Speaker. Adviser for startups. Helps with Product Design, Patents, Presentation, Fundraising Strategy, Finding Investors, Apparel, and AR/VR.
Pick my brain! This is for advice that does not fit into any other category, but still revolves around start-ups, new ventures, or investment questions.
Want to improve your pitch and learn about investors expectations when pitch them? I've raised over $2M in our seed funding round and nearly $150K in Angel funding. Raising both of those rounds was not easy and I will teach you everything I've learned. I've won or been a finalist in several pitch competitions. We will cover fundamentals, work on your storytelling, and have a design and content review. We can cover 2 min pitches, 15 minute pitches, and hour long pitch meetings (each one requires a tailored approach).
We all have ideas, but which one's are worth pursing? Taking the plunge to becoming an entrepreneur is risky and should not be taken lightly. We will talk about your idea and I will answer questions concerning what you need to do in order to get your idea turned into a fundable concept. Additionally, we can expand into what you need to do get your idea prototyped, beta tested and or built. This of course means that some ideas may not be worth pursuing.
Angel investors are discovered, not merely 'found'. Seed investors are numerous. Are you having trouble finding and connecting with them? If so, schedule a call and I will share with you the strategies required to not only identify and contact potential early-stage investor, but also qualify them and determine if they are serious. I will use my experience used to raise over $3M in Seed and Series-A investment for me and companies I advised.
You interview candidates, their resume looks great, and you make a choice. A number of weeks later you're wondering "how is less work getting done?!". I've been there before. There is nothing more wasteful than hiring the wrong person.
We will go over strategies to improve your hiring process as well discuss ways to qualify, test, on-board candidates in a way that de-risks your operation.
I highly recommend speaking with Corey for help on design and fundraising for startups. His feedback helped saved us time early on in development.
Corey offered new and refreshing insights into our strategies for fundraising and growth. I came away with actionable steps toward achieving our next milestones. Highly recommended.
