My partner and I have researched a web-site now for five years and will be bringing it to market. It is a site
not unlike care.com or 1800 Dentist, but speaks to an an entirely different universe. What we have done is a reference-directory site that effects 14 million Americans each and every year. The professionals who make a living in this space number over 5 million highly educated people. I have been approached on numerous occasions by " Angel Investors ' Who wanted to invest from day 1.
I have turned them down, only because I wanted to get the site created, graphics, and listings loaded and ready. Now we are ready......Should I speak with someone who can get to the next level, in operations, and marketing ? There is no other site like this on the planet...
Congratulations on all that you have accomplished.
Whether you should seek investment capital depends upon many factors- including your own personal wishes.
Generally, one seeks capital to accelerate the growth/ development of the business. Before deciding, I would examine the impact and risk of growing the company organically.
