The startup challenge: Raising money to make dreams become reality

The startup challenge: Raising money to make dreams become reality | e-commerce & social media | Scoop.it

Finding funding as a startup can be a scavenger hunt, with nuggets of information hidden by bureaucracy and scattered across the Internet.

You’ve got a brilliant, multimillion-dollar business idea and want to start a startup. Great! … Uh, now what?

To steal a joke from a 1998 South Park episode, the void between ideation and value creation often looks like: Phase 1 — Start company. Phase 2 — ?????. Phase 3 — Profit!

How startups develop the second, mystery phase depends on how strong their resolve to raise cash is, how developed their contact network is and how much risk they’re willing to take. Read more: click image or title.

Startups are Risk Bundles · Coding VC

Startups are Risk Bundles · Coding VC | e-commerce & social media | Scoop.it
Startup founders are sometimes surprised when they spend a year or two executing against their roadmap, make a lot of progress, and still have to struggle to raise more capital. Why wouldn't investors be interested in a company if it's much further along than it was last year? Why are the few investors who are interested only willing to invest at a lower valuation?
Unfortunately, all progress is not created equal. Sometimes moving forward gets founders closer to the goal of building a huge, profitable company, but sometimes it shows that they're on the wrong path, or that their goal is unattainable.

Why integrity matters in the startup ecosystem

Why integrity matters in the startup ecosystem | e-commerce & social media | Scoop.it
What if we ran a poll. Since the next round of funding is not so readily available, what should hyper-funded Indian startups focus on? The list of responses will likely include operating profits, unit economics, product differentiation and customer habit. The hyper-funding of 2014 and 2015 ruined all of the above and it is time to go back to the basics. Yet, the Achilles heel for hyper-funded Indian startups might be something else. Something that we least suspect. The carcinogenic effects of hyper-funding have caused a cancer that could eat us hollow and not allow the body to recover to a healthy state. It’s the integrity cancer.
