In the business world, when it comes to investors, I have always heard no one wants to be first. This of course makes sense, people are more comfortable investing once someone else has gone through the due diligence process and feels comfortable handing over their money. Well I guess the proof is in the pudding or in this case the beer. It may be coincidence or we may just be lucky but after receiving our first outside funding, Dockside Brewery Inc., has a full dance card, filled with events and investor meetings.
We have a number of private investors that we are speaking to and will hopefully close more money in the next few weeks. We have also been working with a couple of Venture Capital firms that are speaking with us about substantial investments. Our hard work is finally paying off with debt/equity transactions. Of course we are not going to rest on our laurels. If we take our eye off the prize, even momentarily, all the traction and headway could be lost. I don’t usually toot my own horn, but as the CEO of a small startup it feels good when you win out and I feel the need to crow about it!
