“You will never have a second chance to make a first impression. And going first time to raise money speaking with the VCs, with angel investors, with private investors, it’s not about raising money. It’s about making connections and making networks that you’re gonna use for the rest of your life. And the first impression that you make, at this moment, when you meet people first, for the first time is super important.”
