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.

HOW WE HELP COMPANIES SCALE

Planning & Strategy

We work with executive teams to align their business goals & capital strategy.  We look at their past performance, current operations, and create a road map for their growth goals. We engage our strategic partners to work with the executive team to eliminate any barriers to attracting capital. We use our experience with and knowledge of the many methods and sources of capital to architect a plan for growing the company revenue and attracting capital to expand.  We identify alternative financing sources to complement equity capital to minimize founders' equity dilution as much as possible.

Design & Execute

When traditional sources of capital reject your request for capital, if you have a plan for growth and a good story to tell, the good news is there are 4 ways to break beyond the barrier between you and your potential investors.  We will work with our partners to design an investor relations campaign that creates trust and influence for the CEO and attracts investors while growing your brand awareness and revenue. Using proven social media marketing tactics and targeted advertising, we will grow your customer base while identifying investors with a special interest in your company.

Investor Relations & Promotion

As your investor relations team, we manage the full loop of communication—from the introduction, due diligence, syndication, and closure. Using our media partners to integrate social media, advertising, and expert interview/video placement for increased credibility and awareness of company and products, we will manage the communication and outreach of your capital marketing campaign, manage the interaction with investors, and measure the effectiveness of the campaign to maximize engagement.  We work with your tech team to develop an investor relations section of your website for easy access to your investor marketing documents. Through that we create a secure web based portal for retention of offering documents & due diligence materials and manage the investors follow up.

Legacy & Future

The National Network of Angel Investors (NNOAI) is the 3rd generation of an angel group originally formed in Atlanta in 1994:  The Network of Business Angels & Investors (NBA&I).  NBA&I at one point was considered one of the most active groups in the Southeast and was recognized in the top 50 in Inc Magazine.  However, with the fallout from the Great Recession of 2010, and the changes brought about by the JOBS ACT in 2012, we recognized there was a need and an opportunity to re-engineer NBA&I and launch NNOAI.

NNOAI is a virtual online membership of Angel Investors with an intent to lead the Compassionate Capitalist Movement, and over time will facilitate syndication of established angel investor groups and to help establish angel groups identified by their location or their special interest such as:

  • Angel Investor Club for Women
  • Angel Investor Club of Georgia
  • Angel Investor Club of Florida
  • Angel Investor Club of Kansas
  • Angel Investor Club of Ohio
  • Angel Investor Club of New York
  • Affluent Investor Club
  • Crowd Funding Investor Club
  • and so many more
