These are just some of our many success stories.
The results may seem easy, but these founders accepted our challenges, remained coachable, and trusted our methods to get the funding they deserved.
KEY LESSONS: story transformation + concise messaging
"Power to Pitch truly transformed my experience presenting to investors. Since taking the program I’ve continued to receive compliments from investors about the comprehensiveness and strength of my pitch. Since taking Power to Pitch I brought in eight new investors and am in conversation with lots more." -April Wachtel
KEY LESSONS: team positioning + product roadmap clarity
Relavo possesses an impressive team, but they weren't getting the attention they deserved. They used too much industry jargon with investors, so we adjusted their team ad product positioning to help them secure over $1,000,000 and counting!
KEY LESSONS: change old habits + share things only investors need to hear
All Yall's Foods has never fundraised before so the process felt very intimidating and he was ready to give up. After we challenged Brett on the needs vs wants for pitching to investors, he secured his first $100k from a strategic angel (and counting).
KEY LESSONS: value prop adjustment + positioning
Allison and Chelsea are an impressive duo. They struggled to showcase the value of their apparel and unique hiking community, so after trusting our challenges - they secured their first $250,000 check and counting!
We work together until we get it right.
We don't kick you out of the program after a set period of time. Once we've helped you raise your entire pre-seed or seed stage fundraising round - you're then officially graduated! There are different struggles from your first investor check to your last - so we're with you every step of the way.
