When you are starting your own business, having a plan in place before you start to get into the financing stage is critical. Investors are going to want to know that you have done your planning before they start putting their money up to make your idea a reality. When you think you have planned enough, plan some more. You will need to get all of your ideas into one complete plan before you seek out the private, angel, or venture capital investors.
After completing your business plan, you will want to ensure that all of your details are spelled out clearly for the investing companies. One of the fatal mistakes that most entrepreneurs make is to hide some details from the investing company. Remember, the more they know, the more they will be able to see the same vision you do.
Next you will need to seek out which investors to contact. Wouldn’t it be easier to cold call from a list that has already been customized to eliminate the investors who do not do business with companies in your industry or stage? Of course it would!
