From the LendIt Fintech Vault: Steve McLaughlin of FT Partners on Raising Capital and M&A

Two fintech legends, Steve McLaughlin of FT Partners and Ron Suber, sat down to discuss raising capital and M&A in fintech at LendIt Fintech USA 2019; they discussed the disparity in valuation between the public and private markets and why most hot fintech companies are staying private longer; the importance of telling a compelling story when raising money or going public; the areas of fintech that are overhyped and those that have been somewhat overlooked by the market; what makes a compelling pitchbook when talking with investors.
