In The Investable Launchpad, Entrepreneurs Leverage Advisors, Proven Systems, and Investor Networks to Increase their Enterprise Value, and Become Investment Ready.

×

The top entrepreneurs from across the world have realized that the quickest way to grow their business is to increase their enterprise value by using OPM. Other People’s Money.

The quickest path to growth is to find an investor (or group of investors) who believe in your vision and want to invest their resources into your vision.

So, then why does raising capital have to be so hard?

  • It takes a lot of preparation – and most entrepreneurs spend their days focused on operations, not raising capital.
  • There’s a lack of urgency from most investors to put money into your company.
  • The “maybe” can extend timelines and reduce negotiating power.
  • Companies aren’t very clear in their vision
  • Many entrepreneurs don’t really understand their market and the problem they’re solving
  • Entrepreneurs aren’t focused on building a team, but investors want to put their money into teams
  • Most entrepreneurs are not 100% sure how much money they need, and how they will spend that money

01

Week 1

Vision: We will discuss the vision for the business, and where you would like to see the company go. This includes creating outcomes for each area of your business to make sure we’re not leaving behind any details. When we set a target, we can begin to work backwards into the actions necessary to create success that’s in alignment with your vision for the company.

 

02

Week 2

Financial Story: We will deep dive into what it takes to build a financial model to budget for current operations, and create the story for what the future will look like with proper funding. We will make sure that we’re crystal clear on the key drivers within your industry, and your business model. This will help us better understand the enterprise value of the organization, and the levers we need to move to materialize the vision we set forth in week 1.

 

03

Week 3

Product Grid: We will work with you to fine tune your products, the problems they solve, their descriptions, their price points, and the target market for each of these products. By understanding exactly what problem you solve, and who you solve it for, you are able to fine tune your messaging to maximize marketing and sales efforts.

 

04

Week 4, 5 & 6

Strategy: During this time we will work through the strategic planning aspect of the business. We utilize our proprietary OPA process to refine the strategy, and make it actionable in each area of your business. This is the process that will fine tune the execution plan and will bring us to the enterprise value we’ve determined as the ultimate outcome.

 

05

Week 7

Execution Plan: We will focus on a 90 day execution plan to use as the basis for creating specific action items for immediate implementation. This will help us formulate a list of standard operating procedures that will drive the processes within the business that help increase the key metrics within the organization.

 

06

Week 8

Compiling Investment Collateral: We will focus on developing the pitch deck, as well as compiling all the materials that will go within your dataroom. We will refine your pro forma, use of funds, go to market strategy, and investor messaging to make sure there’s a clear sequence for the investment process. During this stage, we will make sure there’s a strong narrative for the pitch, and an investor list that corresponds to your industry and deal size.

 

07

Week 9

Executive Summary: We will take all of the materials created thus far and develop a robust 5 pager that will serve as a practical business plan for both the investors, and the management team. Once this is refined, we will boil it down to a 1 pager to leverage during email correspondence with potential investors.

 

08

Week 10

Go to Market: During this week, we will be starting the outreach process to investors on our list to gauge interest in the market. This is not a ‘spray and pray’ process. This is executing on an intricate outreach strategy to get investors to raise their hands and say ‘I want more information.’

 

09

Week 11

Pipeline Management: During this week, we will be following up with investors, and setting up initial calls. Managing an investor pipeline is a bit more nuanced than a sales pipeline. It’s important that we’re consistent in our management, and ability to run the deal process in stages.

 

10

Week 12

Recalibration: We will reconvene to discuss what is working and what is not. This is our opportunity to tweak our process, the investment collateral, or the investor list to maximize our outreach efforts. The ability to refine your outreach system will determine your ability to increase conversion rates. This requires the whole team being on the same page.

What are we going to cover during the program?

Each session is dedicated to certain deliverables that help entrepreneurs move through the fund raising process.
Session 1 – Vision: We will discuss the vision for the business and where you would like to see the company go. Based on setting a target, we can begin to work backwards into the actions necessary to create success in alignment with your vision for the company. Further we will dive into enterprise value, and the key drivers for your organization.

Session 2 – Financial Story: We will deep dive into what it takes to build a financial model to budget for current operations, and create the story for what the future will look like with proper funding. May companies have most of this already in order, so we can work from what you have in place as there is no need to recreate the wheel, rather reframe it into a story. All great pitches and investments are based on a financial model that’s based on a series of appropriate assumptions.

Session 3 – Product Grid: We will work with you to fine tune your products and services, as well as their attributes, and the target market for these products. By understanding exactly what problem you solve and who you solve it for, you are able to get focused on your marketing and sales efforts.

Session 4, 5 & 6 – Strategy: During this time we will work through the strategic planning aspect of the business. Through this process we will fine tune the plan for moving forward. In these sections, we use a proprietary model to identify deliverables that will grow the key drivers of the business.

Session 7 – Strategic Plan: We will focus on a strategic plan to use as our basis for creating action items for immediate execution and a gap plan for mid-term planning and execution.  Based on this, we will be able to develop a pitch deck that explains the company, our ask, and how we will use the money to execute successfully.

Session 8-10 – Fundraising: the last three weeks will be focused on fundraising. As previously stated, this will always be going on, however, it will really ramp up during these weeks. Based on success to this point, we will assist in compiling a list of potential funding sources.
