When building a company, there will be a point where you go after your first million dollars or more. For this, you must choose an investment banker. Finding the right banker is not an easy process. You must ensure the person you chose understands your marketplace, understands your product relatively well, and has raised money for similar companies. These things will help to ensure the highest possible probability of success in a capital raise. Your investment banker is somebody you need to meet with one to two months before you need the money so that you can familiarize them with your company and prepare materials for them.
