    How many of you are running or planning to start your own business...??

    I know many of you have thought about this.... Well I am one of you. Thinking of starting my business, but confused about funding. I have read a lot about investors pros and cons...

    Can you please share your experiences with investors..... are they really proved to be that effective?


    Thank you,

    Maine

    What is your expectation of an investor, exactly?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    I really don't understand this question .... "are they really proved to be that effective"

    Investors invest capital into your business .........If you blow the money then no they are not effective but
    If you use the money effectively to grow your business then yes they are effective !!

    I would also like to know. An investor should be an ally who is funding your business. You may get lucky and also get an investor who could add value by giving advice and direction to your business.
    You do not seem to be on the same wavelength.
    Excellence is not a skill; its an attitude...

    Take investment capital from somebody who has a real interest in YOUR business, not just a ROI
