If you've ever wondered how companies like Twitter, Facebook, Instagram or Uber were funded and what the process involves to attract and gain investor funding, please consider reading my TechZulu article since I review four investor panels which I attended at the wonderful Silicon Beach Fest recently held in Santa Monica, CA.
In addition to those investors, I also share the insights I gained from listening to Chris Saca and other influentials within this space.
Here's the introduction to pique your interest:
It can be a confusing world to seek funding when you’re just starting out and Silicon Beach Fest (#SBF) was a great place to learn what investors are looking for, meet investors of all levels in a collaborative environment, network with like-minded entrepreneurs, and develop relationships to further your dream and business.
Angel Investors look for very different things than more advanced VC’s who’ve been investing for years, who are different still from those who are just getting into the investing world. The bottom line though, is they want to believe in your capability to pull off whatever they’re investing in. It’s not so much about your product, concept or business, but you personally.
