Let me phrase that otherwise: "if I have to ask you about your track record, you probably don't have one." There's a huge difference between a CV and a track record. Don't mistake one for the other. A CV lists what you have done without necessarily proving that you are good at anything. A track record shows that you are really good at something. Sure, you could have a track record of robbing banks (not necessarily a "good" thing but you're probably good at it if you've gotten away with it a couple times!) Understand what I am getting at?
Let's connect this to venture capital and where your track record comes into play. If you have one as a kick-ass founder, the VC's will come to you. Trust me, your work is done being a known entity in the VC space, even if you're flawed as fuck (which many entrepreneurs are). There's plenty of funds who have to invest their capital and they will find you. Some will even go as far as to get you on board as an EIR (entrepreneur in residence) and pay you a salary while you figure out what you'll do next. Lesser known individuals may have a great track record but never actually became "well known" to the VC space. I remember over the past 15 years every now and again (like once or twice) stumbling across someone and asking myself how they could possibly not have yet been discovered. They probably chose not to be but these folks are like unicorns. Hard to find! If you're reading this, you probably belong to "the rest". No disrespect but you DON'T MATTER yet!
That sucks but we've all been there. The best of the best had ZERO track record at some point so don't despair. Most importantly, don't be delusional and think you have a track-record having interned at a start-up. Even if you've started something on your own and failed, you still don't matter. Sure, VC's like to see that you know how to fail but this is different than a track record. Anything but a track record means working super hard to convince VC's to invest based on other merits.....an amazing team of people willing to work with you, kick-ass products, huge customers or partners, etc. If you don't have a track record, you will have to figure out another angle to get people to give you money. Don't lose time trying to prove that you ARE relevant based on what you've done. Show that you've convinced people to quit their jobs, take a pittance as a salary and shoot for the stars with you. Or build a product that truly is innovative and easily understood. Land that large corporate willing to give you a couple hundred thousand up front for an idea which you'll turn into a product. Spend the time making it clear why you are worth betting on now even though you may not yet be known.
There are a ton of things you can do to raise money without a track record. The hardest part is usually first realizing that you don't have much of one and the need to focus on the other stuff. The earlier you suck it up and internalise that your track record probably isn't going to get you funded the longer you have to get things in place that will have VC's placing their bets on you. Strive to become the unicorn, accept at least being the thoroughbred but avoid being the ass!
