How to get funding, as told by August Capital (video)

The Internet has fundamentally changed the ways in which startups receive funding these days. In many ways, it’s much easier to connect with investors that you want to work with, but on the other hand, it’s much more difficult to secure funding because of the massive amount of competition in the marketplace.
