Why are some SaaS companies raising significant funds while others struggle to find their first customers or determine what to build?

We caught up with Sanjit Singh Dang, the Chairman and Co-founder of U First Capital, at the Ascent conference and he shares his insights as a VC evaluating startups—most notably how VCs now require more proof points on the customer side and ask the crucial question of "why now?" to evaluate product market fit with startup opportunities.

He also discusses effective pitch tactics, such as showcasing customer feedback and engaging in whiteboard sessions to understand the entrepreneur's passion and clarity of thought.
