    Oh, of course, such business whales do not need to attract investments. If we talk about small and medium-sized businesses, then at the first stages it is better for entrepreneurs to try to attract investors as actively as possible. I want to advise you a fundraising consultant company that will help you find partners and investors through various approaches. This way your business will develop quite quickly and you will be able to look for new ways to expand.
