How to successfully raise investment


 “What gets an investor’s attention above everything else is traction. If you walk into an investor’s office with the beginnings of a hockey-stick curve, you’ll trigger a Pavlovian response — they’ll sit you down and try to understand the rest of your business model story.” Ash Maurya – Scaling Lean

Prime Metric ‘Traction App’: Use our tool to focus on and achieve traction each week to get paying customers

Progress Reports: Rather than a one-off pitch fest, Investors can be impressed by the progress particiants make over eight weeks and be reassure that the team can execute or ‘Get Stuff Done’!
