“How do I find the money to start my business?” isn’t any magic, and contrary to popular myth, nobody is waiting in the wings to throw money at you just because you have a new and exciting business idea. On the other hand, there are many options available for starting a business, especially for research based companies.

Be sure to be well informed and start connecting with the right people at a very early stage!
