Is a Company ready to think about outside investment....?

"Sequence of Blue Ocean Strategy" is pretty much a summary of the initial evaluation of an angel deal...

1. Product/Service has Significant Value/Utility to the User
2. Compelling Price
3. Appropriate Cost of Production (i.e. good margins at the compelling price)
4. Reasonable Adoption Plan

At least self certifying (if not certification by a relevant 3rd party) that a deal passes well through this evaluation should probably be a requirement for beginning any fundraising effort.
