Justas Janauskas on Get my advice on raising capital from tech VCsCEO @ Qoorio, Co-Founder @ Vinted, Angel InvestorSome time ago
Some time ago, I met with a friend and a founder of one company. She explained how it is difficult for her to work with a few investors who are behaving destructively. They cross the boundaries of their responsibilities. Push founders to do things founders don’t believe. They vent their emotions. The list can go on. Today, I read this powerful letter from a CEO to a detrimental board member. I recommend reading it to everyone who has difficult relations with their investors.

I read it and i am mind-blown, though i have no investors yet ;) Fundraising is a new step in my learning process. I can relate myself to some of the actions therein myself (not responding to emails; asking for prompt feedback though not giving mine; erratic comments and suggestions without going deep into subject; not being emphatic; etc.). This is like seeing myself in the mirror. And i do not like it. Great kick in the ass. This is a must read to everyone. Thank you

I think it is a fantastic topic to explore because yes, first of all we are all human. psychological aspects of any relationship is probably one of the most interesting study objects so far even with tech taking more and more space these days. thank you for sharing

Many early-stage founders, impressed by my previous fundraising success, were asking my advice on how to build a deck to replicate my success. I had one piece of advice for them. Don’t build a deck. Build a business.

And too many founders build startups that need constantly to fundraise... I personally prefer who bootstraps and fundraise to growth, not to survive :)

A well told story is the only persuasion tactic for which we don’t have good defenses. Agree or disagree? Photo: my village in winter

Dear Artūras Šlajus, everything on this earth is based on the law of cause and effect. It means that if Qoorio got 2 million they are worth it, they managed to find someone who believe in big thinking. Let me explain you. From my point of view Qoorio has a huge potential, this potential is linked to the human development which is happening now, specifically because of this pandemic and economic movements, the consciousness of human beings is growing because of all these problems, so the great Qoorio team is on the way to prepare the platform for the human beings who for the moment not even know how they are going to change in the next ten years ;)
