How To Raise Money For a No-Code Startup

I’m not going to talk you out of it, so let’s make sure you take your best shot

OK, so you’ve built an MVP and it’s mostly no-code and low code. Now you want to go out and raise money, preferably from legit investors.

The good news is you’re already on the market, and hopefully generating revenue, which is why you went the no-code MVP route in the first place. The bad news is that in every single investor’s eyes, you’ve constructed a hastily duct-taped together product using someone else’s fly-by-night tech, so you’ve already got two big strikes against you.

Let’s make sure you don’t get that third strike.

First question: Should you raise money?

Like I said, I’m not going to stop you.

I myself am building a no-code MVP, Teaching Startup — a project to make more and better entrepreneurs — and I’ve been able to quickly get to producing revenue, engagement, and growth — both in number of customers and breadth and depth of product features. But I’ve never crossed the streams, so to speak. I’ve never raised money on non-traditional tech, and never built an MVP with the sole intent to raise money from outside investors.
