Fundraising Case Studies

Venture Finance Academy, Startups fundraising stories


James Berdigans

"I think the most expensive thing in business is the mistakes you make and mistakes in terms of the direction of where you want to bring the company, and the time you waste in going the wrong direction or focusing on the wrong thing. And if you have somebody experienced like Brad, that is huge because it can save you a ton of money. Having the possibility to have the advice from somebody who has been there and done that before is incredibly valuable."
