FounderLine host Joe Beninato and guest Jeff Clavier of SoftTech VC answer listener questions including:

 - What can you build into your company (e.g. policies, culture) to support failing quickly and cheaply in order to make course corrections as quickly as possible?

 - What is the best way to get to know an investor before making a decision about accepting an investment?

 - I'm a female startup founder and I'm finding it hard to tell if VCs aren't taking us seriously because I'm a woman, our idea is bad, or something else. What advice would you give me?

 - How do most acquisitions happen? Is it the acquirer who approaches the startup or vice versa?
