Taking outside money is a huge step for a start-up; it can free the founders from the need to self-fund the business; it can allow the business to scale-up in a way that bootstrapping does not.  There are significant risks as well; investors typically demand a level of accountability from the start-up, if not outright control.  This webinar explained the differences between rounds (i.e. friends and family; angels; venture capital funds); the difference between debt and equity; and the “market” in each of these contexts-  all of which is critical for you to know if you are going to be able to advise your entrepreneur-clients in their negotiations with potential investors.
