Coming to the decision to pursue funding is no easy matter, but it’s a piece of cake compared to the ominous beast of successfully securing funding. Knowing how to present yourself, your company, and your story can make all the difference.

However, knowing when to walk away from an investor that isn't a good fit with your company is also crucial. 

Mike Evans is a Co-founder GrubHub, and in this talk from the Chicago Founder Institute below, Mike shares his lessons learned on how to engage with investors, and how to evaluate the benefits and terms of different deals (the numbers used in the presentation are speculative and the expressed opinion of Mike alone). 

Mike believes the secret lies in focusing your sights on getting the right money, telling your story well, and closing the deal.

Applications to the Chicago Founder Institute are open now. Click here to apply today.
