I have an EdTech consulting and professional development group that is ready for the next level. We've got a few years of experience and the last 3 quarters have had extremely strong sales. In the Education Consulting space, there is a long time between sales and receipt of cash. However, I want to leverage the current excitement to expand my market reach and sales capacity but want to do this faster than waiting for the organic growth. Common Core and their associated tests make this a good time to grow fast. I just need more capital to do this.
I assume I should get a valuation before seeking funding. Any tips or resources on where to go and how to position ourselves?
