Founders need to be prepared to tackle complex questions, often spontaneously. Having an experienced investor by your side can help a founder respond more effectively to important decisions and inevitable challenges. While you do not want your investor to necessarily be overly involved in the minutia of daily operations, having access to a knowledgeable investor can be a valuable resource for dealing with strategic issues. Let them know you’d like to use them as a resource moving forward.
Investors will often have a fairly well developed network. They can help founders create value by introducing you to potential customers or future investors. Don’t be shy about asking your investor for introductions to important stakeholders such as those who could be valuable strategic partners, advisors, customers – and additional investors. Let them know you’ll be relying on their expertise and connections.
