Business analysis

Too often, companies focus on presenting the product, neglecting relevant metrics, business model economics and thorough go-to-market strategy.

Having worked extensively with investors on assessing new investment opportunities, our startup fundraising advisors bring the quintessence of this experience. We know exactly how to structure the story and your pitch to attract the right attention, critically challenge performance and strategy to date, and build a defendable and well-executed plan going forward. If your track record is limited or appears bumpy, our fundraising experts work with senior management to find the underlying positive story and tie this into a longer narrative that supports future growth.

How do I hire startup funding consultants?

It will tell you what industries they worked with and the results they achieved for their clients, and whether this aligns with your situation and goals. After that, look up the reviews from their clients on the Internet to avoid unpleasant surprises regarding their approach to collaboration and delivery. Then, schedule an intro call to see whether you are on the same page, that these people know their stuff and genuinely understand what you need in order to raise. Lastly, do the paperwork: study the contract and NDA to know exactly what you’re signing up to.

What types of startup funding exist?

How does a fundraising roadmap look like?

The typical fundraising roadmap includes a few key steps. First, you must establish your funding ask based on your financial projections. Then, you craft investment materials, including an investment teaser, pitch deck, business plan, and financial model. You then compile a list of suitable investors and start your outreach campaign, where you include your pitch deck. After investors get back to you, you schedule a call where you answer their questions, ask yours, and negotiate. Once you both agree on the deal, you finalize the agreement by completing the required legal paperwork and then receive the money.
