INVESTOR’s Challenges:

INVESTORS need a good combination of logical and pragmatic thinking, with a willingness to follow their hunches and take a risk. These are often difficult skills to combine. Some barriers can include:

  • The need to ask for information that might be hard to quantify, which can slow down decision making
  • Not allocating separate funds outside normal day-to-day business requirements
  • Having too many conflicting demands on limited resources
  • Failing to help others grow in their ability to influence and becoming a ‘bottle neck’ in making things happen.
