Building Relationships with Investors

For The Busy Startup Founder

As an entrepreneur, you need to put your head down and focus on building your company, creating a product that customers want, and getting customers to pay for it. If you do that, eventually the funding will come.

It might take longer than you want it to take, but at least then when it does come, you’ll be ready for it.

The more data points showing positive results with real numbers behind them, the better.

Even better would be customer revenue growth data showing increased sales month over month since starting work with you or using your product/service — but don’t make up numbers here!

The more positive articles out there, the better — as long as they’re credible and accurate.

Make sure you have a great website that has a good design, a lot of useful information for potential customers, and a great-looking video presentation showing what you do and why it’s so great.
