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.
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
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.
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.
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.
PROJECTS THAT MAKE US PROUD
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.

Proven - over 15 years of success.
Efficient - create a plan, work the plan.
We understand investing in private companies can be risky. We know time may be your most
precious asset. We offer solutions for both.

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.
Karen was very helpful in answering questions related to the seed investment my company was finalizing. Her expertise was valuable for topics of taxation, investor relations and deal structuring. I look forward to work more with Karen in the future!
I would encourage any entrepreneur or capital investor to connect with their organization.
Karen is an effective leader in matching companies with investment capital. She has created a strong network and built a successful business model around her mission.
I have worked with Karen for seventeen years and have known her to be a true professional in all she does. She goes the extra mile for her clients and provides outstanding value with her services. Karen's knowledge of sales, marketing and business practices is outstanding and her enthusiasm and energy enable her to accomplish the difficult tasks that few others could manage.
Karen is highly motivated and knows the business of putting together people and companies to foster a deal or relationships. She is a student of different businesses in order to understand every aspect which provides her the knowledge to be of benefit.
Karen has a tremendous amount of knowledge and experience working in her field and has established quite a reputation as a go-to person for financial consulting and development. I see her as the resource I always seek when I make acquisition and investment decisions. She does set the bar for others to follow.
Karen and her insight to investors has been very helpful to me in my startup process!
I wish everyone I encountered was this helpful. Straight talking and to the point, Karen brought valuable insight to the situation.
I have valued Karen's involvement in my business as an investor and adviser. She has helped me navigate the complex world of determining what type of capital, how to structure my capital raise and attract investors. She has helped me build a business strategy that works for growing and sustaining revenue and making it easier to attract capital.
