Being open and transparent are probably the two most important things that businesses and owners need to be today. If you’re looking to raise a round of capital, help us to help you better by being brutally honest and upfront about your current and future positions.
I’ve spent the majority of my professional life building financial models for businesses, and I relate to the fact that making decisions based on projections can be really tough.
Never raise more capital than you need. It may look and sound good in the press and over conversations, but financial practicality should be the goal at the end of the day; not too little, but not too much either.
Finance is easier than you think. I believe a little effort on our part will go a long way to helping businesses understand the different aspects of it, to give them the edge and knowledge they need.
The tide to success has never been more challenging, but then again, smooth seas never made good sailors. I should know, I used to sail competitively on a national level.
