Landing eCommerce funding is one of the most important things you can do for your online retail business. Yet so many eCommerce brands shy away from securing an outside funding source. Why? It could be due to the overwhelming number of investors and venture capital firms available, or simply that you have no idea where to even begin searching for an investor.

In order to keep growing and expanding your brand, you need to establish and foster relationships with VC partners looking to invest in long term eCommerce growth.
