I'm making what I guess you'd call a website startup, at it's current state, I can do all the developing myself and I have a design coming along from my partner. Overheads will never exceed the cost of hosting and marketing - which I will probably do without spending any money any way.
I have not looked around anywhere for investment as we simply don't need any starting cash due to our combined skillset. My main concern however is that I will not reap the benefits of having a proper investment with experienced people behind it. I'm reading up about all these startups (with less prospects that my site imho) that are getting large investments and it certainly creates buzz.
Are there other worthwhile things companies get out of proper investments aside from cash that I will miss out on? Will this outweigh the fact I'll own the entire company?
