THEY INVEST IN PEOPLE, NOT JUST TECHNOLOGY
Investors aren’t just buying new technology. They are betting on the people behind it.
Do they inspire confidence? Are they savvy? Professional?Do they project maturity?
Have the crafted a sound plan? Can they the communciate the vision clearly? Can they tell a compelling story?
Startups are judged on what they say and how well they can say it.

THE ALL TOO COMMON CHICKEN-AND-EGG
The all-too-common dilemma: Money. It is precisely the thing that startups don’t have that ihey need in order to raise the additional money they don’t have. Sort of chicken-and-egg.
With budgets tight, acquiring skills to set a startup apart and give it a better chance capturing attention and investments is too often back-burnered. But without those skills, the likelihood of raising money is dimmed.
By making courses affordable, streamlined, and just-in-time, New Venture Institute allows savvy entrepreneurs to acquire the tools they need, when they need them. Dollars invested to ensure a better path to success.
Yes, the chicken-and-egg. But remember, too many really good eggs never get the chance to grow up and become chickens and many chickens never survive long enough to produce eggs.
