Definitely great points here by Susan. This is much more than just an investment for funds. They are as close to being a business partner as you can get without having a business partner that is just a friend you know or are related to. The working environment can also play a huge role on whether a business is success past their startup point. While the “boss” runs the face of the business and is often in the role of acquiring new clients. Employees often hold key points in the business’s “gears” and everyday operations. Creating a good working environment is key and can often lead to a booming business!
