angels and VC identification
grant application process
A typical Startup will go through several stages of funding before going public, and this is where things usually get difficult for most entrepreneurs.
Are you prepared for researching and applying for grants? Do you know that you can approach friends and family for pre-seeding your business?
Getting funded is not as simple or as pleasant as developing your product. Dealing with venture capitalists and angels in the wrong way can hinder your opportunities.
Are you prepared to deal with all the hassle of a merger or an acquisition? Do you know the right doors to knock for an IPO?
Moreover, instead of focusing on the area you excel, you divert time and valuable resources from developing your product and increasing traction. Invariably, this process drains all your energy.
