We define "funding ready" as your company being legally, ethically, and procedurally ready to accept investor monies. That includes:
"Everyone" Raising Money
IF TARGETING ACCREDITED INVESTORS
IF USING A CROWDFUNDING PORTAL
If you are fundraising through a crowdfunding portal your deal must be live on the crowdfunding site before we can consider - or circulate - it. Each portal has their own requirements for content.
Care to test your Fundraising Readiness? As part of our Advisory Services we help firms understand the gaps between where they are and where they need to be. One tool we use is the Foodshed Investors Fundraising Readiness Assessment. It is free to use for self-assessment. If you'd like help understanding your results, please see our "Advisory" section.
