Your startup’s success is contingent on your ability to raise funds. Many founders have great companies and teams, but struggle to close their rounds with investors.
There is an asymmetry in information between entrepreneurs and investors. Entrepreneurs often give investors an inflated portrayal of their company in hopes of securing funding. Additionally, many founders do not know how to prepare the necessary materials, properly back up numbers and research, or deliver the concise pitch that investors are looking for.
We have been on both sides of the table so we know all the pieces you need to maximize your funding success and accelerate your funding timeline.
Aside from your team, accurate market sizing is one of the most important factors for an investor when evaluating your business. Investors are not impressed by a large market figure by itself, they want to see that you fully understand the ecosystem of your market including your competitors and how you aim to position yourself to capture your share of the market
Your financial model is your entire business plan expressed in numbers. We validate your assumptions by making sure you have considered all of the fundamentals including customer segmentation, revenue model, sales strategy, and organizational and staffing strategy. In addition to the financial model, we highlight your key metrics and targets in a simple dashboard that you can update as your business progresses.
