Fundraising Services

Stratagem’s fundraising process employs several aspects of our sell-side services, and so it may be worthwhile reviewing that section of the website as well. In fact, it’s not uncommon for us to run both a fundraising and strategic partnering process in parallel.

Whether presenting to strategic or financial investors, we use our proven, custom-crafted approach to position your company and its potential for growth. Over our history we have cultivated and maintained relationships with a wide variety of venture capital firms, corporate investors and individual investment funds, and are attuned to their profiles and investment criteria.

Just as with our sell-side service, Stratagem’s fundraising services are laser focused on generating high quality interest from high quality investors. The goal is to maximize your company’s valuation and to expedite deal closure so your company can begin putting the capital to work. To accomplish this, we hone your company positioning and refine your business plan to make them as crisp and compelling as possible.

Expert Assistance vs. Going It Alone

Many companies embark on a fund raising campaign without the help of a third party, such as Stratagem. If you have raised investment capital in the past, then you already understand the significant time and energy that this effort requires, and the unavoidable distraction that results. Either way, you should weigh the savings from deciding not to engage a third party against the potential cost to your company in terms of lost sales and loss of focus on daily operations.

We can provide a great deal of value beyond saving your time and minimizing distraction. You are also able to leverage our expert positioning skills and extensive experience working with the investor community. Our contributions in these areas will likely increase your visibility with an expanded set of attractive investors and accelerate the process as well.

It’s also quite possible that our extensive experience negotiating investor term sheets could result in a higher company valuation. Even a fractional increase would more than cover the cost of our service.
