More about this course

Less than 1% of businesses looking for equity funding actually get it.

There are several reasons for this; all relating to the following:

  • Not knowing what an investor is looking for
  • Not knowing how an investor likes to be approached
  • Wasting time with irrelevant information
  • Having an unrealistic proposal/valuation
  • Not protecting your business before approaching investors
  • Not being pitch-ready
  • Trying to avoid difficult questions by changing the topic
  • Not knowing what those difficult questions are
  • Not seeking professional advice before taking the plunge

Having interviewed investors, fund managers, Venture Capitalists and Family Office's I have compiled a must-do list for anyone who is thinking of approaching an investor for funding.

If you want any chance of being a part of the less than 1% of businesses to attract equity investment: you must prepare properly or be incredibly lucky.

This course is that preparation for anyone considering seeking equity investment for their company/idea, through a set of short, simple to do steps that you must consider before seeking investment.
