Looking Beyond VC

The fundamentals to successful fundraising

DESCRIPTION

80 hour work weeks, scrapping to get funding, and fighting for every customer. We know how hard bootstrapping is, that’s how we started.

There are two gifts you need to give yourself. Capital and a long enough runway to succeed.

Fundraising when you are boostrapping is tough… Investors try to take too much equity, VCs push for hyper-growth at the expense of the product, and new board of directors try to steer your ship.

Navigate fundraising with confidence.

Trends has invited Tyler Tringas (founder of Earnest Capital) and David Perell (founder of Write of Passage) to host a live Q&A to show you the ins and outs of funding for bootstrappers.

You will learn how to adapt to the pandemic, the fundamentals of a profitable software company, and tactics for fundraising a bootstrapped company. Even ask Tyler and David your own questions during the live Q&A.

Create a healthy and profitable business, on your own terms.

The signal: As meditation becomes mainstream, people may be surprised to find that searches for sleep apps double their meditation counterpart. As people invest in getting a better night’s rest, there’s opportunity abound, including physical products like weighted blankets or premium PJs, supplements like melatonin (50k+ searches per month), popular insomnia drugs having their patents expire (ex: Silenor), companies paying their employees to sleep better, marketing for sleep specialists, or online sleep education (ex: sleep apnea test has 27k searches per month). 

AltMIlk

The signal: As more people wave goodbye to dairy, alternative milk is slowly taking over; it has already cornered 13% of the market. With the exception of soy milk, all of the alt-milks have been on the up, with some of the newer entrants including hemp milk and pea milk. Other alt-products are getting attention, including cashew cheese, with 18100 searches per month.

AirpodSales@3x

The signal: Since killing the headphone jack, Apple has graced the world with AirPods, which did an estimated 60m units in 2019. That means AirPods alone are bringing in approx ~$10b in revenue, more than Twitter, Shopify, or Spotify, to name a few popular tech giants. Opportunity lies in Apple opening up SiriOS or the wave of iPhone accessories (including cases, cleaning kits, hooks, and keychains) which have shown “hockey stick” growth alongside their hardware predecessor.
