Calling Entrepreneurs - Our AngelNV Bootcamp Reveals What Investors Want and How To “Nail it!”
Startup founders,we have good news and bad news. First, the bad news:statistics show that even with a strong inaugural launch, 65% of businesses, including startups, will fail within their first 10 years. Many won’t even make it that far. Some say that as many as 10% of startups fail outright within the first year.
Given how much you’ve put into your new business, these trends can be disheartening. The good news is this: every problem has a solution, and protecting a new enterprise from failure isn’t a matter of luck. You must learn what works and what doesn’t; you must understand that entrepreneurship is a process in which you “learn-by-doing,” and this is hard to achieve on your own.
In other words, founders can mitigate their risk when they learn from those who have come before them. At StartUpNV, we engage successful founders and subject matter experts from throughout Nevada who have been where you are today.
Lesson #1: Learn From the Past to Shape the Future
Economists have studied how past successes contribute to future success. Data from the National Bureau of Economic Research notes that companies backed by a previously-successful entrepreneur are nearly twice as likely to succeed than those helmed by first-time entrepreneurs.
The reasons why are numerous, but in our view, this is a testament to how much knowledge can be gained from any entrepreneurial endeavor—even those that come up short. Henry Ford said that failure is nothing more than an opportunity to begin again, this time more intelligently. In the startup game, this philosophy is what we eat for breakfast.
With that in mind, AngelNV’s Entrepreneur Bootcamp enables your competitive edge by providing one-on-one mentorship opportunities and personalized coaching sessions, in addition to content deep-dives, collaborative working sessions, and all things pitch-prep.
Even innovative companies must compete in a cutthroat business environment. Having a seasoned mentor by your side fuels your innovation, and equips you with the strategic acumen to outmaneuver competitors and seize opportunities.
The right strategic guidance helps a founder avoid many of the usual suspects that contribute to startup failure:
- Poor market fit
- Inadequate financial planning
- Regulatory & compliance issues
- Scaling challenges
- And more
Lesson # 2: Prep for Success!
Every innovator deserves the chance to make their mark on the world. This philosophy is the origin of our AngelNV Entrepreneur Bootcamp (AB), a 100% free program that equips both new and experienced entrepreneurs with the knowledge and support to raise startup funding.
