Consider all resources before seeking investment.

Berkonomics

There are so many resources for early money to validate an idea, turn it into a product and increase the value of the company before professional investors come into the picture.

Take money from close resources, but treat it as if the responsibility is even greater to protect the investors and their money than from a professional.
