The 5 Challenging Questions Entrepreneurs Need To Be Prepared To Answer

When you start looking for funding for your business, you have to be prepared to answer a lot of questions – some of which can feel awkward or uncomfortable if this is the first time you’ve sought investment for a business. Here at EHE Capital, we know how that can feel, but we also know why it’s so important to ask these challenging questions early in an entrepreneur’s journey to funding. In the most recent episode of our Extraordinary Entrepreneurs Together podcast, our very own Pete Evison and Elliot Smith joined us to talk about exactly this.
