We help entrepreneurs get ready to raise capital. This usually consists of some or all of the following services:
- Business plan development
- Financial forecast development
- Pitch deck (investor presentation) preparation
- Strategy development
- Market research and analysis
- Competitor research and analysis
- Financial analysis
- General coaching and advisory services
- Capital formation strategy
Of course not. Nobody can make that guarantee (and if somebody ever makes that guarantee, it’s a good idea to run away quickly). A good plan is essential, but a plan alone will not get funded. Although we will do our best to help you prepare, we have no control over how well you present yourselves to investors, or how well you answer their questions. We can coach and we can mentor, but at the end of the day, it’s your business and you must close the deal.
Generally yes, we can sometimes make informal introductions to potential investors or other intermediaries.
No, we are advisors and consultants, not investors. But, there are other investment type we can discuss with you.
If you run a business, then it’s probably safe to say yes. In fact, you may require more than one business plan: one for raising capital and one for running your business. The former is a compact, easily digested strategic document that is designed to persuade potential investors to pick up the phone and invite you to their offices for an initial meeting. The latter is a more detailed document serving as a day-to-day roadmap, detailing the tactics supporting your overall strategy. The former needs to be an attractive document that sells; the latter can be a collection of spreadsheets, lists, research summaries, and other documents stuffed in a binder that you refer to and update on a regular basis. We specialize in preparing plans for all capital-raising business plan and operating business plan.
You could easily spend 500 hours or more preparing an investor-grade business plan, financial forecast, and investor presentation, even if you have an MBA. This is time you should probably be spending building your team, product, distribution channels, and customer base.
In addition to our expertise in preparing these materials, we offer independent, third-party insights into your business, and may raise questions that you might not have thought to ask.
Your initial payment is non-refundable. This is because by the time you have decided to hire us, we have already set aside time to work with you, and we may even have turned away other opportunities in order to provide you with the best possible experience.
Subsequent payments are subject to a pro-rated refund if you choose to terminate the project before we have fully earned the subsequent payment!
For example, (If our payments fees are based on numbers of hours!)! Suppose fees for your project are broken into three payments, each covering 20 hours of services. The initial payment covers the first 20 hours, and the second payment covers the next 20 hours. If you change your mind about the project after we have put a total of 30 hours into the project, you would be entitled to a refund for half of the second payment because we will only have earned 10 hours of it.
Gladly. We prefer to use a Mutual MOU so that our own trade secrets can be protected as well.
We are unable to show you any of our work for other clients/customers.
But you would learn about it during your first meeting with us. If you would like a deeper understanding, we can provide you a sample work for you based on an agreed fundamentals.
Currently, we do not have a based office location. But we are available everywhere virtually as our business nature doesn’t rely on a fixed table or hub. We rely heavily on the phone, e-mail, fax, and other business tools, and have always met most of our clients within their promises.
