Use Case: Pebble

Smartwatch maker Pebble was a poster child for using Kickstarter during 2012-2016. Coming out of prestigious accelerator program, Y Combinator, the firm raised $375.000 from some of the best known early stage investors in the Valley. By combining crowdfunding (pre-sales) and VC funding, the company was able to find $50M+ of working capital, but regretfully not able to find a working business model, and shut down in December 2016.

How to Use it

Stick it on the walls

The Long-Term Funding Roadmap is an excellent tool in a 1:1 session; and even better for the team, board, stakeholders and early investors.
We recommend sticking the Roadmap on the wall in your office, ideally in a big format like 150 x 110cm or bigger.

Get to Work

You have the Funding Roadmap. Now get to work. Start by building relationships. Cold-calling won’t work. Use your network. Ask for introductions, ask for recommendations. Maintain close dialogue with your early, existing investors. They have the potential to help secure your next set of future investors.

Hint: invite your early investors to contribute intoyour Long-Term Funding Roadmap. It’s a win-win.
