Many entrepreneurs have great ideas, but rarely ever execute on those ideas. Not because they don’t want to, but because they don’t have the proper resources to make it happen. The gap is incredibly huge as it relates to having an idea and implementing it. Ironically, what creates this gap is the lack of capital. Your pitch is what could either get your business off the ground or sink it, before it even starts.
