Raise Venture capital: how to find the venture funding you need
It's true that the Internet holds a wealth of resources concerning
There is even a National Venture Capital Association.
However, all the research in the world can only get you so far.
Sooner or later, you're going to have to put together a business plan to approach a venture capitalist.
When that moment comes, you'll need all the help you can get.
So here are a few very brief pointers to raising venture capital:
Most venture capitalists look at eight to ten business plans for every entrepreneur they meet, and many business plans are rejected unread since they don’t meet particular investment criteria, or they’re in a sector the VC wishes to avoid.
Much will hinge on how credible you and your business plan is.
The venture investor needs to be convinced that your business has the potential for sustained growth, and that you and your management team have the ability to make it happen.
If you get short-listed, there follows a detailed appraisal of your proposal.
If you get this far, you have a much better chance of securing venture capital.
The process of seeking venture capital can be a minefield.
The venture capital investor will seek to maximize their own advantage, and this can leave you in a position you are not comfortable with.
Also, when turning over your business plan to professional consultants, there is a danger that you will lose control of your own idea.
Accountants and management consultants can focus so much on cash-flow, budgets, etc, that the focus may wander away from you, the entrepreneur.
That's one reason why it's so important to select consultants who will respect your part in the whole process.
