Raising capital is one of the most challenging aspects of starting and growing a business.
Finding an investor that shares the vision, has the interest and will commit the capital takes time and energy. Committing to a particular investor is like committing to a marriage; without a common foundation, it can mean years of misery for both parties!
The first step to minimize the stress involved in this process is to compile a strong and compelling business plan and due diligence materials that inspires confidence and entices potential investors. Along with a comprehensive industry and competitive analysis, this plan should incorporate a detailed and realistic financial model that identifies the capital requirements and outlines how the business plans to grow and what the investor can expect as a return.
