MITCNC Event
Hacking the Fundraising Process
Sep 22 - Virtual Event

Raising money for your startup venture is a stressful and time-consuming process. Most founders have little or no experience fundraising, leading to unnecessary stress and poor outcomes. Hear from John Whaley ‘99 on techniques to make fundraising more predictable for entrepreneurs. You will learn how to identify appropriate investors and pique their interest, how to kickstart a fundraising process and maintain momentum, how to pitch your startup, how to evaluate a term sheet, and how to close out a round. Whether you are a first-time founder or a serial entrepreneur, you will learn something new.

John Whaley (MIT B.S. and MEng ‘99, Stanford PhD ‘07) has founded two companies for which he helped raise over $100M from top-tier venture capital firms. He also coaches startups on fundraising strategy via Stanford StartX. He is currently CEO of UnifyID, a security and authentication company.
