Podcast Overview

Do you know that a large number of small businesses put them out of operation due to lack of funding?

According to an article in Investopedia.com, the lack of funding is among the four most common reasons why a small business fails. (Other reasons include inadequate management, business plan and infrastructure issues, and marketing mishaps).

Funding shortfalls happen when the working capital and operation costs outweigh your sales revenue, forcing you to lay off employees, or worse, close your business.

To prevent your business from failing due to lack of funds, we have invited Terri Hanson Mead, an active angel investor and the President of Solutions 2 Projects, to share with us on how to pitch to investors and get the funds needed for your biz.
