How to Raise Capital as a First Time Entrepreneur

Comments (6)

Earlier this week Dave Lavinsky, who writes the Growthink Blog, interview me on How to Raise Capital as a First Time EntrepreneurOther than me doing a crappy job of answering the first question since I was distracted by something going on in my office, I thought Dave put together a great interview.  His post also summarizes three important points he drew out of me:

  1. Your VC firm is your partner
  2. Angel investors are the friend of the first-time entrepreneur
  3. Don’t look for investors who are not a good fit

If you are a first time entrepreneur, wander over to Dave’s blog and have a listen.

    Nice one.
    My advice would be to show some professionalism and knowledge from your market. Do a real case study on your project. Show to investors some real tailored figures instead of showing tons of existing vague info on your market and then they will invest!
