Knowledge session: How to prepare for a follow-on funding round
The topic of the next MatchingWINGS knowledge session is on the preparation of a next investment round.
Angel investors seek investment cases with high growth potential. They are well aware that first external (angel) round is not sufficient to realize venture’s full growth potential. In general follow-on investment rounds will be planned. The discussion of this session is dedicated to those activities required for the next investment round. Experiences of VC, angel investor and entrepreneur will be shared:
- Joost Snoep (Ruffena Capital) will introduce the VC expectations. VCs typically join the investment opportunity after one or more angel rounds. An understanding of their requirements is therefore key for angel investors.
- Rogier de Haan (Cackleberry Ventures) will share his experiences as angel investor supporting startup entrepreneurs in their next investment rounds.
- Rudi Dieleman (Pectcof) will provide the entrepreneurs perspective by sharing her most important learnings in the investment raising process.
