Capital Raising

Venture capitalists and angel investors often require a significant equity interest and involvement in your new business in exchange for providing the much needed funds to progress the venture. This can severely limit your control and direction of the business.

Some investors will want to be active in the business. Others passive adopting a ‘silent’ investor role. There are benefits to both approaches depending on your own skill set, access to external resources, business structure and objectives.

Finding the right investors is important in order to maintain the balance between ownership, control and direction of your business.
