Investment Requests

By June 16, 2014blog, most popular

At our last bi-weekly partner meeting, Jerome, co-founder/CEO of SnapEngage, mentioned that several investors had emailed him to see if he’d be interested in talking. When I asked how he responded, his reply was beautiful…

“Thanks you for your message. SnapEngage is completely customer funded and we are not looking for additional investment.┬áIn order to focus on our main investors (our customers), I’ve decided to not take calls from investment companies.”
I’ve watched myself and too many entrepreneurs waste a lot of time and energy talking to potential investors and/or acquirers. It’s usually curiosity and ego driven to be able to put a price on what we own. It also tends to be a huge distraction to serving our most important investors – our customers. I wish I had this good of a response (and realization) twenty years ago! Thanks Jerome.
