HI, I'M GENEVIEVE.
I help high performing entrepreneurs plan, prepare and raise their first round of growth financing. Growth, sales, and how you go about funding it all is not a "one-size-fits all" thing. I work with founders to understand the total picture of their business, their ultimate vision, and the roadblocks and risks in the way. From there, we prepare your businesses to be as attractive as possible to investors. When it's time to start the funding round, founders can step out and raise efficiently, with confidence and poise.
I bring my expertise and experience as an entrepreneur turned venture capitalist, my background in fund formations, and capital raises ranging from angel and VC to loans and other financing options.
There are probably a lot of people offering to mentor you, meet for coffee, answer your emails, and give you advice. But when it comes to giving your dream a real chance for success it's important to ask yourself this important question:
"How much help can they really give me? And have they actually done this before?"
Your investors, how you structure your funding, and how you plan to spend your capital are some of the most important decisions you'll make in your business.
I see lots of well-meaning advisors give advice that cost months of legal work (and lots of money) to undo. I've seen funding rounds burned in a couple months with little to show for it. These are mistakes that cannot be fixed.
The biggest impact happens when growth and funding is planned holistically, with the help of experienced, no-nonsense entrepreneurs turned advisors who know the ropes because they've done it before and mastered it.
The right path is not always immediately obvious. If you would like to learn more about our approach and experience with growth and funding companies, let's talk.
