Last week I shared a number of reasons why you should share the fundraising for your care whether you are a founder or a new employee. In the Compilation episode, we talked about why it's a bad idea to approach investors when you have an idea:
This week we will continue our theme and focus on what drives us to think that we need to increase capital, such as competition that is heated, the belief that the business will stop growing, or that the idea we pursue is not really BIG enough. . We will also immerse ourselves in the mechanics of investing talking about the nuances of an angel versus a venture capitalist, and why it is important to look for investors who have knowledge of their marketing or industry.
Erica Brescia came back to help us with this episode. Erica the COO and co-founder of Bitnami. Recently, Erica also joined XFactor Ventures as an investment partner: XFactor is an early-stage investment firm that seeks to fund founders and mixed teams.
Erica is founder and investor, and after sitting on both sides of the table, she knows how to dispel the facts of fiction!
By watching today's episode you will learn:
– Why is Erica and her partners at XFactor putting their money in their hands and are they starting a fund to invest in founding women and mixed teams?
– What the investment partners of XFactor and other angels are looking for against venture capitalists, and how much they are willing to invest
– Why competitors will come and go, and can not allow their actions to intimidate or direct their business objectives
– Why only you, as a founder, can decide when is the right time to increase your business?
