How A Private Business Angel Can Help You With Your Business
By Entrepreneur Investor Network
If you have a new venture and need help propelling it to the next level, a angel may be able to help. They are available in virtually every country.
How? angels, also called private investors, provide all the tools and resources you need on an ongoing basis to take your to the next level. They also provide start up capital if needed.
So how exactly do they help? There are several ways. One way is that they provide you with the start up capital you may need to get your up and running, which is critical to your success. Lack of start up capital is one of the major reasons 95% of businesses fail in the first year.
Private investors also share with you their wealth of knowledge and skills. They do expect a certain amount of experience on your part, but they can provide you with the advanced expertise you need to learn in order to succeed. Learning such skills as how to negotiate, how to cut expenses without sacrificing quality, and superior marketing techniques, will be an invaluable asset, regardless of the nature of your business.
Another way private investors help is
by sharing their rolodex of contacts. They have spent many years building their list and you should consider it a privilege to have access to it. This list is your gateway to getting more customers, clients and referrals.
The relationships you build could have value for years to come.
Business angels don’t invest in just any however; you must prove to them you have the commitment, desire, and knowledge to succeed. They want to see a solid plan, at least some experience, and a true entrepreneurial spirit. If you start a to ‘test the waters’ or just ‘see how it goes’ you will not attract angels to your business.
Do your research and spend some time with your would-be angel to make sure you can work well together. Remember, this is an investment for them, so they are going to want your to start producing a profit as soon as possible. This is good news for you, since they will do everything in their power to make that happen.
Once your becomes a success with the help of your angel, you will be able to give back to the community and perhaps become an angel yourself!
