I was recently asked to share thoughts on this question posed by my friend Pratik Kundu, who tracks the Energy Space for Traxn.
This project is by far the most steep learning curve I’ve ever been on. Over the last 9 months I’ve submerged myself into understanding our world and it’s elements at a sub-atomic level. Still in-stealth, my new startup, ION Energy will build a core layer of infrastructure to enable electric mobility and clean energy adoption in Asia with a focus on India.
Recently I was asked for "few tips/advice for fund-raising" by a fellow friend whom I had met through a mutual advisor. He is a single founder who has raised $250k but burning through it quickly and needs to close another round of financing.
Here is my answer.
