How much money do you need to do what you need to do? Everything should start with a business model. Worry about funding after you understand what you’re trying to do.

Venture Capital is required where you have to grow quickly and capture a market to create a sustainably defensible market position. If this is not the case, then bootstrap and hold off on equity funding as long as possible so you preserve your upside as a founder.

Uniqueness: Is there anything that makes your product or service unique? In order to raise the interest of investors, you have to be able to differentiate your product from what is already on the market.
