Financing & Exit

Posted on Monday, Feb 11th 2008

If you are a very early stage entrepreneur looking for financing, chances are you need a lot more than help with financing. Most likely, you need help with Positioning, as well as overall strategy. For the moment, I do not have the bandwidth to take these projects on on a pure equity basis. I do offer “office hours” of sorts, which are 1-hour paid consulting sessions. You are welcome to contact me if that is something you want to avail of.

In general, I do not raise money on a pure equity basis. I also do not sell companies or IP on a pure success-fee basis.

Most deals that are stumbling in either way – financing or exit – require pretty extensive strategic re-engineering. To work with such challenges, you need to have the runway to be able to fund a proper strategy consulting project.

If you do, and are interested in working with me, by all means, feel free to email me.

I keep reading your columns now and then in Forbes and elsewhere…And today chanced upon your site…Yes I agree that one needs more than capital at the early stage (learned the hard way!). I wanted to take your professional services/help…Please let me know how you charge…
BTW, I am basically looking at putting up a crowdsourcing platform for org. problem solving process….first aimed at SME companies in India…Fund requirements are not much in the range of $200-300 K…but need marketing strategy more importantly developed..
