How to Find Investor Funding with Lauren Flanagan Part 1
When you’re just launching a new startup company, one of the first things many entrepreneurs begin to think about is how to find funding from investors and financial partners. But, the problem of getting a “yes” from investors often arises due to a few key components that entrepreneurs have mistakenly overlooked.
My guest today is Lauren Flanagan, Founder and Managing Director of Belle Capital USA. She is also the CEO of a strategic advisory firm called SCIO Corp, a company that helps early stage companies prepare to scale, raise capital, and achieve successful exits. I’ve known Lauren for a little over a year and she is filled with knowledge, insight, and understanding of the complexities within the investing industry, as well as the challenges that many startup businesses and entrepreneurs face when searching for outside funding to take their business to the next level.
Lauren joins me on the show today to share her knowledge and insight about some of the key components you should consider before presenting your business or product idea to potential investors, why not all businesses need outside funding, and why building a competent team around your idea is a critical part of showing investors the value of your proposition.

How to Publish
It’s never been easier to publish a book than it is today. In the past, the primary way to get published was to find and pitch your book idea to a publishing house or start your own publishing company. Although publishing houses are still a viable option to get your book published today, the internet has made it incredibly easy to get published without the need of a major publisher assisting you.
