Mark Roman, author and Founding Partner of Denovo Advisors joins me on this Venture Capital Expert Insights segment to discuss keys to success, pitfalls to avoid, and books he has authored and co-authored. He discusses advice such as:
– Don’t fall in love with the process of raising capital
– Once you get an investment check, that is the starting point and not the end
– Check your ego at the door
– Don’t treat your investor like the enemy
– they want you to be highly successful
– Keep looking forward, don’t look back
– Don’t think you know it all
– look for help and advice
Please check out Mark’s book “Conquering the Boundaries of Friendship”, keep an eye out for his co-authored book with @Greg Johnson “Securing Financing for Founders and Entrepreneurs” that is in the works, and his upcoming book release titled “You’re Cured – The Definitive Guide to the Healing Process for Patients and Caregivers”.

You probably know this, but executives have changed the way they buy and it is even more true after the 2020 pandemic. I have worked with sales representatives, even within the last year, that still believe you need to go somewhere with donuts, coffee, and a smile.
If your sales approach is not aligned with the changing of the times, the executive will likely find a solution from a different provider.
