What tells a VC that you are an amateur? originally appeared on Quora – the place to gain and share knowledge, empowering people to learn from others and better understand the world.
Answer by Jason M. Lemkin, CEO/co-founder of EchoSign, on Quora:
Being an amateur is OK, even endearing — if it’s authentic.
But here are some things that say you aren’t ready to raise venture capital:
- You bring “weird” people to the pitch meetings. Do not bring “advisers”. Do not bring anyone that isn’t a key employee. Do not have a non-CEO/founder lead a meeting. CEO or CEO + co-founder only to start.
