Many founders/entrepreneurs often get taught the misconception that investors are the first step in setting up!
Today, the method has changed and so should you! In the rise of startups, following the Lean Startup method is the norm now.
By building a prototype, testing your products to early adopters and then funding through crowdsourcing and family/friends, a successful product will attract VCs and investors to invest without needing to chase after them.
VCs are more focused on scaleups on existing products.
