Does a Solo entrepreneur with no professional experience stand a chance of getting funded? Historically, most businesses are built based on partnerships or an independent entrepreneur with a core team of individuals. But nowadays the big question is whether it is possible to go alone as a “solopreneur”?
The question is whether you have specific credentials, experience, and driving forces to make your vision a reality. Whether a solo entrepreneur is truly the most effective way of development.
If you have enough expertise and funding opportunities, a separate path can be worked out for your benefit. Otherwise, don’t be afraid to open the door and ask for help to make your vision a reality.
