Times are tougher for startups. Raising money in 2022 is a different beast than early to mid 2021. During the pandemic, people were more eager to make deals and make investments. 

Now, startups need to prove that their growth is sustainable and be willing to do this through new metrics like ‘burn multiple’, says Christina Cacioppo, CEO of Vanta, a startup that raised initial seed funding in 2021 and surged forward in 2022 despite a more difficult VC landscape.

Christina provides valuable insights into how to attract funding, meet metrics, hire staff and more in this fascinating chat with Andrew Reed, partner at Sequoia Capital.
