You’ve been banging your head against the wall for months – perhaps years – looking for capital, but you can’t seem to be getting any traction.  And whenever anyone expresses any interest in talking to you, you stumble your way through a very awkward discussion of terms for which you haven’t the slightest idea about.  Worse, the business needs your undivided attention, but fundraising is pulling you in too many different directions. If only you can “outsource” this function to a trusted and well-connected advisor .

Come join us as we discuss the pros and cons of hiring consultants, finders and broker-dealers to help you raise capital.
