How Much Should You Raise For Your Startup?

How Much Should You Raise For Your Startup?

Funding is the lifeblood of any SME or startup, but what is the “correct” amount to raise to build and grow a successful business? Today on BizBytes, we explore this with early stage investor Bikesh Lakhmichand, CEO of Leet Capital.

We also get into:

-How a founder or entrepreneur can assess the value of their business when engaging and negotiating with inventors

-How much funding is an idea worth

-Managing the potential lack of discipline and lack of 'lean-ness' when startups follow the ‘raise as much as you can’ mentality.
