Investigate Realistic Fundraising Options
A Step in a Management Maneuver in the Mezzanine Stage of Startup Development

Investigating realistic fundraising options is a step in preparing to navigate a cash crisis. This involves carefully considering the prospects of raising finance from investors within the "runway"--within the time you have on hand before your cash runs dry. Directors and officers of a company in cash crisis have some duties toward protecting creditors, and in some situations can be liable where creditors are harmed by poor decision-making, so it's important to be realistic when assessing the fundraising prospects. This step is completed when a realistic assessment has been made as to whether the Company is likely to raise funds from investors before cash runs dry.
