The title of this post is a bit misleading because there is no such thing as a capital raising checklist! Why? Because there is an infinite number of ways to raise capital. Each capital raising campaign is more like a work of art than a regimented cookie cutter process.
I was on a call today with some of my group coaching clients and here are some of their insights on this topic:
- It’s more important to clarify our own intentions than to worry about what investors will think because once we have that level of clarity we can tell our story to other people and they will be inspired to join us
- We’re making our own adventure
- Everyone is doing it differently and we’re all right
- When I started this process my perception was that there is one right way but there isn’t – it’s a living experience that you’re going though as you bring your heart out into the world
- We are in charge!
I almost cried when I heard them say these things because I believe the world would be a radically better place if more mission-driven entrepreneurs felt this way.
Please spread the word that it is absolutely possible to raise funds from investors on your own terms! If you’d like to talk to me about your strategy, click here to apply for a capital raising strategy session.
