On this week’s Hardware Podcast, we talk seed funding with Katherine Hague, founder and CEO of Female Funders, and previously co-founder of ShopLocket, which she sold to PCH International in 2014.
Hague is an authority on seed financing and has experienced the process from both sides, and she’s both writing an O’Reilly book, Funded: The Entrepreneur's Guide to Raising Your First Round and leading an online seminar on seed funding on June 8, 2016.
If you’re interested in an in-depth tutorial on raising seed funding, register for Katherine’s day-long online workshop, Startup Funding: an Introduction.
This week’s click spirals:
David Cranor: popcorn. Two varieties: butterfly and mushroom. And this explosive method of popping corn used by street vendors in China.
Jon Bruner: duplicate stock photos in advertisements, on book covers, and in campaign TV ads. iStockPhoto’s guidelines for contributors attest to the problem: too many people want to submit photos taken through airplane windows, of “single apples isolated on white,” and of “people doing nothing.” There’s a shortage of “corporate shots” and “people interacting,” so designers tend to recycle those images.
