Cash flow is the lifeblood of business. Funding your startup and increasing investment opportunities is often among the greatest challenges an entrepreneur faces. “Entering the Field” by "placing your skin-in-the-game” shows commitment to your ideas and begins to gain the interest of investors. Unfortunately, “sweat equity” can only carry a company so far while awaiting startup progress. Bootstrapping limitations can stifle the growth of the company awaiting sufficient cash flow and equity to continue the founder’s vision. Securing equity investment is a long effort (and also requires substantial self-funding). Opening your funding exploration avenues to alternative, intermediate paths can keep the effort and team intact. SBIR, BAA, corporate partner project funding, and even having your team take on project work for others, can help you bridge the financial gaps.
Mike Collins of Collins Robotics and Seahawk Solutions will introduce you to his vision for Collins Robotics and how he is using various funding options to make his vision come to fruition.
