Quotes:

“It's been…kind of one foot in front of the other, just grinding away adding more features that people need for their fundraising journey.” Nathan Beckord, (4:20)

 

”I like to tell founders…there's…a couple of right ways and a thousand wrong ways to raise capital. We're trying to build these tools, like the bumpers at the bowling lane that kind of keep you in the right lane.” Nathan Beckord, (9:21)

 

“I believe there's a strong corollary between the speed at which your fundraising is going and the likelihood you are to actually be successful.” Nathan Beckord, (9:54)


“I built this because I really want to be a founder and…I knew fundraising, I had been doing that forever. That's like the one thing I really know deeply.” Nathan Beckord, (17:07)
