Founders
Playbook
A curated audio playbook filled with insights from founders for founders

Listen to fresh perspectives and expert insights


Founders Playbook is a curated collection of playlists covering a broad range of topics to help you attract funding and build a successful startup.

Start with a playlist from Andrew Odo of SVB Startup Banking. His handpicked playlist touches on the stages of venture capital, a VC term sheet, what to expect when you do get venture capital funding, and other helpful insights.
 
 

Playlist 1: Securing and Managing Investors


The entrepreneurial economy is fueled by startup capital. When you’re a founder, understanding the different types of investors who may provide you with funding and navigating the consequences of various financing mechanisms is critical.

 

Playlist 2: Fundraising Mechanics


If startup capital fuels the entrepreneurial economy, its currency is equity. Founders need to understand the various finance and legal mechanics at work behind ownership, as they will ultimately determine who owns how much of your company.

 

Playlist 3: Running Your Startup


As a founder, you shepherd your company’s products from design to delivery. But you’re also responsible for your company’s day-to-day operations. So, you need to know about business incorporation and accounting basics. Choosing the right cofounder and accelerator can also help you succeed.
