  • How building relationships early on in the company lifecycle can yield capital later on
  • Why venture capital funding can change the dynamics of your investor relations
  • When to plan for fundraising rounds that will complement your company culture
  • Why private companies are staying private for longer and how Capdesk helps employees get much needed transparency and liquidity over their shareholding
