Produced by Foundersuite.com, "How I Raised It" goes behind the scenes with startup founders who have raised capital. This episode is with Derek Andersen, founder of Startup Grind (www.startupgrind.com) and now Bevy (www.bevy.com), a platform to host virtual online events and build a community.
In this episode, Derek talks about the ROI of building a community and the benefits of word-of-mouth marketing, how he grew Startup Grind to over 500 chapters worldwide without raising capital, why he decided to go the VC route for Bevy, what he looked for in a VC partner, how to create scarcity and demand for your deal, and much more.
The Company has raised more than $21 million over three rounds. The most recent was a $15 million Series B deal led by Accel. Upfront Ventures and Ryan Smith also participated.
This series is produced by Foundersuite, makers of software to raise capital and manage investor relations. Foundersuite's customers have raised over $2.2 Billion since 2016.
