Founder tip: Send your investors monthly updates. I know it can be annoying and I’ve missed months when things are hectic, but it’s for your benefit. It’s a great way to: - Get help (ask for it!) - Build trust (very important for raising the next round) - Reflect internally

Founders: In your investor updates, consider giving shout outs to the people that helped the company since the last update. It’s a great way to: 1. Recognize those that put in the work 2. Subtly peer pressure everyone else to help ;)
