As a startup and entrepreneur, you have to deal with many challenges: If you meet a consumer need, does the product live up to the desired quality, what competitors with similar products should you deal with and how?
Once you have mastered the initial exercises and reached a “Proof of Concept”, comes the “Proof of Business”: How do we create growth and how do we finance the business project?
There are many buzzwords and opportunities. “Soft money” in the form of grant pools for development and innovation is fine and grateful in the first phase. “Family and friends” can also be an option. Or crowd-funding.
Eventually we come to “hard money” in the form of loan and equity. Here the demands of the outside world on reporting and progress are rising. One can quickly lose sight of it.
It is crucial that you acquire knowledge and expertise at the right time. If you are not ready with your business plan when you meet the Growth Fund or another lender, you will not be invited next time.
