Stream 1
You’re an entrepreneur with idea. You’re working on what initial market might be, and technology exploration. You’ve established your company’s value proposition and you’re testing ideas and technologies, developing a proof of concept and identifying your best customers. You may have started to work on your financials and valuation, and your funding may be coming from friends and family at this point.
Stream 2
You’ve established your business model, which means you know how your company will generate revenue. You’ve created a minimum viable product (MVP) and are testing your go-to-market strategy. By now you’re starting to or are already gaining market traction. You’ve created demand for your product or service and you’re able to forecast revenue based on actual figures. This is the time to start pursuing early stage venture capital, angel funding and to start working with an accelerator.
Stream 3
You have undoubtedly validated your product or service and the market in which it sits. You’re seeing significant customer growth and you’ve established a management team to help you manage it. Now is the time to start pursuing a second round of funding and later-stage investment.
