KEY TAKEAWAYS Just about everyone who you see on TV or present themselves as successful entrepreneurs have been through tough times surrounding finance and financial history. Even Richard Branson has famously been involved with companies that have been through receivership and bankruptcy. Ensure you are always honest and make your investors, angels, dragons and whales aware of your background, how you got there and remind them of how you will make them money. If you’ve had receivership or bankruptcy against you in the past will it hurt your chances of securing investment? The short answer is No. Depending on the business or investment opportunity investor may invest in you, as the investor and crucial to the success of the deal. Or they may be investing solely in the proposed opportunity and the product or service the company is creating, and therefore your personal history is less relevant. Past mistakes can be dealt with and forgiven. Remember that everyone has at some point had struggles financial. You just need to make sure that your investment opportunity offers an attractive security agreement. Receivership: In law, receivership is a situation in which an institution or enterprise is held by a receiver—a person "placed in the custodial responsibility for the property of others, including tangible and intangible assets and rights"—especially in cases where a company cannot meet financial obligations or enters bankruptcy. Bankruptcy: The legal status of a person or other entity that cannot repay debts to creditors. In most jurisdictions, bankruptcy is imposed by a court order, often initiated by the debtor.
