For founders looking to make an impact on the market, raising funds is difficult as it is vital. In addition to overseeing the efficient operation of a company, pitching investors who will serve as both advisors and financial backers takes time and a considered approach. When one has already asked plenty of friends and family to back their ideas, the need to look beyond existing circles is the only option to truly scale a business.
Sites like Kickstarter and IndieGoGo formed the foundations for startup fundraising as we know it. Currently there are plenty of similar sites where one can get fnding, with platforms catering to every industry and geographical region now available. Having a successful crowdfunding campaign can do more than just providing organizations with ample startup finance.
By showcasing products and services to potential buyers, these platforms have the unique ability to turn potential customers into investors. In exchange for a nominal investment, backers can claim for discounted products from the organizations looking for the startup funding. Earning while testing the viability of a product will assist founders to early recognize the feasibility of their ideas and whether those ideas could potentially enrich human welfare around the world, while ensuring they are offsetting some of the costs. From a founder’s perspective, the best part of this approach is the ability to retain equity, and therefore complete control of the internal trajectory of the company.
Crowdfunding, while useful in many ways, lacks the depth that some startup founders are looking for. Being an early-stage organization, seeking funding may only be a part of the relationship founders are looking for with partnerships. As the business landscape grows both in size and complexity, differentiating one's products and customer base is becoming more important than ever before. Having the guidance on how to deploy the funds is as valuable as the startup finance given, and this is where investors can come into play.
This expertise, however, comes with a price. The years of insight that investors bring to the table means that this startup funding is likely to come at a considerable equity cost. As this new organization receives further funding rounds, growing from a startup to a fully-fledged company, balancing equity becomes a more complicated relationship.
Now, with the launch of the WAHED invest, powered by WAHED Coin, we have a viable third option.
