– Startup Funding Explained –
Seed, Post-Seed, Series A, Series B. Convertible Notes vs. Priced Rounds. Common vs Preferred Shares vs. Stock Options.
The fundraising process for a startup requires a crash course on some terminology that you’ve probably never heard of.
There’s no evil corporation making it confusing on purpose, you know, like banks and credit cards. This is just a complex topic that requires an understanding of some legal and financial terminology.
When companies have such vast potential, and when you deal with such large sums of money, everyone wants protection to make sure their time or their cash investments are safe.
So- to better explain all of this, we are going to tell the story of a startup company, from funding to IPO.

Starting the company – 0:53
Company Valuation – 3:11
Company incorporation – 4:20
Vesting – 6:39

  1. i hope you grow even more as a youtube channel and as a business .. you really deserve the best .. i genuinely learnt a lot since day 1 of me discovering this channel … keep up the good work and good luck

  2. Caya, gracias hermanito, all your videos have been very educational to say the least. Will be using your slides once we begin the presentation process. Saludos tambien a tu equipo chingon ~

  3. In Caya/Slidebean, I believe! Because of your insights, training and business case, I have gained very useful knowledge for my new startup. In fact, you have played a big part in starting my business. One day one I am successful, I will invite you to Rwanda for an amazing tour with ZaNiheza ( my startup).

  4. Hey Caya! Pura vida Mae. I'd love to have a zoom meeting with you regarding Slidebean. Where can I find your calendly link? Love your work man. Keep it up! Cheers!

  5. Gaaaahhh I need more lol, great content Caya as always, so when the founder left the company with say 15% shares, do they get the option to sell their share? Can they get a loan from a bank and use their share as from previous company as collateral?

  6. This is the best break down I've ever come across and I can't wait till next Tuesday to ask Caya live on discord because I have a question or two on this.. Thank you so much, this channel is the best thing on YouTube and the founderhub is also awesomeness.
