What type of investor are you looking for?  What type of investors would be interested in you?  What are investors investment criteria likely to be?  What is investor sentiment like generally and in your target sector? What will excite them? What will switch them off? Is Crowdfunding an option? As these and other questions are answered, so you can plan a targeted fund raising campaign with confidence. 


Executing a Successful Fund Raise
