An entrepreneur’s credibility is vital when preparing for investment.
If the business owner understands the company’s financial information and knows how to use it effectively to run the business and can credibly discuss P&L ratios, balance sheet strength, gearing levels etc then investors are more likely to sit up and listen. Countless investment pitches have started well until the entrepreneur is unable to answer questions about simple profitability ratios and potential investors are left questioning the entrepreneur’s business acumen.
