I get asked a bit from friends and from people in my network about how to raise money or checking in on is A better than B when it comes to raising money for your startup.
When I came across this article today, it resonated with my usual reply to people – anyway you can that works for you is the right way to raise money.
In other words there is no one way or the perfect way. The goal is to raise money in some reasonable fashion that allows you to reach your goals. Maybe it is an accelerator, maybe an incubator, maybe you bootstrap, maybe you get some from your family or maybe – you take some from a VC.
Point is – only you can determine what works for you and don’t let anyone tell you it is wrong or not the normal way – there is no normal way.
Find a path that makes you happy.
