Seed Finance: “Seed money, sometimes known as seed funding or seed capital, is a form of securities offering in which an investor invests capital in exchange for an equity stake in the company.”
As on organisation (GloVo) we grew up through various Co Working Spaces. Found.ation in the begging, theCube Athens later and always in contact with ImpactHUB Athens.
You see, in each organisation’s first steps, there are things that are missing. Knowledge, network, professionalism. All these things can be found in coworking spaces. When you also add to them business consulting, that is included in incubators, then you are 2 clicks more sure that you are walking on the right road and decreasing risks to get lost in the future.
Because if knowledge is one positive thing, then the right environment, having next to you people that believe in you, coming across other startups and getting to see that nothing is impossible, then you have the advantage of emotional readiness and self-confidence that makes you continue when difficulties and unexpected situations occur.
Having someone invest in you, apart from the perspective he must see, also requires trust.
Reliability is one caracteristic, that many times is difficult to prove, as you are in the start of you professional route. That’s where the Incubator you are in comes to support you. Being in this field more years than you have and having already proven its worth. So, people that are interested in seed finance, usually go to specific incubators that constitute a kind of first guarantee for them.
While in 2016, where the economic situations is going from bad to worse, and the available money are being invested even more carefully and with less percentage of risk, reliability is the true currency that makes cooperations happen & last.
