The program has two optional Phases based on a candidates investor readiness. Companies with investor collateral meeting standards can opt-in for Phase II only.

PHASE I: Investor Collateral Scrub with CAP Table Modeling to determine the minimum valuation criteria (Members, Revenue and EBITDA) to hit the investor ROI expectation with full dilution. The delta between the Operational Plan and the Investor Plan represents the Investor upside return potential
PHASE II: To provide the capital raise leadership and management on a fractional basis to include valuation and terms research, plus design and assembly of the resources required to execute the raise to insure full compliance. Managing the actual capital raise, with today’s standards, is often beyond the scope of today’s CFO, legal, accounting firm and/or local broker.

Also, the equity raise process is one that, in today's environment, exceeds the reach and resources traditionally offered by legal, brokerage, organizations, co-working space/accelerators, universities and often the skills of many entrepreneurial teams.
