Hello, this is Hall T. Martin with the Startup Funding Espresso -- your daily shot of startup funding and investing.
In launching your startup, look for a trigger that indicates when to start a fundraise campaign.
Common triggers include:
In short, investors look at sales, team, product, and fundraise as the four core areas for progress.
When you achieve a milestone in one or more of these areas, then it’s a trigger to consider launching a fundraise campaign.
In approaching an investor you should have a milestone completed AND a milestone to accomplish with the funds to be raised.
Let’s go startup something today.
