• Can you demonstrate that your company is likely to realize significant revenues and earnings in the next 3-7 years?
• Can you demonstrate that your company will produce a significant return for investors?

• Are you willing to take the advice from investors and accept board of director decisions you may not always agree with?

• You can demonstrate that the business is likely to grow rapidly
• Your business plan is in top shape
