Abstract

Entrepreneurs who succeed in obtaining investment funding are those who know that establishing credibility matters a great deal. The authors identify at least four types of action strategies that entrepreneurs use to create the right impression. By skillfully employing several symbolic yet practical actions, entrepreneurs with little previous track record can gain the confidence of resource providers. In the race for scarce resources, more managers would do well to check their own moves against this winning repertoire.
