Startup Funding FAQs
Why does a startup need funding?
It is a well known fact that the majority of startups fails, and the number one cited reason for failure is that they run out of cash and are unable to secure further funding. It appears from the get go that the odds are already stacked against you.
Despite this, many founders still tend to underestimate the time and work that goes into successfully pitching a business. There is no way around it – fundraising is brutal. The reality is that investors do not think like you, and while we can see the investment potential in your business, this on its own is rarely enough.
Why is a funding consultant important?
The general rule is that you should start raising 6 – 9 months before you anticipate needing funding. Fundraising is such a highly specialised skill that many corporations hire specifically for those roles. We have found that founders with limited fundraising expertise often get stuck on the fundraising process. This becomes expensive in the long run and costs startups a great deal of growth momentum during that period.
Finding the right investor earlier pays off in the long run. Even if, after the 6 month process, you are able to secure an investor, there is a limited amount of runway before the process needs to start again. Getting it right the first time will ensure that your investors can become strategic partners who work alongside you to grow your business. We do the work to get you to that point, and with a funding consultant’s help, not only will your time be freed up to put your focus where it is needed most – in your business – but you will get a better deal, faster.
As startup fundraising consultants, what funding rounds do you help with?
We work with founders to help them raise funding for seed stage and series B. We do this by designing a comprehensive investment strategy, introducing relevant investors, and executing successful funding campaigns. Engaging a startup fundraising consultant for startups is recommended at all funding stages.
