A continued discussion on customer funding and obtaining it through memberships, payment cycles, and customer modelling

Last week we welcomed best-selling author of Mastering the Rockefeller Habits and Scaling Up, Verne Harnish, to the stage to discuss ‘customer funding your startup’. This week, we handed the mic over to the audience who shared their tips and asked questions for funding a startup. We want to know– What would you do differently? What have you learned along the way? Also, the differences between customer funding and crowdfunding, the right time to seek funding, and what kind your startup needs.
