Dear people. My goal in this thread is to get as much possible advice / help on result-driven techniques to acquire the funding for our pre-funded start up Preptalk. Background Preptalk is a video content company that is going to validate lifehacks under household conditions aiming to reduce viewers monthly expenditure by a whopping 33%. Problem Getting funded, obviously. There are overwhelming amounts of 'chance-based' techniques and services but they are unsuitable for a start-up like us because we can't afford financial risks. We are of the opinion pre-funded startups should be protected from 'chance-based' services but that's a story for some other time. How much do we need? Current forecasts require 430k euros in revenue annually. Since our subscription is 90 euros annually that would come down to a minimum of 4778 paying customers. Our solution Pre-order subscriptions. Basically reaching out to as many people as possible and just get them to commit. Then when we actually start, invoice everybody right away. But where can we go to with our pre-order subscription solution to get the necessary people willing to support us?
