I sat down with Seattle based entrepreneur, angel investor and start-up advisor, Dave Parker. Dave shares some awesome tips for entrepreneurs and mistakes to avoid.
Dave gives some great tips including - "If the the customer or prospective investor can't repeat your message, then you clearly will not make the sale or get an investment".
Dave also provides some great ideas for new start-ups. This is a must show for any entrepreneur looking to grow or raise capital.
