Decoding the Mysteries of Founder & Investor Relations with Sena Zorlu from Kubera Venture Capital Part 2
Greg and Sena Zorlu, Venture Partner at Kubea Venture Capital & founder of her own stealth startup give you another shot at understanding how investors think about your startup. Are you communicating what investors need to hear? Do they "get" your pitch? How do you make sure what you're saying is what they are hearing? So many founders may think they’re communicating one thing, when actually it’s another, and it may not be at all what’s in the pitch deck, or conversation! Sena and Greg reveal to founders what investors see, think & discern. Founders not only learn about this fascinating founder, investor & new stealth startup leader, they'll gain insights into how investors tick, and also what founders can do to be more clear communicating with investors, and understanding why investor’s perceptions land where they do. Sena Zorlu is diving headlong into the startup world again. She has helped me improve my knowledge as a venture capital investor. She's especially effective at evaluating companies in our work together at Kubera. She’s amazingly insightful, a powerful communicator & a force to be reckoned with. So you need to hear from her. Listen, imbibe & enjoy the vibe.
