Startup Conversations: Alice Cheng from Upfront Ventures
On March 9, 2021, we had a fantastic chat with Alice Cheng, Associate with Upfront Ventures. Alice's focus is on biology and deeptech, though Upfront itself invests across a number of industries. She joined us to talk about issues that many entrepreneurs face, especially first-time founders who are coming in with a scientific background.
In this discussion, Alice explains the basics of funding rounds, what VC's look for in the earliest of early stage companies, types of funding instruments, cap tables, and how to build a team. Take a look to learn answers to some of the most common questions first-time biotech founders ask.
