Elevator Pitch:

Ask a VC anything, for $20.

 

Why It’s A Killer Startup:

Startup founders have a lot of questions. I mean, if you really think about it, my whole job exists because startup founders are always seeking out information to questions, big and small. How does fundraising work? What does MVP mean? Where can I buy those sick startup shirts everyone else is rocking? Where can I hire remote workers to help me as I’m bootstrapping? WTF does bootstrapping mean, anyway?

 

See what I mean? Startups are still such a relatively new thing that most folks didn’t study how to be a startup founder in school or even via their normal networks. The college of Startuplandia is the internet and the professors are all of us.

 

But sometimes you have questions that really need an expert, expert opinion. For those questions, I’d like to recommend you turn to Advice.vc, where you can ask a VC any question you want, for $20. If you’re balking at the idea of paying super rich dudes money just to answer your questions (and I don’t blame you: I would too), you should know that all of the money goes to charity, including Code for America, Girls Who Code, Watsi, and Newstory.

 

Advice.vc works with venture capitalists from August Capital, Felicis Ventures, Ludlow Ventures, Bloomberg Beta, Transmedia Capital, Promus Ventures, and Middleland Capital, as well as various angel investors and serial entrepreneurs. The site directs your questions to the person who can answer it best, delivering top notch advice directly from them to you.

 

Tired of Googling for answers? Are you over reading 8 million blog posts, only to still be unsure about the information you’ve found? Hit up the experts at Advice.vc for all of your startup questions.
