Inside FI gives you exclusive access inside the training sessions of the Founder Institute. To get updates when we release new videos, follow us on Twitter or subscribe to our weekly newsletter here.

In this talk from the Seattle Founder Institute, serial entrepreneur, Dan Shapiro, shares insights from his experience fundraising. While many founders dream of big checks from a brand name VC firm, Dan says “you really have to think hard about whether or not VC money is right for you...VC and angel money can be bad fits for many types of companies.”

Dan Shapiro is the CEO and primary turtle wrangler at Robot Turtles, LLC, a company created when he accidentally launched the bestselling boardgame in Kickstarter history. Before that, Dan spent the last two years at Google after they acquired his last company, Sparkbuy, just six months after he started it.
