Today, I am going to talk about how to raise money for your new venture. In spite of seemingly negative comments, there is money available for the really worthwhile venture. Also, I will cover some of the issues that will influence your chances of succeeding. This is after you have talked over the idea with friends, hopefully have the product idea fully developed, and have convinced your family that the venture will become the foundation of one of the world's great corporate enterprises.
