Today, many startup founders wonder how to write a great blurb for their firms. Well, it's not rocket science, but effort has to be there! A twitter thread...

#startups #blurb #intro #pitch #gist #economics #business #finance #investment Image
A great blurb always helps startup owners effectively introduce their products & services to their target audience. Besides increasing the sales, a short yet crispy blurb can also attract investors for startup funding. It can be a tool to attract the best talents, too. #HR #IT
Your startup blurb should be different for different purposes, but here’s what a great blurb should consist of:

-A pitch within 25 words.
-Use bullet points to highlight relevant stuff.
-Additional context

#Value proposition. I would like to disclose how we #support our #portfolio companies, because I do believe that neither #investments nor market making are enough, if there is nothing else provided. Our #vision is to be a #partner and friend for our portfolio companies and…… Image
Market making (#MM)- it has three main parts: Market #depth - we add more #liquidity on bid and ask side across exchanges where a token is listed on. Spread - we reduce the spread between the best bid and ask offers by adding more quotes around the middle price in the order book.……
#PR and #marketing - the most powerful tool to boost projects on the #crypto market. We support projects with everything from #media to KOLs, and we can act as an outsourcing marketing agency (spoiler - we will extract our marketing department to an independent company very……

You should NEVER pitch as a pair or a team. When fundraising, you've got to pitch.

Always have only ONE person doing this.

It's (barely) OK if multiple people fundraise, especially in the very early days. But you should always let 1 person lead any given relationship.
Don’t co-pitch.

Once the company is off the blocks, one person should then lead ALL fundraising activities.

Two people (or more) pitching means more possibilities for a fuckup.

All an investor needs is a bad feeling about 1 of the co-founders and it’s over.
If you talk over each other, it's also over.

Worse: team pitching makes the whole pitch less clear and precise. The more people in a call, the less time you'll have to make an impression in those precious 15 to 30 minutes you get.

Again, our friend @YazaNico needs your help. She can't pay her and her mother's living costs (rent, heat, etc).

If you can, please help her. She's @/anna1858 on PayPal.

She still needs around $300. We will give more context in replies.

#Crowdfund #Fundraising #emergencyfund
In short, she has to take care of her mom who's been in a fragile mental health state in the past few years.

She tried to reach out to her dad for help but his current partner has made him cut ties with her and her mother.
She's been using what savings they have, but she's literally a student in Hungary without any support network beyond her online friends and things are spiraling.

We at The Civil War and the Fight for the Soul of America seek to educate people about the REAL history of the mid-nineteenth century and the Civil War, through the film itself, public history, and social media. We need your help to continue with this vitally important project!
For far too long our history has been white-washed, made to fit a Lost Cause narrative. The North may have won the Civil War, but the white South won the cultural war - a crisis that continues to plague America today.
We have set up a @gofundme page to aid fundraising efforts with a goal of $23,000!

With your donation you create jobs for M.A. and Ph.D.-level historians to work as research assistants: every single dime goes to paying them!

You can find our page here:

This may be an unpopular opinion (so be kind!) but I've been reflecting lately on the beast that is #Fundraising Ego.

I often see fundraisers in our sector talking about how they've raised £****M and it's causes me to question - have you though?

Here's a little #MondayMusing 🧵
Have you raised this money or have you had the privilege of helping generous people give their money?

Have you raised this money or have you experienced the joy of supporting and cheerleading inspiring fundraisers as they complete challenges and awesome endeavours?
Sure, you've presented, pitched and won partnerships, but it was the company, together with their employees and customers who gave, fundraised or offered products with a donation from each sale

🧵 Two words sum up Bluefrog's latest findings from speaking to donors as the cost of living crisis tightens – accept and adapt.

Donors want a coherent narrative of their own to counter the chaotic world we live in – which is felt to be increasingly outside their control. 1/6 Image
The seemingly never-ending series of crises we face has caused people to readjust their focus. They are accepting and adjusting to the big things that are beyond their control (such as the war in Ukraine and the economic crisis). But the need for control has not diminished. 2/6
It has been transferred to those areas which are closest to their own lives and is of growing importance. That means there is more desire amongst donors to see the impact of their giving and, importantly, to know that their gifts are appreciated. 3/6

1/ A month ago, our team at @defihelper raised $500,000 in the Pre-Seed round from a number of VCs with @bigbrainholdings leading the round. In this thread, I will summarize our fundraising experience.

#fundraising #VentureCapital #crypto 🧵
2/ The first thing to work out is what type of investors you are targeting. If you are a truly ambitious protocol, with a strong concept, then you should be able to find capital easily enough.
3/ The key is to remember that an investment is a PARTNERSHIP — what the investor can offer you (besides money) is crucial for a healthy, working relationship.
