Paul Pluschkell, CEO of StartupOS sits down with Dan Loney, host of the Wharton Business Daily, to discuss the origins of StartupOS and the value it creates for founders today. Paul and Dan also explore the following questions: Are startups struggling to find funding in this challenging economy? If so, what can they do about it?
Paul states that investors speak a very different language, one that founders must learn to be able to raise capital. He lists the following 3 critically important things he tells his mentees — after telling them to survive at all costs, that is:
- Show investors that you are low risk;
- Prove that you have huge potential; and
- Showcase outside interest.
Listen below to find out how you can achieve all three and go get funded!
StartupOS stands at the intersection of founders, investors and partners, as they all seek to advance early-stage companies down a road to success. Our mission is to build a platform that targets the earliest stages of entrepreneurship by democratizing access to the resources and knowledge that will accelerate growth and remove the most common friction points on a startup’s journey.
Together, we will dramatically increase the overall number of startups and the probability of success for new, diverse generations of founders. Creative doers welcome!
