Best Practices for Startups Raising Funding
Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
Raising funding is difficult. Here are some best practices for startups raising their next round:
Investors are busy, so organize your fundraise around their schedule, not yours.
Focus on investors who fund your stage and type of startup.
Provide updates about your business and progress, and be proactive about it.
Highlight the success of the business and not your personal success.
Accept feedback and consider it carefully.
Never talk negatively about an investor as the community is small and word travels fast.
Focus on building a relationship with the investor first.
Do not take rejection personally; it’s part of the game.
Treat people with respect at all times.
Be clear with the investor about your expectations, as it will ultimately come out.
