Online Tool Tells If You're Ready For Funding | Entrepreneur
Even if you aren't seeking private capital, you can take an online survey to determine whether your company is well positioned for growth
Lydia Belanger features the Pepperdine Graziadio "Most Fundable Companies Qualfier Survey" in Entrepreneur. The survey is designed to provide entrepreneurs with an assessment of their business from an investor standpoint. Belanger notes that the free survey is part of a research initiative in which the Pepperdine Graziadio Business School partnered with The Venture Alliance (TVA) to develop the survey and its components.
Participants receive customized feedback and are automatically in the running to be one of the 20 "Most Fundable Companies" – a nationally recognized list. Pepperdine Graziadio Assistant Professor of Finance and Director of the Pepperdine Private Capital Markets Project Craig R. Everett, PhD, is quoted in the Entrepreneur piece, offering dos and don'ts for companies seeking funding. He encourages every start-up to take the qualifier survey and learn what they might be overlooking.
