Due Diligence

Due diligence is a crucial part of any funding campaign, in order to show that a business has not just strategic appeal, but also real substance.  We review and organize the finances, legal and regulatory documents, its environmental impact, etc. to fairly represent the state of our clients to potential investors.

Fund Raising

We know who to call and how best to pitch our client's deal.  We make a thorough search of potential finance, from strategic investors, to specialist funds, to venture capitalists.  From this call list and from friends in the markets, we are relentless in marketing your business.


Tired of Do-It-Yourself?

It may save a few pennies to write your own business plan, but you only get one shot at making a first impression.  Might it help to expand your reach by adding finance professionals to your team?

Venture funding is "small deal"

This is a specialized market with a few dozen, rather than hundreds or thousands, of potential funders.   Canned speeches and cookie cutter business plans won't get you very far.  Greater success comes from targeting a small number of key providers of risk capital which typically comes as equity, but occasionally with some debt or as a hybrid instrument.
