If you have enough capital to launch you have all the capital you need for now. Get out in the marketplace and see if people actually want to buy what you’re selling. Is your marketing angle right? What features is the product missing? What are customers telling you sucks?

Get that stuff figured out.

Once that’s done, you can take a breath and see if raising capital is even important anymore. Are you break even or profitable? Great! Then you just got the best seed round ever from your customers.

Not profitable or are but see a HUGE OMG opportunity that truly requires large sums of cash today to beat competitors to the space. I’m going to say this is actually extremely unlikely. But, if you’re the special flower where it is the case then go ahead and start talking to angels or VCs at that point.

If you’ve got sales and a vision that’s OMG HUGE raising money won’t be a problem.
