Join Newfund Capital Partner Augustin Sayer as he explains the ins and outs of raising seed funding in a bull market.

In 2021 startup funding broke records. With all that money floating around, it can be easy to lose your head, but according to venture capitalist Augustin Sayer, a bull market is the wrong time to lose your discipline.

Sayer is a partner at Newfund Capital, a transatlantic VC fund with offices in Paris and San Francisco that specializes in seed-stage funding. At a Founders Network webinar on Jan. 22, 2022, Sayer will explain the ins and outs raising seed funds in a bull market.

As a former entrepreneur turned VC, Sayer says there’s a reason funds prefer to invest with second time entrepreneurs. The webinar is designed to help founders avoid first-time entrepreneur mistakes and learn how to effectively talk to VCs.

“There is a science to talking to venture capitalists and adapting your speech to the VC you have across from you,” Sayer says. “All VCs are different and they don’t want to hear the same things.

Sayer will also cover:

  • How the bull market affects different stages of funding
  • Whether startups should increase seed funding during a bull market
  • What traps entrepreneurs should be aware of during bull markets
  • What founders should know about VC scouts in the current market

Testimonials

If you don't have a cohort group in something like Founders Network that you can develop long-term relationships with and discuss the same topics that come up with people that you already know, you're probably missing out on something very important.

David Plonsky

The number one advantage is the law of compound interest. The longer you stay in a very high-quality network the strong and more authentic relationships you build.

Chaitanya Vaidya

We know each other's business and we know each other's struggles. Having a personal relationship with other founders that is completely confidential and completely authentic gives you a lot of great advice.

Doug Lessing

FN manages my network for me by connecting me with other founders in my specific industry sector. I've been able to explore business development opportunities, partnerships, etc.

Becky Splitt

We just saw the first Mexican unicorn come to life this same week which is a fantastic idea. Being part of the Founders Network makes a lot of sense. We see that the Mexico City chapter is growing substantially.

Max Linares

There's a lot of great stuff going on even now in San Francisco. I've found Founders Network has been a great resource for me and for all of the founders I know during these tough times.

Jarie Bolander

It allowed me to meet people who had done this before that had the experience. I was able to explain an issue very briefly and they were able to give me a very detailed response on how they addressed it.

Terence Finn

I've used the platform to discover advice, connections, resources, discounts, on important services, connections to investors, and practice on how to pitch. The kind of conversations you can't get anywhere else on youtube or google searches.

Alexandra Greenhill

I see Founders Network as one of those necessary resources in the Chicagoland area.

Jason Jacobsohn

The Black Founders initiative allows me to shape this program where we can inspire, engage, and support Black Founders.
