Mateusz Serotiuk

Mateusz Serotiuk

Startup Investment Consigliere

Poland - Tests: 9 - Portfolio: 3

I’m Mateusz Serotiuk. I help early-stage startups raise funding from investors. Raising an investment round is always a difficult task, that often takes more than 6 months to complete. That time is spent on endless meetings, calls and investor research. And to succeed, you need to grab the attention of remarkable investors, that will truly help you grow. Nothing will make raising investment easy, but, in this case, easier is far enough. Acting as a consigliere, I help remarkable startups raise investment from remarkable investors, by accelerating, streamlining and strategizing the process. I don't just create investor docs, but using my skills and experience I set up an investment strategy that is best for your startup and deliver a vast array of assets you need, such as pitch decks, summaries, financial plans and investor dossiers, to make your fundraising work. I have helped over 50 startups raise $30 million from top investors in their respective markets while also cutting time-to-commitment by 2 months. We did this, because we put a lot of focus on choosing the right investors, getting a very detailed insight into their investment choices and finally putting together investor docs that are structured especially according to the needs of the chosen investors. I'd love to learn about your startup and help you succeed in your fundraising efforts.

Reyndert C.

Startup Business Developer and Internet Marketer

Netherlands - Tests: 4

Dear Reader, My focus is on delivering results. I'm a startup business developer that has plenty of first hand experience with all challenges of startups in early and later stages of development. These are challenges I have faced and overcome: 1. Developing elevator pitches and pitchdecks (I have won a €35k price in a TV-pitching competition) 2. Developing a Minimum Viable Product (Software) on a shoestring budget 3. Early Customer Development Interviews (including getting letters-of-intent from potential customers) 4. Raising seed capital (I raised €190.000 or approx. $250,000 in seed-capital in Europe) including business planning, 5. Product and IT-management (I have managed an on-site team of 4 developers); Agile (Scrum); Design Thinking. 6. Sales (Enterprise B2B): lead generation through smart drip campaigns, social & solution selling, selling to executives in Finance (CFOs) and HR of medium and large size companies (revenue: €100M+). 7. Online marketing: website development (wordpress), SEO (content marketing and SEO optimization), SEA (Google Adwords, Facebook / Linkedin ads), concept development (developing customer persona; identifying a real pain; tailoring value proposition). One of the trickiest challenges I have faced is finding a good product-market fit. Key to overcoming this is identifying the innovators and early adopters in your market-place and develop a relationship with them. These customers will can help you iterate quickly and confirm or refute your value proposition. I'm currently specializing in: Business proposals Business development Bootstrapping & the lean startup Business modelling Businessplanning Preseed, seed and Series A & B funding Conversion Rate Optimization & SEO Growth marketing I'm currently looking for new challenges! If I can help you in one of the areas above, or think I might be a match for a different type of job, don't hesitate to get in touch!
