How to Raise Money

Raising capital for your company can be challenging, even for an experienced entrepreneur. To demystify the process, Priori network attorney Robert Lee has written an intuitive guide for entrepreneurs considering a fundraise.

Robert is a serial entrepreneur who has helped clients and friends raise both angel and venture capital funding in addition to having worked in operational roles at two non-VC funded startups with successful exits. He has a BS from Yale and a JD/MBA from UC Berkeley. Robert regularly speaks on legal, business, and technology issues at venues and conferences such as Stanford Business School, Google, Twitter, The Lean Startup Conference and The Bulletproof Biohacking Conference. He has also been an advisor to PCH’s Highway 1 hardware accelerator and Singularity University.

In his document, Robert addresses topics including:

  • How to navigate the fundraising process for first-time entrepreneurs;

  • How to create and leverage advantages;

  • What to expect during valuation;

  • How to gain the trust of investors;

  • When to use convertible notes and SAFEs; and

  • Choosing your business entity.
