Obtaining venture capital funding puts your business on the path to growth and success. However, receiving funding won’t come easy, and you’ll need to consider several important factors before pitching VCs.

Vincent Bradley, CEO and co-founder of FlashFunders, explains how to successfully land venture capital, including when to pursue venture capital, the length of time it takes to close a deal and the psychological aspect of pitching.
