Attract your ideal investors

Investors don’t want to be pitched at. They want to be engaged, inspired and excited to back you. I can help you secure the offer you want.

How do you get investors to reach for their wallets?

I’m not saying your pitch is bad. I’m saying it probably focuses too much on you, and not enough on the outcomes for your potential investors.

As a founder or CEO looking for backing, you need to focus less on the technical details of your product and more on investor value.

You also need to make sure the story you tell is a global one, so as not to limit your potential audience – especially if you’re looking for growth investment.

Stop pitching. Start engaging.

  • Select your ideal investors, instead of “spraying and praying”.

  • Define a value proposition that speaks to them, and only them.

  • Internationalize your appeal from the start, not “someday”.

  • Create an emotionally compelling story, not just a business case.

  • Deliver your message to drive action, not apathy.

Advisory

Fixed monthly retainer, 3-month minimum, founders and up to 2 other executives

As a founder, sometimes you just need a neutral person to act as a sounding board or source of insight about a specific challenge you’re facing. As your executive advisor, I will be an on-call voice of reason no matter what the situation. I will also help you sharpen up for your upcoming presentations, or help you dissect what might have gone wrong last time.
