Many business ideas fail not as a result of a bad idea or because funding is not generated but because in the early stages of a business's development the business owner is left to set up a business without the people skills and resources that a large Corporate would have access to.
Marketing and sales, business modelling, finance and cash flow are just a few of the considerations a business owner needs to work through to get his business off the ground. Financial Investors often provide strategic advice or connect a business owner to their network of partners however in the majority of cases are not able to work on-the-ground in the day to day workings of the business.
