An influx venture capital is a celebrated milestone for many startups, but there are also risks to consider. So be smart about how you raise money — there are many resources worth pursuing before seeking out investors, and people to help you find them.
That’s one takeaway from the Tomorrow Toolkit, an ebook on building a company that Technical.ly produced last year with Comcast NBCUniversal.
The 20,000-word, 20-chapter ebook was recently updated, sharing strategies for starting and scaling a young company. It’s not just about the tech that is changing businesses, but also the highly-collaborative environment.
The ebook shares ideas from entrepreneurs from Denver to Delaware, and Miami to Detroit. It also features a bunch of Baltimore founders including:
- Staq cofounder Mike Subelsky, who imparts wisdom on starting a company with a cofounder;
- Laurin Hodge, cofounder of Mission: Launch, who discusses how to incorporate a social mission into your company;
- Digital marketing strategist Len Markidan takes this reporter to school on the importance of building revenue from day one, and getting out to discover the marketplace.
- In a chapter on building culture, SmartLogic shares a unique approach to an all-team meeting.
