A Lead Investor is the investor who is leading a startup’s financing round. The investor leads by (1) writing the biggest check, (2) negotiating the terms, or (3) both. Oftentimes, a round can not really start until a lead investor is identified.
We finally identified a lead investor for our $3M Series A round, so now the other smaller investors are ready to close.
