Crack the Funding Code [audio] with Judy Robinett

When it comes to funding; why is it that sometimes a company that seems fairly average beats out a far superior one?…What’s the secret?

you know… The saying; it’s not what you know, it’s who you know. But maybe in the world of “start-up” financing it’s both.

So often smart founders with compelling business models fail due to a lack of funding. But what if you had guidance from the kind of person who has the ear of the top venture capitalist you’d want to reach… what would you want to know? Wouldn’t you want to know how to grab — and keep! — investor attention?
