Is a startup more likely to get funded by asking for less money?

Getting Started

Well, maybe, if the investor has no idea what they’re doing but wants to be an investor.

Investment isn’t just a loan or capital for you to work with, it’s an amount of money in exchange for equity (ownership) in the business. The amount you should raise is determined by what you need to make what you’re doing work; not just whatever you can get. In exchange, you set a value of the business and the investor owns a piece relative to that.

“Asking” for less, or more, is the surest way to not raise any. Both because you’re not asking and because the amount matters.
