Jeff Bussgang presented a Skillshare class entitled "Mastering the VC Game: How to Raise Your First Round of Capital" at the Harvard innovation lab on April 3, 2012. Jeff is a Senior Lecturer in Entrepreneurship at HBS and a General Partner at Flybridge Capital Partners. Students learned about the startup financing landscape, how to find investors, how to pitch them, how to understand term sheets, and other tips for raising a first round of financing. The seminar was intended to address questions like: You've been working on a big idea and need financing to get it going: but how do you go about raising your first round of funding? What's the difference between angel, seed, and VC investors? How do you go about valuing your company and deciding on equity?
In Part 2, Jeff gives advice on what entrepreneurs should and shouldn't do when pitching their ideas to VC's and what are the most commonly used levers that VC's have on price in a term-sheet.

It takes more than a fantastic idea, traction and a killer management team to grab the attention of high-powered VCs. Watch as tagMap, which produces a social-networking app that brings people together based on common interests, presents its idea to Tim Draper, the noted Silicon Valley VC and co-founder of venture firm DFJ, and decide for yourself if the company's a worth-while investment.
At a time when there are so many ways to fund your startup, from angels to accelerators, it's more important than ever to develop a funding strategy that fits your particular needs. Maybe you shouldn't even raise money! In this session we'll explore the options and help you think through not just your initial funding but a trajectory to stay funded until you've reached your goal, be that an independent public company or a self-sustaining social venture. We'll also try to remove the mystique of VC and as usual bring some case examples to bear to bring it all to life.
