Raising funding is a complex process that few understands as they are often doing it for the first time. I would say about 90% of people I see present to angels just “don’t get it”. They do not understand what outside investors need to see to invest. The course above gives the foundational fundamentals that ALL investors want to see.
Developing a company that has a higher valuation can be the difference between owning < 15% (average exit ownership of founders) and 50%+ like Mike Dell, Bill Gates and Elon Musk. Bootstrapping, friends and family investment, then angels is the classic path, but there are over 40 other categories of investment funds that can be tapped into which represent more than 100X what VCs and angels invest.
Pitch book just released a full report on this. You can get it at their site.
I attach one key page.
I just finished a free webinar called How to Raise Millions for Any Company.
