Aisera’s Muddu Sudhakar on Fundraising the Right Way

Since launching in late 2017, AI service experience startup Aisera successfully raised over $164M from VCs such as Zoom, Menlo Ventures, First Round Capital and Norwest Ventures — helping them grow to the +180 employee company they are today.

Co-founder and CEO Muddu Sudhakar gives his tips on fundraising:

  • Vision is everything. Make sure your investors share it and are in it for the long haul.
  • Board members matter. Get people who are running businesses now.
  • Don’t waste your time. If they have serious interest, they will invest early on.
