This is a tale of a current software startup and all that it’s done and still doing to raise capital. This talk will not sugarcoat anything, it’s the story of the real life startup grind. The company I’ve riased this money for is Badu Networks, a tech company that develops wifi solutions, and it has been around for 2.5 years and has raised $4.5M all from family, friends, and Angels without having any revenue. We’re nowhere near being successful.
Hear what’s worked and what hasn’t. This is real life, right now stuff!
