I care about “funding” you with a $300 credit line you don’t use/don’t touch, to get you your 1st $1,000 in revenue #CherryPop #ch2

$300 pales in comparison to getting a $5,000,000 infusion of sexy venture capital. A $5mm first round capital seems like a homerun. A HR seems to be the opposite of small ball. But home runs often come after small ball is played. 

Small ball gets you on the right side of the Entrepreneurship Bell Curve 
(Much of your risk is mitigated)

You can play small ball right now (or wait for VC funding):
