Successfully Raising Money for Startups!

Accomplished startup fundraiser - pitch decks, bizplans, 1-pager, etc.

I've helped startups raise over +$60MM in early-stage funding and have helped them acquire tens of millions of dollars in sales and business development deals.

I am a former co-founder and CRO taking a break from running my own SaaS business as I raise small kids. I have raised money for my own startups in the past and have acquired Fortune 100 clients. I will work with you to get your startup funded.

I approach raising money for early-stage tech companies like I would landing major corporate (enterprise) customers, as the process that it is: we set goals, outline a successful strategy, identify who we are raising money from, prepare a fundraising workflow, prepare all of the necessary fundraising collateral (including pitch decks, business plan, one-pager, executive summary, online profiles, etc.) and finally we execute the strategy.

I believe that fundraising for startups is both a pragmatic and an emotional endevour. Your startup must not only tick off most of the investor's boxes (expected RoR, investment time frame, business niche, etc.), but it must also connect with the investor on an emotional level. The investor has to believe in you, believe in your integrity and want to be work with you and your team. I'l work with you to build a pitch deck, one pager, executive summary, online funding profiles and anything else you may need.

My day job includes reviewing startup business plans, and all of the accessory collateral they provide, including pitch decks, one-pagers, executive summaries and other documents, for early stage-startup investors, including private angels, angel networks, corporate venture capital arms and micro-VCs.

By hiring me you are reverse-engineering your success because I have a lot of experience taking apart pitch decks and analyzing their strong and weak points. I know how to present the figures in a way that compels investors to wire startups that first check and I know how to navigate due diligence in a way that will get you funded quickly.

I have been published in startup publications, including Startup Grind, The Observer, E27 and numerous other places and I have been cited in Fortune and Forbes. I feel I know what I can do to help you get published on the largest platforms. My articles are clear, concise and entertaining and are the source of funding and business development leads.
