Hey Robert,

Great question! I know a lot of people are looking to learn more about how to generate genuine interest from investors - I can imagine it is quite the challenge. While I do not have direct experience personally running a business or starting a company, I know a lot of people I have worked with have found value out of these resources I am listing below. Hope you find these articles and resources productive!
