The world has changed since 2008. The financial meltdown had long lasting effects on almost every industry. That included the finance industry incorporating a host of new regulations and adding more stringent internal oversight within almost all financial institutions. On balance, the manner in which business obtains capital has changed. The rules are different. The old days of submitting a set of current financials, three years tax returns and a few years’ worth of projections are simply gone. Now the financial world wants a host of third party opinions and intervention plus substantiation of the relevancy of the existing business model to boot. Acquiring capital is far more complex and demanding. It takes more than a village. It takes a team!
