From Zero to Funded: What Do You Need To Get Seed/Angel Investment

Entrepreneurs and the businesses they are starting have evolved. Start-ups today don’t need to build a manufacturing plant to start a business. They need less money to build a product prototype, prove that it works, prove there is a market for their product and show a potentially profitable business model before scaling the business.

What will make the lives of entrepreneurs seeking funding easier?

An angel investor who understands the experimental nature of the idea, believes in the business focus, the model, the team to execute the plan and pivot where needed and an entrepreneur to focus on building an organization in today’s environment addressing a real customer need in a market of decent size while carrying out the business vision.

Whether you’re a businessperson with a great concept or an entrepreneur getting ready to raise seed investment for your company, from Zero to Funded will offer you the following:

How to create an investor-friendly financial model for your business
Angel investor vs a VC, the differences and merits
What goes on behind the scenes when angel, seed or VC investors
contemplate whether or not to fund a venture
How to work with your investors and what to expect after they invest
