    You only get one chance with investors. Why not set yourself up for success? We've helped people raise as much as $100M in a single round! 100% of our clients have successfully raised capital in the last 8 months. CUSTOMER TESTIMONIALS: I'm new to Upwork, but I've worked with excellent founders. Here's what they have to say: - "Your work increased our valuation by over $20M" - "This pitch deck would easily be worth $50K" - "We raised our round, IN A WEEK!!!" WHY WORK WITH ME: Now, this might not apply to you, but here’s what founders I work with tell me: - "I'm too close to my business to explain it simply. People just aren’t getting it." - "I'm an expert at building my business, not storytelling." - "I don't have 60 - 80 hours to spend on my pitch deck." And to make things worse, it’s really HIGH STAKES. There are millions of dollars on the line and founders have to nail it - for the company, for their employees, and for their own financial future. They need to be able to tell their story in a way that gets heads nodding. WHO AM I? For me, there’s no greater thrill than watching founders succeed. I am hooked on creating success stories for founders that enable them to raise capital for their ventures. My team at OPTIO will work alongside you to provide strategy, design, and story to accelerate your raise. INTERESTED? LET'S WORK TOGETHER: - Click the green ‘Invite to Job’ button in the top right-hand corner, write me a personalized note including why you think we’re a good fit to work together in your message. - I'm new on Upwork, so my services are discounted. Let's get started! Looking forward to it!

    My special skill is setting up and connecting easy-to-use software systems that you will be able to navigate and improve yourself. Based on your needs, I can help quickly integrate several incredible off-the-shelf software solutions that anyone (no coding experience) will be able to learn and start working with immediately. I have developed a method of implementation that I would argue is the most cutting edge out there. My work backs me up. WorkFlowJoe dot com I specialize in Business Operational Technology. I dropped out of Princeton in 2015 and built and sold my own technology enabled service company that bootstrapped to $65K/mo in 18 months. The key was implementing technology in a space that had none. Ask me about it if you're interested. I also raised a 500k, hired dozens, was the CEO blah blah and long story short... NuWash.com & NuBrakes.com. Still very close with owner operators but not my job anymore. No I seek out this specific project type. Over the past 2 years I have helped dozens of Business on projects ranging from quick spreadsheet jobs all completely overhauling a $32m/year regional mobile homes distributor with 3 locations for 6 months. Or also a project where I overhauled a 45m year SF Consulting firm in just 5 weeks and nearly doubled their monthly CRM throughput, through project management solutions and automation (salesforce botched the job the year prior)......Or a random one... this one is funny, I built a custom super smart automated google doc that a regional pizza chain with 35 stores uses for automated employee scheduling. I dont even know where to begin with the things Ive built kick ass air tables for. Whether it's sales CRMs, Customer Service tools, document generation, or workflow automation. WorkFlowJoe- it's in the name. My freelance niche is business operational technology. I love thinking about, executing, and teaching people about this type of stuff. I provide a google doc full of documentation for everything that I make. I provide consulting and integration on/of 3rd party software tools to help automate business operations with as little custom code as possible (to keep it cheap). I make platforms that you're able to extend upon yourself when I am gone because we use kickass modern SaS companies that make great products if you know what you're looking for. I have 5 years experience doing this exact thing for dozens of other companies. I can meet with you for free for an hour or two to get on the same page about what you're looking for. I am confident you'll find my experience refreshing and helpful. SaS Tools used: Ontraport, Active Campaign, Kajabi, ZoHo, HubSpot, Sales Force, Front, Zapier, Google Suit, Trello, Stripe, Xero, Quickbooks, Airtable, HelloSign, Toggl, Typeform, Pipedrive, Twilio, Front, SIack, JustCall, Java, Python, and much more.... Looking forward to meeting with you.

Its at 75% because I kept a contract open with an old client for too long not knowing it was going to penalize me. I'm working it out with them. It should be 100% of course Most of my work is refferal off upwork. I look for very specific jobs here. -Website dev -Legal -CRM set up -Software Integrations -Automated Business Logic tools -Data Visualization -Project Managment I am self-taught, articulate, hard-working, intelligent, and helpful. I suggest we jump on the phone and you tell me what you're looking for. I will immediately be able to provide helpful feedback. I've used UpWork many times over the years and wanted to give back... so I made my own Freelancer profile of my own. I am looking forward to meeting and helping you succeed. My personal guarantee: You will not find someone that is a better bang for your buck in software consulting.

    I have 25+ years experience as a startup engineer and executive. I studied engineering and entrepreneurship at Stanford under a fellowship from and mentorship of Don Valentine, the founder of Sequoia Capital. Since then, I have participated in over a dozen startups (4 went public) and consulted with hundreds more. Just in 2022, the companies that I have worked with raised $80M and acquired over 5 million customers. I have in-depth knowledge of the defense, oil and gas, renewable energy, education, fashion, semiconductors, software, government, and many other sectors. My engineering background encompasses mechanical engineering, electrical engineering, structural engineering, industrial engineering, nuclear engineering, naval architecture, marine engineering, fluid dynamics, controls design (Hardware, Software, and PCBs), thermodynamics, risk and decision analysis, 3D CAD and software. I was the head R&D engineer for Northrop Grumman Marine Systems, and wrote the machine-learning-based semiconductor yield enhancement software for several companies, including Applied Materials. Based on my business background, I consult with companies teaching them how to plan their engineering, marketing, sales, management, accounting, and fund raising. I write business plans, proposals, pitch decks, pro forma and help with fund raising. For several years, I wrote major defense project proposals of Northrop Grumman. The business plans and proposal I wrote in 2022 raised $80M in capital. Additionally, I have 30+ years of experience in the construction, power and energy industries, including engine, power plant, and ship design (steam, reciprocating piston, gas turbines, nuclear and solar thermal), waste-to-energy systems, bio-, and syn-fuel production (Green Atmospheric Methanol and Ethanol Plants), hydrogen production (SMR, electrolysis, and storage) for an onsite hydrogen refueling station, and emissions control systems. I have 20+ years of analytical consulting skills with machine learning, data mining, expert systems, statistics, decision analysis, risk analysis, big data, including data visualization.

    Hi there! I'm Maxim, a Product Manager, Venture Capital expert, and Business Consultant. I've led a team as Product Manager at Lendflow, a Series A, YC-backed startup in Austin, TX, was a venture analyst at Plug and Play Ventures in Silicon Valley, and have worked with and advised several companies in fundraising, product management, and more. As a venture capital analyst, I led investments in seed-stage companies in spaces such as sales enablement, business lending, financial infrastructure, and accounting. Throughout the process, I became an expert in quickly assessing startup pitch decks and business models, a skill that in turn enabled me to assist startups going to market and launching products. In my work as a venture capitalist and startup advisor, I have helped companies raise hundreds of thousands of dollars to build their vision. As a Product Manager I launched 5 new products, including a mobile lending application, email & phone communication systems, web application for lending advisors, and a loan underwriting tool. I spearheaded customer discovery, product development, and leveraged analytical tools such as Fullstory to optimize products based on usage and feedback. Some of the companies I've worked with include Braze, Plug and Play Ventures, M Accelerator, Lendflow, Sirius Play, and CourseClout. I have a Bachelor's degree in Economics from the University of California, Los Angeles, and certifications in product management and financial modeling from Linkedin and the Scrum Alliance. I now aim to help startups in scaling their business through: -Fundraising: Pitch deck, Outreach Strategy. We will discuss each of the elements of your business plan and display these in the best manner -Product Management: Fractional PM to build and launch new products, advisory for startup-based product management best practices -Strategic Consulting: Consultation for wide variety of business decisions and challenges I look forward to helping you grow your company.

    Looking to start a business but don't know where to start? Need help improving your sales? Want to expand your business but don't know how? Hi! I'm Garrett, a 5x founder. I've spent my entire adult life (and in a way, part of my childhood as well) as an entrepreneur and worn every hat that exists in business. I've founded companies as a solopreneur, in partnerships and in larger teams. In my various businesses, I've built a credit card processing company into 38 states, developed a franchise model for a resale business, designed and manufactured consumer goods across the world, created multiple mobile apps across different industries, and much more. Throughout these many experiences, I've learned that the best way to slow down your progress is to take on jobs that you're not suited to do. You might be able to tackle everything on your own, but if you could find someone to whom you could offload your less desired or weaker tasks, you can focus on what you do best and exponentially grow your business. Currently, I have some availability to help some other founders to improve their businesses. So if you need some insight and assistance from someone who has been in your shoes many times over and need some help pushing forward or expanding, let's talk about how I can help you. A few examples of how I can help: Sales: You've got a great product/service but need help on how to properly communicate it to your customers. I've knocked on thousands of doors and honed my sales-pitching skills in the coldest of cold call environments to get my businesses running. Let me overhaul your sales process and skyrocket your revenue. - Pitch Development - Sales Tactics - Sales Strategy - Offer Generation Technical: You've got a great idea but don't know how to bring it to life or how to expand your business with tech. I've led the development of multiple apps to create/expand startups and implemented software to automate tasks. If you're not a software person, this can feel daunting. Let's create your tech and launch your business. - Website Development - App Creation - Automate Processes Operations: You're great at the front-facing side of your business but need help with things that go on behind the scenes. I love anything related to numbers, streamlining your backend tasks, and getting the right people on the right jobs. If you love being the face of your business but need help with the operations, I'll set it straight. - Proposals - Spreadsheets - Contractor Communications - Managing Finances Here are a few testimonials regarding my experience: "I started working with Garrett because I was struggling to market my work to prospective clients. Getting them in the door was a constant issue. His sales expertise literally changed my business overnight. Within one work session, he helped me to shift my approach to selling my company and myself and I saw a huge improvement in responses and engagement. He has made it easier for me to get folks in the door so I can focus on doing the work I love."" "I needed a true operator-minded person to compliment my skillsets and Garrett has exceeded my expectations in our work together for many years! I was stressed out and overwhelmed trying to do it all myself and when I trusted him to do what he does best, both my business and I thrived. His work freed me up to do what I do best while he handles everything on the backend." "I have worked closely with Garrett for several years developing and implementing various product and marketing concepts. He has always been a smart, timely and reliable participant as both a contributor and a leader. Garrett is a great partner and team member." "I wanted a business partner for my new e-commerce business, and I knew that Garrett would fit the bill perfectly. He has all the tech, data, and organizational skills that I don’t have, and his extreme level-headed, data-driven, decision-making skills have been such a boon to the business. He has great time management skills, juggles multi-tasking easily, and has a highly-honed sense of urgency. I can’t think of a better business partner!"

    I run Emerging Oaks Capital. I'm an investment professional with 5 years performing investment analysis on Private Equity, Venture Capital, Commercial real estate and private placement deals. I also have experience running publicly traded equity portfolios and producing expert quality research reports on target equity investments. Most of my clients are high net worth individuals who need a partner to help them filter through the influx of deals that come their way on a day-to-day basis, and bring them the deals that best for them. Others are eager to allocate capital and utilize my skills and network to go find investment opportunities for them. Most often this is for clients who want to purchase a small or medium sized business and are looking for someone to help them source, underwrite, and close a deal. Lastly, through my relationships and experience I have developed a service to help new business or real estate owners with the first 3-6 months of operations after they make an acquisition. I produce "operational engineering" reports prior to finalizing the acquisition so that buyers have an idea of what they are getting into and what needs to be done from day 1. A lot of these skills come from practice and cannot be taught in school. I have spent many years making mistakes and learning lessons so that you don't have to!

    I support small businesses and individuals by offering administrative and creative services. I’ve spent the better part of the last twenty years owning/operating multiple successful small businesses. However, recently I decided to slow down and devote a little extra time to my family. That has allowed me to offer my expertise to others who may need help. With a diverse skill set (Type A) and a scrappy attitude (Gen X), I can confidently tackle those tasks that have been holding you back and bogging you down.
