38 years old, Irish / French of origin, I specialise in raising capital financing for companies.
I bring a different skill set to the table than a typical broker. I have worked as a management consultant for most of my professional life and thus have a good overview of the business side to the companies, and have the ability to understand the full value chain of the business. I have then specialised within International sales for a good number of years, and have exceptional sales skills. Lastly I have been an investor for the past 8 years and understand the issues of ROI vs. risk profiles.
This puts me in a very special situation where I can help companies get ready to meet investors. I know how to find potential investors, what they are looking for, and I help the companies get their material together in such a way as to present to the potential investor what they are looking for.
I have had some success (100%) raising capital for various companies - and in this book I detail exactly what I do, how I do it and how others can do exactly the same!
My passions... traveling and continuous learning!
Br - and good reading,

How YOU can find Venture Capital: A story of how I did it - and so can you
A real story of how I raised capital for a startup business.
This book describes exactly what I did, how I did it and why it is so important - including the single one most important question that has to be answered for the investor.
In 5 months we went through this process that I describe here, had meetings with 11 potential investors, got 2 offers and accepted 1.
This is how YOU can do it!
