Bringing Private Equity, Venture Funding, and Entrepreneurs Together

If you are looking for funding, we can assist by introducing you to our network of private equity and venture funding partners. We will work with you to determine the type of funding needed; the best source; the optimal amount required; and the timing.

In concert with these discussions, our funding partners rely on us to assist you in developing skills needed to transition from founder to CEO, which is critical to the success of the business and their investment.

Whether you are ready or not, once you introduce venture capital or private equity dollars into the equation, your investors expect you to act like a CEO. This means demonstrating the confidence and capability to oversee all aspects of the business (people, product, process, financial results) at each stage of business maturity. Based on where you are at on the Founder/CEO capability continuum, we can help you develop the skills needed for success. Basic capabilities required to acquire start-up funding include:
