Getting Your Coins Up In 2020

February has always been a money month. Many Americans are steeped in tax preparations, mid-roll into first-quarter financial targets and calculating new year priorities.

When you’re launching a startup, yes, it can initially be about the market opportunity and the passion and how you’re going to change the world, but eventually, it’s going to get back to the money.

And, you better know your numbers.

As I worked on this month’s issue, I tried to take into account many of the discussions founders would be having with their teams:

  • Taxes
  • Revenue Targets
  • Venture Capital
  • Crowdfunding
  • Fundraising
  • Revenue Projections

We’re talking to Crowdfund Main Street Cofounder Jenny Kassan about crowdfunding trends for 2020 and Angela Lee, founder of 37 Angels, about changes on the horizon in venture capital.

We’ll also find out how the organization, Black Female Founders, is helping to level the playing field for female founders in Washington, D.C. Plus, our new guide, “Finding Funding: Why Getting The Money You Need Starts With You,” goes live. Full of tips and strategies from entrepreneurs who have successfully raised millions of dollars, “Finding Funding” will put you seven steps closer to your money.

So, prepare to come back each day with a pen and a pad to take notes as we do our best to help you stack your coins.

Until next time …

Rock your day,
