Our 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:

  • Investment - grade business plan ( we make referrals if you need to upgrade it)
  • High-integrity ( permission to conduct background checks)
  • Approval of our contract - Either fix-fee or performance based, always custom per your requirements.
  • Share 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 are for:

    • 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 plan writers.
    • You are much better off if you come to us through first-rate referrals with the industry's top lawyers, accountants and consultants.
