Your startup’s success depends on your ability to raise funds. Many founders have great companies and teams, but struggle to close their rounds with investors.
There is an information asymmetry between founders and investors. Founders often give investors an inflated portrayal of their startup 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.
Getting startup funding is a strenuous process. Founders always believe that they will close their rounds within months, but it always takes longer than expected. The Companyon Platform Team is designed to help you accelerate your fundraising by doing the heavy lifting for you.
We have been on both sides of the table so we know all the pieces you need to have ready when pitching for funding. Our time-tested solutions will help you maximize your chances of success and minimize time spent obtaining a term sheet from the investor you want to work with.
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 dynamics 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 grows.
We fuse your business vision together with the deliverables from the market research and the financial model steps to create a powerful pitch deck and a strong business case.
We help guide you through the process of determining the right source of finance for your startup, from the basics of debt versus equity to the intricacies of convertible notes, crowdfunding, priced rounds, and SBA Loans.
