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.



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.


Private Investors

Investing in successful private companies before they go public or are bought is the 2nd greatest way to accumulate wealth that can have generational impact.  Karen Rands started the Compassionate Capitalist Movement to educate men and women with discretionary income and large retirement accounts on how to diversify into private equity, in other words to learn how to become angel investors.  The National Network of Angel Investors is a growing virtual network of community centric and special interest based angel investor clubs. Click to learn more about Karen’s expertise and the services she offers investors and angel groups.


We are proud of our results. Over the years, we have helped hundreds of small business owners move to the next level and achieve greater success. Whether they needed a business strategy, product launch, profit maximization, access to capital...or something totally unique to that entrepreneurs circumstances - We have delivered.

The investors we worked appreciated the services we offered that ultimately reduced their risk and increased their return on investment.
