¬† It’s the dream, right – landing an angel investor who believes in your business so much that they’ll just give you money to make it happen? But angel investors are not the answer for everyone. In fact, for many businesses, they’re start up suicide. Case in point: I got a call from a client this weekend; she’d just run into a friend who heard about her new business idea. “You might not realize this,” said the friend. “But my sister is a managing director for one of the largest female-lead angel investing groups in the country. She’s looking for projects just like this one. Send me your business plan when you’re done and I can guarantee you a meeting.” My client was over the moon. She’s been developing a small, non-profit publishing house to provide art, music, and books that promote a minority group and specific social causes. “This could be HUGE!” she insisted. It could. But it would also require her to completely alter her vision for the company and give up control. In this video, I explain why some companies should jump on investor funds – and others like my client should give them a pass.
