The Golden Rules of Fundraising Success

2 min read  Here are the basic rules of fundraising that all startups should keep in mind: The Golden Rules of Fundraising Success.

Know your investors

It’s important to know what kind of investor will benefit your business. You want to understand what that investor wants to see in your deal.

Educate your investors

After you pitch to the investor, it’s essential to educate the investor through updates about your deal. It’s often the case the investor is unfamiliar with your application or space.

Build trust

Demonstrate that you can be trusted by showing examples of how you’ve performed in the past.

Respect your investors

Actively show respect to the investor throughout the process. Please do not take the investors’ time and advice for granted. Investors will lose interest and look for other fundraising opportunities if their feedback and advice go unrecognized. 

Focus on current supporters

Make sure you keep your current investor and investor prospects updated on your startup. If you don’t articulate progress in your deal, the investor will most likely not know.
