Checklist for Securing Venture Capital Funding for Your Business

A Venture Capital (VC) fund invests money and/or technical or managerial expertise into early-stage companies that exhibit high growth potential, in exchange for an equity stake in the business.

The journey to securing VC funding is all about showing that you have a deep understanding of your business, its value proposition and potential for growth and scalability, as well as demonstrating your competence as a founder.

We have developed this checklist as a good starting point to help you decide whether VC funding is a) the right choice for your business, b) achievable for your business, and c) to prepare you for the steps you need to consider in order to secure VC funding.
