In this episode of the SaaS Revolution Show our host Alex Theuma is joined by Ed Lascelles, Partner at AlbionVC, and Deepali Nangia, Partner at Speedinvest, who share their experience as VCs on the early days of SaaS startups.

Angels are amazing, especially at times like this when it’s hard for founders and female founders because there’s this bias towards second time founders – in the down market even more. And I think angels can play a very key role here in helping founders in the early stages before we come in.

Ed and Deepali share:

  • The journey vs the destination – Deepali’s move into becoming a partner
  • Why they encourage founders to focus on team building and go to market
  • The lifeblood of the early-stage ecosystem
  • Advice for those raising seed funding
  • Why founders need to heavily emphasise company culture
  • Inspirational SaaS companies breaking barriers (including Surfboard, Darktrace, Onfido, Quantexa)

and more!
