Any entrepreneurs will tell you that raising funding is no easy feat. It can be a long, challenging process. Finding the right mix of investors and investments is key. How do you get ready to raise capital? How do you find potential investors...and persuade them to invest? What do investors really care about? And how can the right investments propel your company from growth to exit?
