How do I get people to invest in my company
Keith, start with a business plan
So you want to start up a baseball training facility? This is a very good venture being that there are many parents, schools, and organizations that seek top of the line training facilities for their teams. I actually have a friend of mine that I have given advice to for the same thing.
The BEST advice I give people when attempting to start any business that provides a service is to try your hardest to GET CONTRACTS ON THE TABLE. This is especially necessary when looking for funding. If you can't get fully committed contracts on the table at least get a letter from the group(s) that clearly says that they fully have the intentions of using your service, for the price quoted at the time of negotiations, and for the certain amount of time defined during negotiations, on the date you promised. That letter should also have a deadline for you to reconnect with them to fully let them know that it is happening FOR SURE, and ON THE DATE PROMISED/OR NOT. That letter should also give them a deadline as to when they are able to back out of their LOI (letter of intention). It is bad manners to wait last minute to cancel on someone, even in business...no especially in business lol.
