The Worst Thing You Can Do When Raising Money For Your BusinessNov 21, 2022
If you're raising money for your business, the worst thing you can do is rely on one or a few investors.
This puts them in a position of power and they may not offer the best terms. What if they pull out? It's important to be clear with them and let them know that you have other prospects interested in your business. There's no arrogance in being honest with your investors - they'll understand.
Here are some other reasons why you should not rely on just one /handful of investors to make or break your deal:
- It gives the investors too much power and they may not offer the best terms.
- What if they pull out? You'll be left scrambling to find new investors.
- Having a small number of investors may limit your options and bargaining power.
- It could be more difficult to get favorable terms from just one or a few investors.
- Relying on just a few investors could jeopardize the success of your business deal.
Raising money for your business can be a difficult process, but it's important to remember not to rely on just one or a few investors.
