       ABOUT US

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.

I encourage any entrepreneur or capital investor to connect with Karen's organization.

T.M. / Advisor / Investor

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.


We help BOTH Investors and Entrepreneurs Achieve their Goals through Compassionate Capitalism.


We understand investing in private companies can be risky.  We know time may be your most
precious asset.   We offer solutions for both.


Time is Money.
You shouldn’t have to choose to raise capital
or run your business. Work with a team of experienced professionals so you can do both.


Simple - fundamentals are tried and true.
Proven - over 15 years of success.
Efficient - create a plan, work the plan.

Reviews & Testimonials
From Clients, Partners & Investors

Karen has a real heart for matching entrepreneurs and angel investors. She has made a significant impact in our entrepreneurial community. She has been in this business for a long enough time to build a significant network and a great base of investors. She is tireless in her pursuit of success for the entrepreneur and the investor. I recommend her conferences for anyone interested in raising money or looking for good quality private equity investments.
