10 Myths of Raising Money, by Tony Greenberg

Posted by Jonathan Greechan on 2013-04-29

Founder Feedback gives you insight from the startup trenches.

In this presentation from the Los Angeles Founder Institute, Tony Greenberg, CEO of RampRate and DeepStrat, debunks 10 Myths of Raising Money. From false ideas of investor engagement to unrealistic market sizes, Tony outlines common startup misconceptions that he has seen throughout his 15 year career in the internet business.

Our favorite myth debunked: smarter people have more success. While a founder's intellect is important to a degree, being smart is more than IQ. Tony says, "learn your strengths and just use them. Listen, surround yourself with smart people, and organize them into teams of innovation".

For more startup insights from Tony, follow him on Twitter @RampRateTony, and apply now for the Los Angeles Founder Institute where he will be mentoring this Summer.
