Whether your company is a startup or at the growth stage, raising capital requires specific knowledge and experience. Positioning your company, business plan, and growth strategy so it appeals to investors is an important step that should not be minimized and taken for granted. Investors see a lot of opportunities so it is important to capture and hold their attention. It is important to raise your project above the crowd. With over 25 years of finance, investment banking, venture capital, and startup experience, I know what investors look for when reviewing an investment. Whether it be in a business plan, pitch deck, financial model or term sheet, well-prepared materials, presented in a consistent, clear and concise manner is important to have in your fundraising efforts. You only get one chance to impress an investor. Utilizing these tools improves your chance of fundraising success. I work with my clients to ensure that their investor materials anticipate and address the questions and concerns that investors may present. Business and startup consultant with 25+ years of experience in startup and emerging company finance in the areas of public market, private equity, and venture capital. Experience in startup business plan vetting and writing, slide deck development, and finance structure. Throughout my career, I have helped a countless number of companies at all stages of development raise growth capital. Previously a co-founder, President, Managing Partner and Director of a regional investment banking firm that specialized in emerging technology and advanced manufacturing companies. Also co-founded a venture capital company that invested in early-stage technology companies. Additionally, co-founded an investment fund that invested in private, pre-public emerging companies.

"Kim is a pro at what he does and an absolute pleasure to work with. Someone before me said that Kim is the guy you never knew you needed and now cannot live without. This is an accurate statement. Kim delivers far more than actual deliverables. He mentors as he goes. I learned so much working with him. He intimately understands the fundraising space.....the nuances, the terminology, pitfalls and how to create and deliver the most impactful story. I love that he was not afraid to challenge my assumptions. In fact, it is the thing I loved most. His honesty and transparency. Truly, I cannot imagine a better experience or outcome. Everyone that has seen my deliverables has commented on how solid they are. Kim went above and beyond and I will work with him again. I enthusiastically recommend Kim!"
