For an entrepreneur, the decision to partner with a professional financial investor is one of the most critical, and potentially the one with the biggest impact for the future of the business.
Businesses with innovative and proprietary technologies, in fast growing markets, and entrepreneurs with the ambition to build market leading companies, should raise venture capital financing and access the depth of experience, contacts, support and focus that comes with the money.
Yet venture capital does not work for every entrepreneur. Life-style businesses, entrepreneurs with local or modest ambition, or who are uncomfortable with sharing the equity of the company, should not approach venture capital funds, but perhaps ought to consider other more appropriate forms of financing.
