We have a startup but it’s going to be impossible to get started without $50 million. Where do I start?

It’s really hard to do — but there is an answer.

You need to find a founding CEO to join you who can raise that sort of money.  Someone who sold her last company for $500m-$1b+.

They can raise it, probably.  Once you have a big (or even medium) win under your belt, VCs will give you a lot more money to Go Even Bigger next time.

So that’s not you.  But that person is out there.

Go recruit her.
