With a foreword by Shark Tank‘s Barbara Corcoran, and published by John Wiley & Sons, The Art of Startup Fundraising takes a fresh look at raising money for startups. Raising capital is an art. Every single ingredient needs to be perfectly balanced in the process in order to secure capital successfully. 

Fundraising takes work. It takes effort, time, and an investment in thinking and taking the small actions that can create big results. Aside from the right mindset and expectations, successful fundraising takes making connections, marketing, and proving yourself and the product. It takes strategically rolling out and executing a plan. Often, that requires help.

For that reason I wrote this book which aims to be the guide that will help you get there in a process that, many times, can be a rollercoaster ride, full of emotions.
