Who to attract? Investors or customers?

Being 'involved' in the 'tech startup' (quote and quote on tech startup because i know a lot will argue that there's no such thing as that in here), it lets me meet different kind of entrepreneurs in all kind of forms.
There are those who build product / service to attract investors.
While, there are also those people who build product not really keen of attracting investors.
So which is better?
You build to attract investors and the customers later?
Or, you build to attract customers and attract investors later?

I would go for the latter. Attract customers first. If you have a certain amount of paying customers to prove that you are a good company to invest in then you would not be having trouble getting investors right?
