How Investors Can Help Their Companies
In funding startups, it’s important to choose companies you can help.
If you only write a check and nothing more, then the investing experience will be minimal.
It’s only a return and nothing more.
It’s best to choose startups that you can help by adding value.
Here are some key ways you can add value to your startup investment:
– Help the startup recruit team members by leveraging your network to find qualified candidates.
– Help them raise additional funds from other investors through your network.
– Help them find debt financing for the smaller needs, such as a line of credit, as many startups are not familiar with the available options.
– Make introductions for the CEO to connect with prospects, partners, and others who can help in generating revenue.
– Provide advice on the technology landscape as many investors have a broader view of the market and have a wider range of experiences.
– Save the CEO’s time by pointing out the best options for handling payroll, office leasing, and other basic functions that must be done.
– Help the CEO learn more by networking them with others who are running companies.
– Connect them with the right people to generate word of mouth about the company.
– Finally, help the company with the exit by making introductions to potential acquirers and coaching through the process.
