Ultimately, to build a startup into an enduring, valuable company, it’s a requirement to successfully execute the fundraising process multiple times.

Decoding the most critical processes founders need to successfully execute and providing a step by step insider’s guide is one of the core objectives of The Unusual Method. We’ve taken our collective experiences as an investor and successful founder, our obsessive study of the best practices of other master practitioners, and we’ve packaged everything and made it available to every founder through our Unusual Field Guide.
Our new fundraising guide is a cornerstone module for our Field Guide. We’ve shared all we’ve learned over the years about the fundraising process from our own experiences, other successful founders, and premier venture capitalists, including:

We hope you will dive into our Unusual Fundraising Guide and share any feedback you have. Please follow us on Twitter, LinkedIn, and subscribe to our newsletter for future modules.
