What can entrepreneurs do to guarantee funding? "They can write themselves a check," says Brad Feld, a venture capitalist at Foundry Group and prolific blogger. Feld sat down with correspondent Reena Jadhav of Ivy Brain to talk about what first-time entrepreneurs should keep in mind when trying to raise funds. One piece of advice from Feld is to "surround yourself with people who've done it before." And, when talking to VCs, remember not to be arrogant but to be real about what "you don't know."
