Hacking funding with AngelList cofounder Naval Ravikant

If you’ve never heard of AngelList or my friend Naval Ravikant, you’ll never forget the man or the platform after this interview. The online community lets potential investors and startups mingle, meet, and get deals flowing. And now with the addition of syndicates, smaller investors can join in on the deals of angel investors they back. As Naval put it, “it’s like Kickstarter, but for equity.” When he sat down with me at LAUNCH Hackathon, we cut to some core questions early-stage entrepreneurs have. Should I join an accelerator? Which one? How do I get through my Series A crunch? When do I stay lean, and when do I try to scale? All these questions and more answered in this great episode.
