Broker-dealers are largely hired to raise money for a company. They do the work for you and often have a rolodex of investors that they try to match (whether a good fit exists or not), so you don’t gain any new capabilities and you may get money that can be detrimental to the business. We know that we won’t always be around, so our process helps build new capabilities in you and your team so that you leave more equipped and better able to engage the right resources in the future and find the right money from the right sources to help you grow your business now.
The companies that raised money after working with us did it not because of any investors we or they found. They raised money because they solved big risks in their business and created powerful value propositions for investors. In other words, they became investable.
