2. Writing & Design

Our talented business storytellers get to work with venture advisors with expertise across multiple industries.

We work using a shared, live document, which allows us to quickly iterate on the outline of the deck.

A first draft is usually delivered in 3 business days, and revisions are delivered within 24 hours.

Business Meeting

3. P&L Deep Dive

This is where most of the founders fumble while we help you stand out. Our venture advisors are ex-investment bankers. They can smell bullshit from a mile away. We challenge your assumption to craft an investor-grade financial model for the business.

We keep you honest and don't believe in hockey stick growth. Hockey sticks are better left to the ground.

4. Dry Run

Our venture advisor will help you iron out the gaps. Hop on a call to lay out the pitch script and review your pitch delivery. We simulate a real investor presentation. Our advisors are VCs themselves and they hear plenty of pitches every week. We plan it to the T, so you'll know exactly how to deliver a winning pitch

Our dry run exercise has been instrumental for founders to hit the ground running.
