Example text

Therefore you need to bring in professional management early enough. Also, because it takes usually at least six months until you have found talented management. Bringing on a good executive early is one of those decisions in the early stage which will help you to avoid many problems on the way. And when you bring in experienced management, you really will have to give up control. It will not be simply that they are running it, and you teil them what to do. Y ou have to give up control because they are never going to accept a job if you are always looking over their shoulder.

But the fact is that we did not get them to make the decision about the architecture in six months. (Nimish Shah, Sentient Networks) Changing customer behavior is not easy because the problems that your product is addressing did not just spring into existence yesterday. Your customers have been dealing with them one way or another for a while, and you rnust compete with whatever method they are currently using. The hardest sell may be when they are currently doing nothing. After all, doing nothing does not require writing checks, and whatever you are offering to them probably does.

Therefore financing takes place in rounds. Typically you have an initial seed round which allows you to prove the technology by building a prototype. For the next round you need to have achieved the following milestone for instance: You need to have completed the product, you need to have three beta customers that say that it is a great idea and that they will buy it, you need to have two officers in the company, and you need to have established the business model that shows how the company can make money and how the investors will get paid.
