Our VCs are sharing tips to making a success of your Grow Movement project.

Tip: Hold an icebreaker session with your client
The entrepreneur’s comfort level and trust throughout the project
is very important. An icebreaker session helps people get to know each other and buy into the purpose of the project. In your icebreaker session, you and the entrepreneur can introduce yourself and share some details about your life, your hobbies, your job, and your family. This paves the way for a smooth, successful project.

Tip: Set the foundations
In my opinion, setting the foundation of the expectations is critical right in the beginning of any VC-Client relationship. Having the right expectations moulds the mindset and attitude that each person brings to the table. We were able to set objectives, stages to achieving those objectives and end deliverables by spending the first couple of sessions working on them together.

Tip: Think creatively
The entrepreneurs that I’ve worked with have all had unique circumstances to deal with in making their business a success, but they have proven themselves to be flexible, adaptable and dynamic in their approach to improving. Therefore, thinking creatively is absolutely key; the entrepreneurs you work with will have completely different situations compared to the clients you normally work with!

Tip: Encourage your clients to separate business and personal finances
If your client doesn’t already have separate finances, encourage them to set up a business account and unpick their financial mix. That way they can really start focusing on cashflow.
