I am 38, a research analyst with 15 plus years of work experience. I completed my masters in finance from the University of North Texas in 2008. I have a corpus of Rs 50 lakh that I would like to invest in a consultancy start-up but I need an additional investment of 75 lakhs to build the company. How can I pitch the idea to investors without giving away any equity? I am a first-generation entrepreneur. Can you share some tips that can be helpful?

Ans: Sorry, I didn't understand your question. If you are pitching to investors for money you will have to part with equity. I'd you don't want to dilute equity at this stage, start with the corpus that you have and build a bootstrapped company. Consulting does not need to much capital anyways.
