Founders shouldn’t have to figure fundraising out the hard way when they can learn from those who have already been through the process. The Holloway Guide to Raising Venture Capital is full of practical advice that will be helpful to any entrepreneur.Brad Feld, Managing Director at Foundry Group

We’re thrilled to announce that readers can now get lifetime access to the Holloway Guide to Raising Venture Capital for $100.

Venture capital is a powerful tool for entrepreneurship—one that can help overcome some of the numerous challenges of starting and scaling a new business. But the path of deciding if, when, and how to raise early-stage venture capital is navigated most easily by those with past experience, insider knowledge, and the right connections. It’s notoriously easy for founders to take wrong turns in their path to successfully finance a company.

We know this problem from first-hand experience. The lead author of this Guide, Andy Sparks, raised $17M for his last startup—having failed to secure any funding for his first company. He’d moved to Silicon Valley without a network, and spent the next four years piecing together how fundraising works, from hundreds of conversations, countless hours of internet searches, and multiple $900 sessions with lawyers.

Learning how to fundraise doesn’t have to be so painful. Anyone aspiring to build a company should have access to the experiences and knowledge of those who have gone before.

We researched 750+ sources, and worked with 40+ contributors—founders, investors, and startup lawyers—to build a practical Guide that helps founders approach the process with confidence. From lawyer fees alone, this Guide will save founders at least $40,000.

Inside the Guide, you’ll find 15 in-depth sections (and three appendices), each written to be read in under two hours, over lunch breaks and in-between putting the kids to bed and passing out.

We look forward to your questions and suggestions! If you’ve bought the Guide, tweet to us @holloway.
