I'm currently working full-time at a media company and have a side hustle that is doing pretty well. It's a subscription-based service that is pretty high-end and high-touch. One of our members works at a VC and reached out to our community manager about getting in touch with me about investing. We set up a coffee. What should be my objective out of the coffee? Should I bring a pitch deck? So far I've bootstrapped it so I haven't built a deck for investors. We've only so far considered doing an accelerator. I would be looking to do a 500k raise here as a seed round based on our plans.
My background: Founded a marketing startup out of college, 3 YOE as a seller TC: 280k
I'd make less salary as a CEO of the startup but believe in the business and would quit my job immediately if we get the investment.
Would love any input!
Feel free to message me directly if you have any questions. Best of luck to you.
