II. Prepare your client’s exit strategy (and plan for it)
III. Delve into the mindset of your client’s potential investors

Great summary of the rules
I recently moved to SF and fundraising is a huge issue here. Was happy to have this information.
Wish it were longer! Please have him do more courses!
I now almost regret my usually high ratings I give to presenters here as that makes my "stupendous" grade here have less value. I have the inclination, but, regrettably, not the time, to go to an on-line thesaurus to look for more superlatives. This has been the one session that had the most per$onal value to me, so I was particularly happy that it was first class.
This was a great programme! Loads of well presented issues in start up finance.
