In recent years something strange has happened in the start-up world, the idea that you have to have an investor to build your business started to proliferate. Raising funding and venture capital became glamorized.
Along the way, founders started giving up their own power to grow their business, making raising funding a pre-requisite instead.
And “sales” became a dirty word that was something visionary founders shouldn’t bother doing.
Only a tiny percentage of businesses will ever raise venture capital, and that percentage is even smaller for women and minorities. Many companies needlessly die on the vine with this mentality, and could avoid countless painful mistakes and hardships if they adopted a different mindset.
