Navigating a Changing Fundraising Landscape with Entrepreneur First

April 10, 2020 Michael V. Copeland

Matt Clifford, co-founder and CEO of Entrepreneur First, takes a global view when investing in people and their ideas. Clifford joins Richard Howard to discuss what he is seeing right now in the startup landscape from London, to Paris, Berlin, Singapore, Bangalore and Toronto – all places where the firm operates. Not surprisingly, to hear Clifford tell it, there is practically no place on earth where startups and their investors are conducting business as usual. And from Clifford’s vantage point, not all investors are erring on the side of a startup’s best interests. So, what should founders anticipate as they look to raise their next round, and whom should they place their trust in as they navigate the months ahead? Clifford offers some answers, and ideas about how startup founders can come out of this period even stronger than when they went in.
