MBA1947 When to Secure Funding for Your Business + Free Ride Friday

Rule #1: your idea alone won’t get you funding.

Whether you’re looking for an angel investor, a bank loan, or a favor from a wealthy uncle, getting outside funding takes strategy.

Today, we discuss how to make sure you’re already in the best position to secure funding, before you even try. By laying the groundwork first, you can set your pitch up to succeed. Time the ask right, and you’re much more likely to get the answer you want. Click Play!
