Are you in need of substantial amounts of capital to fund your Company or business idea? During the process of raising capital, would you like to maintain the vast majority of equity ownership interest and voting control? Do you continue to hear a discouraging “No” as you seek available funding? If so, we can help.
As former Wall Street Investment Bankers and experts in compliance matters related to selling securities, we are well-familiar with the criteria employed by capital funding sources looking to fund “quality deal flow.” These professional capital sources include investment banks (e.g., broker-dealers), angel investor groups, hedge funds, private equity firms, family offices, and registered investment advisors. From their perspective, quality deal flow typically refers to a company with positive cash flow and an experienced management team with a unique product or service that is in high demand in a growing market. Unfortunately, identifying quality deal flow is often an overly simplified quantitative assessment that does not fully recognize the distinctive benefit and potential value of investing in your Company. We can help companies at any financing stage structure and present themselves for better positioning to attract professional investors.
Our Commitment. The majority of start-up and early-stage companies are told “No” by professional investors because they do not yet have a solid track record of strong earnings growth, proven revenues, and positive cash flow. Our job is to help position your Company to obtain the necessary capital while maintaining the vast majority of equity ownership interest and voting control.
Our Process. We have revolutionized the way capital is raised for start-up and early-stage companies by automating the proven techniques utilized by Wall Street investment banks. Our process enables you to legally and effectively compete directly with traditional financial institutions for individual investor capital. Furthermore, our process puts you in charge of the entire capital raising effort throughout the life of your Company. You will attract qualified investors by conducting a series of well-orchestrated securities offerings to meet current market demand, while maintaining compliance with federal and state(s) securities laws.
Selling securities, especially hybrid securities such as convertible bridge notes and convertible participating preferred equity, to raise capital for your Company is (without question) the most effective way to raise substantial amounts of capital while maintaining the vast majority of common equity ownership and voting control. Thus, our process starts with developing a five-year capitalization plan by constructing pro forma financial projections that are GAAP compliant; creating hybrid securities from the pro forma financial projections; and producing securities offering documents with marketable deal structures compliant with U.S. federal and state(s) securities laws, rules, and regulations. We then teach you to utilize proven selling techniques that work. Our process further assures the following: 1) you do not sell out too much of your Company too early…for too little; 2) your Company’s capital structure does not become cost prohibitive—by implementing rolling re-financing techniques; 3) you and your Company maintain compliance; and 4) you, your founders, and other management team members actually raise the capital you seek…on your terms.
