Has chasing capital become your new job?
You should be focused on closing deals.
Wherever I see people doing something the way it’s always been done, the way it’s ’supposed‘ to be done, following the same old trends, well, that’s just a big red flag to me to go look somewhere else.Mark Cuban
Shark infested waters.
We’ve been in this business long enough to know the fundraising landscape for early stage founders: it’s not great.
Today’s founders find themselves in a hostile environment, surrounded by brokers and consultants who want nothing more than a slice of your company – or your raise – and they’ll promise the earth to get it.
There are bad actors and bad terms – deals that are disadvantageous for founders and others that are just time-wasting solutions.
We’ve seen monthly retainers as high as £4,500, with 10% success-fees split between the cash and the transacted equity.
The worst actors charge this, then do nothing more than skim review your pitch deck and spam an investor database.
We think that’s pretty messed up, so you won’t hear us rambling on about brokers or even success fees.
Empty jargon is not our thing. We prefer a practical and straightforward approach.
Prepare the deal, target the right investors and accelerate your capital raise.
Closing is what matters most, not a checklist.

Better fundraising designed for founders
Our platform is the easiest way for founders to manage their own deal, raise capital and connect with investors in private.

Do I qualify and am I ready?
Investors want to see businesses who are prepared for investment.
If you’re considering raising capital, it is important that you understand the right questions to ask, the routes to investment, and that you tick all the right boxes for your investor.
If you’re not yet ready to raise, you can to join our fundraising bootcamp:
Preparing your business for Raising Capital.
RAISE is designed for founders who can answer yes to the following statements.
- You have a registered business with a clear plan and presentation which tells investors how you intend to grow your business.
- You have an honest handle on your financial plans; both how much money you need and revenue projections for the next 3 years.
- You understand your company structure and what share of the business you plan to give away, as well as any additional value you expect from investors.
- You acknowledge that it is the founders job to close funding rounds, and you may still require independent legal and financial advice.
While we still think that main person to raise capital for your startup is you, the founder, we believe our platform can support you to move better and faster.
