In today’s episode, Ray and Nigel discuss how to raise money and the obstacles you may need to overcome to secure investments. The hosts also delve into the many messages they’ve received and answer some of the most frequently asked questions by the How To Make Money community. KEY TAKEAWAYS The minimum and maximum figures an Angel will invest depends on the business, and three key factors; you, your deal and what the Angel’s position is. Larger investments don’t happen quickly. Even crowd-funding, which appears on the surface to be a rapid solution, can take months of preparation. Ensuring compliance and promoting the project takes time. Tempting investors with all the information they need beforehand means that when it goes live, they are ready to jump in quickly. The cost of cash depends on the security of the investment among other factors, such as risk, projected returns and length of time. The Angels Den deals mainly in Sterling as their investors are predominantly UK based To secure investment, it helps to do a lot of groundwork and also work closely with the solicitors and banks that will be handling your business. It’s been known to cause problems when large amounts of money suddenly appear in accounts, so it is vital to build and maintain those relationships, so that the Know Your Client (KYC) model that they follow works in practice. Keep them informed at every stage of your project. BEST MOMENTS “If it’s your first deal, bank on it taking two or three times longer than you think it will, but previous success accelerates future deals” “When Crowd Funding goes live, there’s already been a lot of work done behind the scenes with promotion through Social Media and email campaigns, along with a lot of compliance.” “First timers will have to go through a lot of hoops to tick all the boxes for solicitors to take them on as clients.” “Keep your bank informed from conception of the idea, all the way through. Listen to Episode #020 where we covered High Street banks.” “Learn more about the CREST model [touched on in this episode] by listening to Episode #007.” VALUABLE RESOURCES https://www.angelsden.com/en-gb/events/ http://howtoraisemoney.co.uk/ For other podcast episodes mentioned: http://howtoraisemoney.co.uk/category/podcast/ ABOUT THE HOSTS Ray McLennan is a keynote public speaker and former corporate solicitor who has many years of experience owning and operating a variety of businesses in the UK and Ireland.
