In this video, Entrepreneur Network partner, Business Rockstars interviews Evan Strenk -- the CEO and Co-founder of Milo Sensors -- on how to effectively pick investors. According to Strenk, to succeed as an entrepreneur you must have both the business development skills -- but also the capital. 

Strenk speaks about the importance of diversity when seeking out investors. The team behind Milo Sensors chose investors from areas of manufacturing, sales marketing as well as venture capital. In this way, the company was able to effectively spread itself into several spheres of expertise, and, eventually, secured 10 early investors.
