The Power Of Accessible Experiences

Everyone seems to have the secret or program to get founders funded. There’s accelerators, paid programs, free programs, pitch competitions, courses put on by VCs to learn, etc. When I was younger, I ate all of this stuff up. Now that I’m several years into tech, I realize that’s it’s truly all about relationships. And although this is bad news for out of network founders, I don’t believe anything can replace a context built up between two individuals via shared experiences. Instead of trying to “hack” the fundraise, maybe we can just make having those experiences more accessible to founders.
