Some say you should raise as much capital as you can, as soon as you can, as often as you can, period. Others say VC is not for everyone - or worse! When you're an early stage founder, navigating the trove of advice can be treacherous and confusing. This panel of founders will share experiences and advice about what kinds of businesses would do well with VC funding, who, when and why should businesses bootstrap, and whether one or the other spells success or failure. Before you try raising a penny, save your hard-earned equity and come listen to what they have to say!
