The “Grumpy Entrepreneur” | Wedotalk with David
Go to https://getwedo.today This week, David interviewed David Murray-Hundley. David is a successful computer programmer and entrepreneur, and is an advisor, mentor and investor to many early-stage companies. He started programming at the age of 9, and having watched the movie “War Games”, aspired to hack the Pentagon. One of his games was later recognized and released. David was an early student of artificial intelligence and B2B internet solutions and sold an early business to Chase Bank. In 1999, David moved to the US to become one of the founding team at CommerceOne. David’s life has not always been a string of successes, and he has found himself at a low point twice in his life. First, as a teenager, shortly after the sudden passing of his father, he slept rough in bus shelters. Later in his adult life, he declared bankruptcy and had to re-build his life from the beginning. David has worked for 9 companies and has been involved in 47 companies as a founder, mentor, advisor, director or investor. Since the Covid-19 outbreak in 2020, he has helped and advised more than 2,000 companies.

#askgrumpy Basics of sending a investment deck
So this is a bit of a Basic 101, suck eggs on sending a deck. Its probably going to get harder to raise money in the next few year, certainly here in the UK. So the ratio was low in terms of getting to a conversation and that will get even harder. Spend time on just knowing who you are contacting. Don't be lazy and think its easy. Most noise out there made by people who say its easy raising money generally have not raised seed rounds or series A. Feel free to ask me a question at #askgrumpy www.thegrumpyentrepreneur.com Or tweet me here @TheGrumpyE Thanks David Murray-Hundley The Grumpy Entrepreneur
