If you think about it, raising money for a business is pretty straight forward. All a CEO has to do is:
- identify potential investors
- create a pitch deck
- schedule a meeting
- negotiate terms
- navigate due diligence
- close the deal
Simple, right? Nothing to it.
But we all know it doesn’t work that way. In fact, I often hear from entrepreneurs how stressful the process is of raising money from angel investors or venture capitalists.
Actually, I believe you can virtually eliminate the stress from the fundraising process. I’ll be talking about how in upcoming posts.
But first, please share why YOU believe it’s so stressful when raising money for your business. The survey is only three questions.
