Concept Funder

Starting a business begins with an idea. It must focus on solving a problem in the market. At the Concept Stage, you have an idea and are exploring the feasibility of building a product or service based on that idea. Once you have a basic concept, the focus is on determining whether it solves a meaningful problem and whether there anyone would theoretically be interested in the solution. Your idea should reduce someone else’s pain or give them a concrete benefit or improvement over the existing situation. You will also need to determine how you will build the product or deliver the service, and to identify the target customers, partners, distributors and competitors in your market. Along the way you must refine and develop the product. The more data you collect, the better your analysis, the more refined your idea, the greater the likelihood of success. You must validate the market and potential demand for your product. Once you have your idea refined, you can begin to think about organizing a business.

Concept Funder organizes this process by:

  • Identifying the essential materials of a well-formed entrepreneurial concept
  • Helping the entrepreneur to understand what types of information should be prepared
  • Organizing the resulting files into a well structured environment that will grow with the startup

Seed Funder

The initial or setup stage of a new business or venture is known as the Seed Stage.  During this stage of development, the entrepreneur approaches investors including friends, family and angel investors seeking financial support for their idea, concept, or product.  These investors typically initiate a high level investigation of the technical, market and economic feasibility of the idea in consideration of the opportunity.  If the idea, concept, or product appears feasible, the investor may support the entrepreneur with time and financial resources to further the feasibility effort.  If determined to be feasible, the entrepreneur takes the initial steps in forming the company and developing the idea, concept, or product in this stage.

Seed Funder organizes this process by:

  • Identifying the essential materials of a well-formed entrepreneurial startup
  • Explaining and collecting basic legal and financial documents
  • Introducing the first corporate and employment documents your company will require as it begins to grow
  • Helping the entrepreneur to understand what types of information should be prepared
  • Organizing the resulting files into a well structured environment that will grow with the startup

Early Funder

Following the Seed Stage of a new business or venture is the Early Stage and sometimes it is difficult to distinguish between these two stages.  In the Early Stage, aspects of the company remain incomplete although there is usually evidence of progress in the company’s development.  Typically, the management team is incomplete, the product or service is still in development, or if developed is in the testing stage and has not yet gone to market on a commercialized basis.  If the product is commercially available, it is generating revenue on a very limited basis. The company has filed for but not received any patents for proprietary technology and their product and websites are usually identified as being “beta” versions. It is in the Early Stage that entrepreneurs typically begin seeking funding from accelerators, angels and VCs as their previous funding is typically provided by the founders, friends and family, individual angels and occasionally accelerators.

It is during this stage of development and financing that the requirements of potential investors become much more rigorous.

Early Funder organizes this process by:

  • Identifying the essential materials of a well-formed entrepreneurial startup
  • Explaining and collecting extensive legal and financial documents
  • Completing the corporate and employment documents your company will require
  • Documenting technology plans, patents, trademarks, taxes, processes, government filings and much more.
  • Organizing the resulting files into a well structured environment that will meet the due diligence demands of seasoned investors

Growth Funder

The Growth Stage of a new business or venture generally begins late in the Early Stage and proceeds well into the stages requiring mezzanine / VC financing.  Late in the Early Stage, aspects of the company begin to become more complete and there is clear evidence of progress in the company’s development.  Typically, the management team is more complete and the product or service has gone to market on a commercialized basis.  Enough revenues are being generated such that the company is beginning to obtain market validation for their product.  Patents filed for proprietary technology have been or are close to being issued and their product and websites are offered on a commercial basis.

It is late in the early stage that this Growth Stage begins and the entrepreneurs typically seek larger funding from angels groups and VCs.

Growth Funder organizes this process by:

  • Identifying the essential materials of a well-formed entrepreneurial startup
  • Explaining and collecting extensive legal and financial documents
  • Completing the corporate and employment documents your company will require
  • Documenting technology plans, patents, trademarks, taxes, processes, government filings and much more.
  • Adding more detailed information on assets, agreements and insurance that have been established during the earlier stages of your company’s development.
  • Organizing the resulting files into a well structured environment that will meet the due diligence demands of seasoned investors

Mezzanine Funder

The Growth Stage of a new business or venture proceeds into later “expansion” stages where it typically requires mezzanine or bridge funding.  Such funding is usually made up of convertible debt or preferred shares, which are more costly than common and provide investors certain rights over the holders of common equity.  Mezzanine Financing is typically known as bridge financing because it finances the growth of expanding companies prior to an IPO.

Companies in these later stages of development generally have fully vetted business models, have put in place a broader, multi-functional team, have commercialized their product and achieved reasonable sales momentum and are looking for additional financing to exponentially scale or grow the company.  The objective of the Mezzanine Funding is to add the fuel necessary to accelerate the growth curve of the company significantly.

Mezzanine Funder organizes this process by:

  • Identifying the essential materials of a well-formed entrepreneurial startup
  • Explaining and collecting extensive legal and financial documents
  • Completing the corporate and employment documents your company will require
  • Documenting technology plans, patents, trademarks, taxes, processes, government filings and much more.
  • Adding more detailed information on assets, agreements and insurance that have been established during the earlier stages of your company’s development.
  • Finalizing your due diligence packet with information on liabilities, litigation and turnover
  • Organizing the resulting files into a well structured environment that will meet the due diligence demands of seasoned investors
