The following are real questions we normally get. Some are born out of a lack of industry knowledge or even common sense. Some of our answers are a bit pithy. We hope you enjoy our sense of humor.
Q: Do you know anyone who might be interested in investing in us?
A: No. Just kidding. We only take on projects where sourcing is sufficient.
Q: Do you think you can raise my capital for me?
A: If you want someone to sell your securities for you then you will need a Finra Broker. We can introduce you. We are a SaaS-based platform that brings issuers and investors together. They interface directly with you, not us. That is the law. They invest in you, not because you use us. As it should be.
Q: I don't want to go through this process, can you refer me to someone?
A: Sure we perform casual introductions and encourage investors to sell their G5's, or luxury homes, to invest in someone we don't know all the time. I mean your deck is awesome!! Grow up, this is the most absurd question we get. If you don't meet platform requirements, have proper legal documentation, and are not upon a monitored platform we won't engage in any capacity. No contract means no further interface.
Q: What's your sweet spot?
A: We like peanut butter and 'nanner sandwiches but other than that we don't have a sweet spot. Investors review the stage of growth, fiscal conditions, risk factors, industry, location, and a myriad of factors prior to investing. Investments are based on what you offer, not our process. Best sweet spot ever.
Q: Can we negotiate a finders fee and have you work pro bono or lower your costs?
A: Of course. We gladly ignore our paying Issuers, ignore established law, and re-write our Attorney reviewed, board-approved contracts to accommodate you. Note: Our onboarding costs are reasonable and personnel such as strategic CFO's, graphic designers, technical writers, and marketers must be paid for their services upon delivery. Plus we don't ever accept commissions. Only a Broker-Dealer can do that.
Q: We would like to talk to a funded client?
A: How does it feel to want? We receive over 15 inquiries a week. Plus our funded clients have nothing better to do but answer all of these inquires and spend an hour on the phone with each of them. Just kidding. First ofall Issuer/client information, as well as funding specifics, is completely confidential. Secondly, we are a SaaS-based model. What works for one client may not work for another. We don't want to be in a position of selling you on someone else's success when that success is based on an entirely different offer. We publish our Founder and CEO's Resume as well as a Press Release funding summary occasionally. See the Home Page if you missed it. It's below the displayed sections. We hope that is sufficient.
Also please be timely and don't miss meetings or scheduled calls without some form of communication, even if it is after the fact.
