This week’s show was all about the important business of raising money to fund new startups. With the vast number of startups featured in the show over the last 5 years, Cooper had a sizeable network of contacts to probe for inspiration. All of them were able to give him their own personal stories of scraping pennies together to make investment dollars. Cooper discovered that their startup success stories are 9 parts innovation and 1 part salesmen. It was fascinating for him to hear the testimonies of some now very well-known companies, recounting how they received investment.
