What are the Odds of Securing Funding?

Your startup needs money to grow a team, develop a product, and bring it to market. Beyond bootstrapping, when founding teams need to raise capital from institutional investors, the odds are stacked against them when looking at the data.

Not only is it difficult to build a successful company, but it can be nearly as hard to raise money from a VC or a Family Office. This is due particularly to the asymmetry between founders and venture capitalists. Founders only have a few opportunities to build and scale a successful company whilst VCs have the advantage of deciding from thousands of opportunities.

How does Fundraising Consulting Help Startups?

As founders, being close to your business is great but it can make it difficult to identify certain weaknesses that investors look for. Investors are risk-averse, and no opportunity is a sure bet. We understand investor psychology and align your strengths and any hidden disadvantages to match this mindset.

Our process takes a deep dive into your business & evaluates the investment opportunity, just like an investor would. We guide you through the entire fundraising process, from developing the right narrative on your pitch deck to developing a data room and matching you with the best-fit investors for your startup and stage.
