Most Motivated Investor Candidates

Overcoming the Top Challenges to Raising Capital

In raising funding, the best strategy is to raise funding from investor candidates who are the most motivated. These investor candidates need your organization to succeed in order to achieve their respective missions. In effect, you are the missing ingredient in a recipe for success. When my capital campaigns determine that this situation exists, I refer to these investor candidates as “Someone that loves you more than you love yourself.” Investor candidates no longer look at you as making an investment, but as placing an order for a needed ingredient. If they do not have funding to invest, they will work to arrange that funding. When you compare the level of motivation of this investor candidate with the far lower, sometimes questionable motivation of other candidates, it is common sense to commence the capital campaign with a pitch to these targeted candidates. Although other investor candidates may invest, why take the extra time and expense with the risk that they may not invest?
