    Some key take-aways from Sean that most founders get wrong:
    1. You need to start your fundraise with dozens and dozens of investor names. Not 2 or 3.
    2. Stay as organized as a VP of Sales would who is juggling a lucrative pipeline of leads that his commission check and career depends on. [Slides 4 + 10]
    3. If the investor doesn’t “get it”, specifically the pain you’re solving, in the first meeting or call, they will make your life miserable. Do not pursue. [slide 8]
