My advice: diligence your potential investors the same way they’ve no doubt diligenced you (even if you’ve just met them).
Ask to talk to founders in their portfolio who failed. See how they support founders who’ve struggled.
Only then feel comfortable with them on your board.
These rounds involve a partner joining your board for the next 10-15 years. They’ll be who you rely on when you’re growing—and when you’re struggling.
Making a commitment with no diligence feels as strange as a shotgun marriage. Would you marry someone after knowing them 72 hrs?
One trend I’m noticing: the rise of the shotgun financing.
An increasing number of companies are rushing into Series A, B, etc financings without running a full process — sometimes within 72 hours of meeting a partner.
