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.
If you’re like a lot of people I work with, 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 help me? And have they actually done this before?"
I’ll be completely honest, starting and growing an early stage company is grueling work, it’s anything but glamorous, and it’s not for the faint of heart. How you get sales, grow, and plan for your growth (including funding) 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, or just plain doesn’t work. I've seen budgets, teams, huge effort and even investment burned with very little to show for it. These are mistakes that cannot be fixed.
The biggest impact happens when sales and future growth is done with the help of experienced, no-nonsense entrepreneurs who know the ropes because we’ve done it before.
