It kills me when the conversation is going so well… and then the entrepreneur drops this little gem into the mix.
“Yeah, so we’re raising $X for Y% of the company.”
NO ONE TALKS LIKE THAT IN REAL LIFE.
If you’re raising money, just talk like a normal human being.
“OK, so we’re raising $X and that’ll give us 18 months of runway. We should be able to hit [MILESTONE] in half that time.”
That’s it. Nothing special. Just be relatable. Have a discussion. See where it goes.
