Get Backed isn’t just about startup fundraising. It’s a handbook for anyone who has an idea and needs to build relationships to get it off the ground. 

Over the last 3 years, entrepreneurs Evan Loomis and Evan Baehr have raised over $50 million for their own ventures, including the second largest round on the fundraising platform AngelList. In Get Backed, they show you exactly what they and dozens of others did to raise money--even the mistakes they made--uncovering the secrets of the world’s best storytellers, fundraisers, and startup accelerators.


Get the pitch decks of companies who raised over $150 million.

See exactly how 15 ventures raised over $150 million. For each venture, we show how they raised money,  the mistakes they made, and then show you excerpts from the actual pitch decks they used to pitch investors. 


But your deck is just the beginning. You will also learn a step-by-step process that can be used to meet and build relationships with anyone, from investors to board members to potential cofounders.
