Some of the best examples of startups that have been successful in raising funds are Oculus, Veronica Mars, and Baubax. They all have one thing in common: they have a great team.
A good team has a mix of people with different backgrounds. They should have an expert in their field, but also someone who is willing to learn and grow with them (as opposed to relying on their expertise). The right people can make or break a startup, so it's important for founders to spend time finding the right balance.
The second thing that all three of these companies had was a clear goal for their product. This makes it easy for investors to understand how much money they need and how it will be used once funding is secured. As a result, investors are more likely to invest if there's an obvious plan for how the money will be used after receiving it from them.
