Where is your capital coming from?

For early stage startups, sometimes this question is far more important than having capital (if you want your business to scale successfully over the longer term).

While having capital for your startup is fundamental, knowing whether the capital is coming from the right place (whether it’s from angel investors or venture capitalists) will help ensure your business growth in the right total addressable market.

While some founders may not have the luxury of time as they navigate how to raise capital for their business, it’s important they at least follow this process if they want to get the most return for their business investment.
