Exit valuations achieved for entrepreneurs are higher when the deal has a venture capital investor working with you.
There are many reasons why venture capital is the best type of investment to grow a business. However, you have to be prepared as raising venture capital needs more than a good business plan. It requires you to have planned your business. Further that, growth has to be sufficient to give the sort of investment returns that venture capital and other risk investors want.
Other than a good product/idea you need a proven management team, a sustainable and accessible market and it also helps if you have made at least some progress at testing or selling to customers, even if its a new business idea and not yet a business. In other words some traction and or a plan that proves its possible!
