Most people are aware of the benefits of a personal health check and will not think it unusual to have one carried out periodically. It does therefore appear strange that the same people do not carry out a health check on their business. In the same way as an individual will benefit from a personal check so a business will also benefit from an early diagnosis of potential problems. In general the later a problem is identified the more drastic, painful and expensive is the solution to the problem.
Angel Investors are typically much better investors for a long-term business plan that Venture Capitalists, although they do not come usually with the incredible network to help you succeed. Venture Capitalists are more interested in themselves and making money on their investment then what you get out of it or the future of the business with you in it. An angel investor is interested in you, the future of the business and the possibility of making a whole lot of money on their investment. Please consider all this when presenting your business plan to an Angel Investor.
