Scale Up Capital
“The character of the entrepreneur is what we consider first and foremost as an entry into UnitedSucces”. YES – we really aren’t impressed by the size or profitability of any business – we are focussed on the credibility of the entrepreneur. We know that it is character that keeps entrepreneurs in business.
We also know that when it comes to expanding and seeking investment, the entrepreneur’s reputation and integrity will be the deciding factor. No matter how innovative, unique and profitable your business is, YOUR moral fibre will attract the capital needed for growth of the business.
“Over the past 12 years, I have worked closely with entrepreneurs, particularly women, who are building scalable businesses and need to raise capital. They come to our venture catalyst organization, Springboard Enterprises to raise money. What they learn is to cultivate human capital, the doorway to raising funds.
It seems logical, but it isn’t always evident. Somehow, those who haven’t had experience raising capital think the capital markets are a meritocracy. They are not.
What we all need to recognize is that capital is not based on meritocracy. It’s based on relationships. Yes, the business has to be disruptive or at least scalable to attract venture capital but VC’s invest in PEOPLE first, and businesses second.” Great advice by Kay Koplovitz, widely acclaimed leader in the television and emerging media businesses, successful entrepreneur, seasoned venture capitalist, author and keynote speaker.
Is your character worth investing in?
