Financing Startup Companies: Creative Catalyst and Master Marketer to Attract Investors
As a creative catalyst helping entrepreneurial companies engineer breakthroughs and master marketer captivating capital through properly presenting ideas to achieve buy-in, I understand how to overcome the challenges start-up companies face when pursuing venture capital.
Although predictable businesses looking for capital may have an easier time finding funding when they fit into a category that potential investors understand, such is not always the case as investors are looking for breakthrough ideas and something new to take to market. Besides the proverbial "same old same old" is downright boring isn't it?
Investors want to be inspired with passion, purpose and the pursuit of something worthwhile with revolutionary potential.
Most business owners can see their desirable destination, but have difficulty articulating, communicating and presenting what it is they are envisioning and desiring to pursue.
Hence an articulate creative catalyst is needed to bridge the gaps and build investor buy-in to secure the capital necessary to launch and sustain the entrepreneurial venture.
Otherwise the business idea shall be aborted before it ever leaves the spiritual womb of he who envisioned it in the first place.
Remember creating new industries means creating jobs - which both the public governmental and private business sectors applaud and embrace in tough economic times.
Yet revolutionary ideas must be communicated and articulated in a brilliant fashion to provide illuminating insights or revelation knowledge to those providing the funding. Otherwise the ideas will lack appeal, passion and the necessary intangible pull to get investors salivating and wanting to pony up the funds for your company.
Highlighting your strengths, uniquenesses and company assets takes skill, tact, insight and wisdom to overcome obstacles and resistance at the negotiating table.
Therefore it pays to invest in and hire strategic help to properly frame and present your company's opportunities to investors before looking for cash and coming out of the oven half baked.
Remember your first impression will not be forgotten and your last impression is your lasting impression.
Plan your work and work your plan.
