When it’s time to expand your business into a new market or industry, even established entrepreneurs need to raise capital for expansion. But while it’s easy to fall into the trap of accepting money from virtually anyone, especially if you really need it, one entrepreneur recommends being smart about vetting who your investors are.

Specifically, she looks for investing people and institutions that can also amplify a brand’s marketing and product distribution while being aligned with a company’s mission, who are connected to the do-good philosophy and mission to support clean, healthy living.
