A Vital Book For All Entrepreneurs.
It Reveals How To Raise The Funds You Need.
If you are trying to raise capital for your company or venture, see if you can answer the following questions:
You need $500,000. What’s your financing strategy and which source(s) of funds will you target?
When you give a potential investor your Executive Summary, which items will they screen first?
- Name three ”Deal Killers” that will guarantee you’ll fail and that all potential investors will say: “Thanks. No Interest.”?
- What’s the major differences between Angels and Venture Capital firms?
- How can you create a great “valuation” for your deal?
If you’re the average entrepreneur you have no experience raising capital. You proceed poorly and make mistakes, many based on bad information from equally inexperienced “friends”. Without knowing it, you’re behaving inappropriately for the game you’ve chosen. Your target audiences of Angels, VC’s, PE’s and Merchant Banks (very sophisticated folks) totally ignore your amateur efforts as if you were speaking Swahili.
It’s similar to deciding you want to be a professional poker player, flying to Las Vegas and sitting at a Texas Hold’em table – without knowing the rules of the game, or even if “two-pair” beats a flush. You quickly watch all your chips disappear.

Entrepreneurs usually have limited funds and most ignore the most basic preparation required. Even worse, many have totally unrealistic views of financial sources and often believe (insanely) that they will get funding regardless of how shoddy their presentations.
I like entrepreneurs. I thought I’d try to help these folks with their dreams. I took off for a few months and wrote: How To Raise Money, Insider Edition. It is a straight, bare-bones, “get results/get the money” approach. This e-book is written in a “no-nonsense” style. Everything is based on hard-earned experiences from the real, business world. There’s not a wisp of any input from graduate school academicians who are long in exotic theories, but have never raised a dime in funding nor met a payroll.
My target reader is the bright entrepreneur that might have just started off in the wrong direction … yet, is determined to succeed. They are willing to learn from others; assimilate that knowledge; and, then fully prepare for the daunting task of launching and controlling a winning venture and conquer their quest for financing.
Such people usually are able (and eager) to absorb knowledge. They learn that when trying to raise money, they’ve begun a search that is difficult and frustrating … and, that only a complete idiot would believe that they can succeed without a slick, professional, all-out effort. They soon mature; have no intention of mimicking the mistakes of other, unsophisticated capital seekers; and, are clever enough to position themselves and their businesses as being of the highest priority to all potential investors. Learning from the “people that have been there” works … and, all this for less than $10.00!!
GREAT FOR ALL ENTREPRENEURS!
How To Raise Money, Insider Edition covers everything relating to venture finance from: how the funding sources really work; creating your Financing Strategy; writing a killer Business Plan; creative ways to market; selling your ideas; and, … a lot more.
In fact, one of our Clients who purchased and read our book sent us an email adding that this was “the perfect Xmas gift” for all entrepreneurs. We thanked him for the idea and we reduced the price to enable more people to read themselves … or, elect to give this as a present to all their friends that want to become entrepreneurs. Everybody liked the lower price, so we’ll keep it there … but, only for a litle while. (Click: How To Raise Money, Insider Edition )
