A company without sufficient capital will not survive long or will remain a small company for an indefinite amount of time. You know that. A smaller piece of a bigger company is always more valuable than a big piece of a small company and that is why you want your company to grow and attract more clients.
You should start looking for investors from the moment you know that you could use some more capital. It is not an easy process and it is known that VCs can make a decision even after six months or more. In this time, they will analyze the market and the way you conduct the business and pass risky milestones.
I am sure you are aware by now that not any kind of investor can help you use the funds you receive in an effective and productive way. More often than not you need a lot more than money. You need connections, valuable advice and a confident partner. As you might imagine it probably won’t be a first time strike. You will need to talk to a lot of private equity firms from your area, deliver a dozen presentations and get to know a few venture capitalists before finding the right one. Of course, some of them might not want to invest in you, but if you do your part right and promote realistic expectations most of them will.
Start with the right foot by checking the best database of venture capitalist you can find. The key to your well-being is finding capital before the competition finds it and starts drowning the market with their products or services. Prevent that by having all the emails and phone numbers available at just one click away.
Your work is not over even after you get the needed funding. Spend that money wisely and then go after the next wave of funding to grow even more.
