Prove to investors how brilliant your company is.
Mum always said, “Dress for the job you want.” And fundraising is no different. To impress potential investors, you need to have all your ducks in a row. You’ve got to show just how viable you are as a company. And most importantly, they want to see a return on investment, which is a direct result of clear financial outcomes and projections. It’s a daunting experience from start to finish – especially if you don’t have a finance team on staff – but we know exactly what’s necessary to get the job done and to do it well. Very well.
When it comes to fundraising, you don’t have to learn by trial and error. We help you nail the pitch from the very beginning.”
We make you look good.
To put it bluntly: When it comes to fundraising, it’s you versus investors. So you definitely want a trusted financial partner on your side who has plenty of experience. At Ralston, we’ll create a financial model that presents your financials correctly and is appealing to investors. And we can guide you along the entire fundraising process – from selecting investors to attracting the best investors to determining the platforms in which you should be presenting.
We handle all investor questions.
Trust us when we say investors have a lot of questions. Hundreds, even. And they expect you to respond quickly and accurately. Needless to say, this can take up a great deal of your time, and you still have a business to run. With our extensive experience in preparing pitches and working with large banks, we can take on the overwhelming task of answering all of those questions and leaving investors impressed.
We are thorough with your due diligence.
When you sign a terms sheet at a Series-A round or higher, there’s a financial due diligence process. Unfortunately, we’ve seen companies lose investment opportunities because they either didn’t do their due diligence or the due diligence was taking too long. Luckily for you, we understand the level and caliber investors expect. This is your first chance to show them you’re organized and that you know what you’re doing, and we are very hands on to ensure that happens. Because your win is our win. And we really don’t like to lose.
