What are the best practices for raising a seed round after a Demo Day?

  1. Approach the hottest leads first 
  2. Leave printout of key metrics (e.g. users, top buyers etc.) after meeting investors. Leave only the cherry with them and not the cake. 
  3. Get to "how much are you raising" and "for what purpose" in the first few sentences. Leave out the "valuation" for later. 
  4. Make sure you have good news to give in the follow up meetings (so prepare accordingly). For example - if you are an e-com company, don't reduce your marketing budget when you are in the middle of discussions with investors.
