Startup Funding: What I learned after raising capital outside the US
The story of this company ( Slidebean) is about fundraising. It’s the origin, it was our biggest struggle and ironically, what ended up helping other companies do.
Early ideas for this presentation-design-assistance tool first came to me in 2012. Back then I was working on my first startup, an iOS gaming called Pota-Toss. The experience of sharing an office with other founders (and seeing them struggle with their pitch decks) was the first spark of the idea to build this product.
