The time has never been better to raise capital. Entrepreneurs from start up to expansion stage have new sources of capital to pursue. Angel Investor organizations are increasing in numbers. Venture Capital and Private Equity funds are increasing in numbers and size of funds. AND, with the changes in regulations from the SEC, entrepreneurs can now pursue investors directly, without the use of a middle man and without prior knowledge of that investor. However, many things haven’t changed. Companies must still have a validated business model, not just a “big idea”. The blog links below will help you understand where to go for capital depending on your stage and industry, and what you need to do to have a hope and a prayer of raising that capital. Each blog has a podcast and educational materials to help you on your journey.
