BUSINESS CONSULTING SERVICES

Capital & Finance ("Creative Capital")


We are multidisciplinary business people who can creatively figure out how to best finance and capitalize your company.  We come from backgrounds in finance, banking, capital markets, and investing.  Both investors and company management are our clients and colleagues, and we are able to bridge any gaps between the different funding sources and the company management teams.

                      

We know and understand the nuances of the funding landscape whether it is 1) equity (family offices, angel investors, venture capital, private equity), 2) debt (lines, loans, convertible notes, etc.), 3) alternative financing (factoring, crowdfunding, public markets, etc.), 4) grants, etc. or 5) a combination thereof.

                              

We emphasize flexibility and work to obtain realistic and appropriate funding sources.  We have helped many clients obtain interim short-term financing to bring immediate capital into the company as the longer term financial partnerships are being worked out, which often take time.
