Capital means money. You need it to leverage your status or business. Hence, the ability to raising money is worth competency. Unfortunately, it is a complex skill from persuasion to analytical.
However, capital is not stand alone. Raising capital without specific knowledge will lead you to stuck in not worthy games. You may fall into debt, or ruin your reputation.
My experience falls into debt to help me to improve my view about capital. Raise capital when you have specific knowledge at something. Conversely, raising capital without specific knowledge, you will fall in bad judgement.
