How Much Should You Raise For Your Startup?

Funding is the lifeblood of any SME or startup, but what is the “correct” amount to raise to build and grow a successful business? Today on BizBytes, we explore this with early stage investor Bikesh Lakhmichand, CEO of Leet Capital.

We also get into:

-How a founder or entrepreneur can assess the value of their business when engaging and negotiating with inventors

-How much funding is an idea worth

-Managing the potential lack of discipline and lack of 'lean-ness' when startups follow the ‘raise as much as you can’ mentality.
