How to get the capital you need
- Think bigger. Remember that venture capitalists are in the business of making money on scalable ventures.
- Take your heart off your sleeve. If you’re truly devoted to growth, you’ll have to keep your ego and emotions in check.
- Do your homework. Between VC blogs and books, you have plenty of information available to get you started on a great pitch.
- Pitch. Get out there and pitch, even if it’s at a low-stakes meetup where no money is involved."
