At Dragon Argent, more and more of our clients are coming to us asking for help with their investment strategy. We work with entrepreneurs who are aiming to solve big problems. When they get it right, they need to scale fast, and this often requires equity investment.
Venture capital is sometimes held up as an end in of itself for entrepreneurs. This is problematic for several reasons, not least because VC funding is only designed for businesses that meet specific criteria. Understanding that criteria and why it exists before setting VC investment as a goal is critical for the long-term prospects of a start-up because the process can be time consuming, intensive, frustrating, and confusing.
For businesses that fit the VC model however, executing a successful investment round can be the key to scale. In Dragon Argent’s Demystifying Venture Capital Whitepaper, you’ll receive clear, pragmatic guidance how the VC business model operates and the 8-step process of raising investment to give you the tools to navigate any future fundraise successfully.
