specialty is to develop new businesses in new markets. Since 2000,
we have experience in venture capital consulting through our network
of over 200 individuals and 150+ professional investors, and business
development services via our multiple partners and contacts. We
receive hundreds of business plans because we are:
1) High integrity: We only take customers that we believe
we can assist.
2) High Value Add: Our experienced management team works
with select few customers, and uses our proprietary methodology
for business plan development, created for us by McKinsey &
Co., and personal investor contacts to further your business.
3) Non-exclusive: If you get funded through your efforts
or someone else's, we do not expect compensation.
4) No Up-Front Costs: There are no "hidden" costs.
All expenses are pre-approved by you. However, we may request
a marketing escrow account to insure your commitment.
5) Active Investor Network - Over 350 active investors,
either accredited individuals or professional venture capitalists,
willing to invest in Florida. We provide them with deal flow through
our quarterly investment opportunity brochures and our investor-entrepreneur
networking meetings ( breakfasts or cocktails ). We have qualified
the investors for you; you just have to sell them your concept.
6) Performance Based: We share our performance
metrics, the latest posted on our site.
However, we are very selective and only choose less than 1% of
the business plans received to present to our investor base. Since
we have become more selective since 2002, we have actually enhanced
our statistics significantly. We require from entrepreneurs:
- grade business plan (
we make referrals if you need to upgrade it)
( permission to conduct background checks)
of our contract - Either fix-fee or performance based, always
custom per your requirements.
any publicity expenses for investment brochures or investor
meetings, if any, and always pre-approved. Never a hidden charge.
We may request a marketing escrow account of $1000 to $5000.
SEND US YOUR BUSINESS PLAN. IF WE BELIEVE WE CAN HELP, WE
WILL CONTACT YOU. If you do not hear from us, it is safe
to assume that you need lots of help. Since we are a high integrity
firm, we do not solicit directly. So if you wish to receive
honest and professional advice for your venture, please contact
us directly for a quote to get you closer to funding and success.
Your best chances of success
- Early stage & expansion
stage ventures (must have some revenues and customers to prove
concept), seeking from $500,000 to $5M. If you are looking for
seed capital (pre-revenue), consider bootstrapping your resources
and tapping into personal credit, family and friends.
- We are looking for profitable
business models with large growth markets, beneficial competitive
landscape, sustainable competitive advantage, capable and complete
management teams, proof of concept validation, reasonable valuations
and established exit strategies. If your venture is not ready
for the above, then consider first our venture consulting services.
You only get one chance with any investor.
- You must have a professional
"investment-grade" business plan, or at least, the
willingness to obtain one. Two page executive summaries will
have very limited success in raising capital. You may wish to
consider our optional Business
Plan Analysis if you desire to have a detailed review
and response from us. We will gladly refer professional business
- You are much better off if you
come to us through first-rate referrals with the industry's
top lawyers, accountants and consultants.
