Your Investor Readiness Score

CONGRATULATIONS FOUNDER!

For taking this small, but important step to climbing the
ultimate mountain in your tech startup career.

What your Score Tells You

Raising the capital you need to build your dream beyond the next six months is the ultimate business adventure. And you are doing what any good mountain climber would do. You are taking stock of your equipment, your supplies, and your options so you can survive the danger zone. That means being truly focused and committed.

It means assessing where you can cut costs to extend your runway longer-term and thinking about obligations to third-party creditors. The worst thing you can do on your journey up a mountain is be ill-equipped or short on the supplies you need. Plan early, and you’ll be able to avoid a serious fall six months further up the hill. What does that mean? Well, as a tech startup, you probably know that it’s sometimes necessary to develop the product for a year or more before generating revenue.

That means you (and your team) may need to bootstrap and/or work for less during the “pre-revenue” development stage – but in the end, you’re going to need outside funding. With such a short runway, you’re going to need help with that.

 

So That's Exactly What I Am Going To Do With You Right Now

I’m going to go over the questions you just answered, and what your answers mean to you on your tech startup journey up the mountain beyond six months.

Once you finish watching the video I will give you a complete rundown of how you can get up that mountain and save time and precious resources doing it.

Question #1

Founder, Do You Understand Your Investment Options?

Raising outside capital for your business requires a deep understanding of the different types of capital available to you, from equity investments to convertible debt, revenue backed notes, factoring, or plain old bank financing.

Know your venture finance options

Quite frankly, it’s hard to be honest about not knowing what you don’t know, and that’s where you are right now. You haven’t yet understood the wide range of venture finance options available, and you’re not sure if you need third-party financing anyway. Fair enough. Lots of entrepreneurs, indeed most businesses, never raise capital from third parties. If you can achieve your business goals and objectives without it, that’s super.  On the other hand, more capital could be the key to investing in innovation and growing faster. Did you know that there are at least 11 different types of funding available and that one, or more, of these could be ideal for you? Knowledge is power, as they say, and it could also mean more money if you know your options

Question #2

Getting Your Tech Startup Investment Ready

Raising money from outside investors requires you to have your ‘house in order’ legally and financially. From your organizational charter documents to agreements among co-founders, employees, consultants, key stakeholders, and outside funding sources. 

Know what you don’t know

OK, so you haven’t yet thought about securing more money for your business, but you’ve done the assessment and you’re here reading this, so  raising money may be in your future. Or let’s think of it another way: might you want to sell your business one day? Because “investment readiness” is very similar to “acquisition readiness” – if your business is attractive to investors, it will also be attractive to buyers. For this reason, it’s a good idea to understand the venture finance ecosystem and the language that it uses. Knowing what you don’t know about the eleven basic sources of funding puts you in a position of knowledge, and therefore of greater power.

Question #3

Getting Your Investment Offer Ready

To raise money, you have to have a compelling offer. Once you have your house in order, you can properly value and design an offer for investment in your company that will attract your ideal type of funding source.

Get the essential knowledge

You mentioned that you are not yet ready to create a venture finance offer. That’s fine. But are you curious about what kind of offers other entrepreneurs like you, your peers or your competitors typically create? What does it look like and how can you maximize your chances of success? What materials and approaches are necessary? Even if you don’t need to know now, it will be useful later.

Question #4

Your Fundraising Mindset

Raising money is like climbing a mountain. It takes a lot of time, effort, and careful maneuvering with the help of a trusted guide and advisor. You will spend countless hours looking for, meeting with, and trying to close investors on your offer. 

Plan long term

A successful venture finance plan can take six months to a year, or even more, to plan and execute. If you’re not ready to make venture finance one of your top three priorities this year, maybe it’s time to at least start thinking about future financing opportunities next year. Where should you start? The first step is understanding what the full journey looks like, the knowledge you need and the steps you need to take. Are you aware of all of the funding options available? It’s time to take some tentative steps.
