WHO WE ARE

The World Has Changed When it Comes to Investing and Raising Capital.
Entrepreneurism is at the core of wealth creation in America and around the world. There has never been a better time than NOW.

We are the Venture Catalysts that Create Wealth through Funded Innovation.

History has shown that the Greatest Wealth is Created through Entrepreneurism.  Every Innovation that improves our lives came from an Entrepreneur with an idea; a strategy to succeed; and the funding to execute.

The Good News:  You don’t have to start a great company when you can invest in a great company and reap the same rewards as the founders.  Recent regulatory changes have made that easier than ever to happen.

We help Entrepreneurs and Investors create their legacy in the innovation they bring to market and the generational wealth they create.  It is what we do.

The men and women who take the road less traveled and invest in exciting private companies before they go public, have the opportunity that few realize – create wealth, leave a legacy of innovation, and have personal pride in knowing they impacted their community with new jobs and opportunities.

They are Compassionate Capitalists.

WHO WE HELP

Startup Stage

If you have not yet created a minimum viable product, and have no customers, you are in the most difficult period for raising capital.  It can feel very discouraging when you have a passion and a belief that your product or service can make a difference in the world and no one else seems to 'get it'. Our Entrepreneur Mastery Coaching program helps you refine your message and create the documents that will attract the right kind of investors to your opportunity – saving you time, money, and frustration.

Early Stage

You’ve raised a Seed Round.  You have proven your product and proven that there is a market for it.  Now you need capital to really launch and get to profitability. It is all you can do to keep up the pace you have now, taking time to raise capital seems an impossible feat.  How can you raise capital and run your business at the same time? We can help you as an extension of your team.

Growth Stage

You have been in business for a few years, making over a million in revenue, but feel like you have plateaued.  Your investors are wanting you to grow bigger so you can have the exit you originally forecast. You may have a new product you want to bring out, or you want to grow from regional to national.  You just feel in your gut, that if you could get some money to grow, to scale > bring on staff, have a real marketing and advertising strategy to grow market awareness, launch that new product, or acquire another smaller company > you could grow 10 x your size, and exit.  Your investors and your family would be ecstatic. We have a plan for that.

Entrepreneur Slips into the Value Proposition Black Hole

When an entrepreneur gets frustrated that investors or other market influencers don’t understand their project or don’t see the potential for it in the market, they tend to blame the other party for not ‘getting’ it.  I see this all the time and I call it the Value Proposition Black Hole.   The entrepreneur may have a great concept or actual product ready for market, but they have not figured out how to explain its value to the market and therefore to their audience.
