We build our dream projects by first dreaming about the success and the produce that shall be eventually delivered. But however, there is a lot that goes into first placing the very primary brick to stand strong the very foundation of the venture you aspire to construct. The very first topic that can raise the lines on your forehead would definitely be that of capital interrogation. Where is the money going to come in from? Will it be effectively utilized? Will the returns be good enough? Would the payback be easy? Is the burden of the bank loans going to be too heavy?
These are the usual and the most encountered questions that can trouble even a very ambitious and head strong person. The life juice and the blood of any organization-in-the-making are the finances that shall support its existence as well as encourage its stability and future growth.

- It is a continuous effort by each and every person to chalk out why the investor should invest in your company, but however, make sure that it is not you who is loud, but rather it is the purpose and the future realistic potential that is talking, loud and clear!

- The finances if and when reciprocated by the investors should also be accounted to the investors giving them a fair idea about what’s going where and why it’s going there. The financial structure and the strategies connected to the revenue that you shall administer are very important to be addressed to the investors. A projection of the percentage of the revenue for the succeeding 3 years should also be provided along with that of the current year.

On a general note and aspect, it is certain for any investor to invest in a profitable looking project. Thus, the one thing that needs to be made sure of is the ideas to be induced into making the venture and its goals realistic as well as unique. It is very important to set apart one’s own products and services from the rest of the slot striving to make it stand out and appealing to the overall audiences. To be different yet safe on the front of potential sales is extremely important and as important it is to be able to portray this point in the DRHP to the prospective and potential investors. It may be the potential to bring about the bright and clear aspects of one’s business goals which can certainly help to make a difference when it comes to convincing the investors and taking them into confidence about the business’ potential and future positive prosperity.
