A Word Regarding Quizzes

  • You may find some of the quiz questions and their answers seem to be fine-grained (fine grained: detailed, in-depth, or involving fine detail).
  • Quizzes reflect the expertise of Alex Chompff and the Evolution Acceleration team. Answers reflect what does and does not work in the real world. As such, they are meant to challenge your understanding.
  • Being fine-grained in your understanding of fundraising result in more productive conversations with prospective investors.
  • Quizzes in this course are meant to help you follow the content, and to begin thinking about situations like a successful founding fundraiser.

About Your Instructor

About Evolution Accelerator

Evolution Accelerator is a venture-studio. We do quite a bit of strategic engagement. We also directly invest from time to time. 

Everyone at Evolution is an operator. It's a requirement. By operators, we mean that we form our own investable companies, putting our own time and money on the line to build startups into growth companies.

When Evolution directly invests, and we're often first money in, we allow portfolio CEOs complete freedom of operation, and support them in whatever way we can to help. Very often help includes free office space, access to markets, support for follow-on funding and so forth.

Our broader network includes a lot of talented people, and we try to make sure everyone is vested in outcomes.
