Turning initial investor meetings into meaningful, lasting relationships through networking, vetting, and blending digital with personal engagement.
Connecting with potential investors is crucial if you want your startup to succeed. But turning an initial meeting into a meaningful relationship takes finesse. As someone who has worked in investment banking and crowdfunding, I've seen many entrepreneurs struggle to build an authentic rapport with investors.
That's why understanding the "engagement equation" is crucial for entrepreneurs. If you can lay the groundwork for trust and chemistry, you have a much better chance of securing the capital you need to grow your business.
