On today’s The Startup Chat we talk about how to manage a relationship with your investors. This part of business isn’t really talked about. There are tons of resources for how to get investors into your business, but not how to deal with them. We are going to address that today on the podcast.

There are 3 types of investors: The positive, the negative, and the neutral. We’re going to tell you how to work with each and how to know which is which.

Here are the topics of today’s episode:

  • What a successful fundraiser does.
  • Why you need to keep your investors informed.
  • How an investor can outgrow your company.
  • How investors can be helpful.
  • What is a positive investor and how should you treat them?
  • What is a neutral investor and how should you treat them?
  • What is a negative investor and how should you treat them?
  • How to avoid negative investors.
  • The types of a negative investors.
  • The dangers of a child/parent mindset.
