Launch, Grow, Sell, Acquire
There is a lot to consider during and after raising startup/growth capital. It’s an exiting time for your business, but there are many potential pitfalls ahead. Different capital mechanisms—crowdfunding, bank loans, investment—will influence your business in different ways. Your investors/lenders will have expectations for the growth of your business, and your company will experience growing pains. Moving into a new space, hiring new people, and purchasing new infrastructure will all hugely affect how you operate on a day-to-day basis. You’ll need to think far into the future when deciding on your path to scaling.
