We all know Investors are all really busy. On a weekly basis they received hundreds of business plans, investors pitch decks and investment requests. Some of them have staff trained to go through all the documentation while others will do it themselves. Either way, they know exactly what to look for and if they don’t see it quickly they will pass to the next one.
So how can you stand apart in their eyes?
Is extremely important to have well-structured material in a format that is easy to read and understand. All the relevant information that can influence a decision must be clear in both your investor pitch deck and your business plan.
Successfully raising capital doesn’t have to be difficult. Yes, there is a lot of work involved, but all it really takes is diligence, determination, a positive attitude, and making relevant connections that can support your capital raise efforts. With that in mind, here at Localvest, we want to give you an idea of the cornerstones of a successful capital raise.
To make it easy for you, we listed the following 4 pillars to consider under your checklists. This will help you to form the best case for success using the Localvest Platform.
If you are already on the Localvest platform and still don’t know how to create your event. You came to the right place! Our team prepared a short video to show you step-by-step on how to create a new event.
Here are some reasons why you should create an event:
At Localvest we are proud to boast a large community of entrepreneurs, business leaders, and investors who have served our country in all branches of the military. To date, Localvest has helped many veteran-led investment opportunities find capital to hire, build, and grow their businesses.
Check out some of our Investor Groups led by veterans…
The Service Academy Investor Group is a community of Academy graduates who are building wealth through investing in businesses and real estate projects led by other Academy grads. Join the group to discover investment opportunities and share your deals with the community.
In a Covid-world, syndicators complain old methods no longer work. They are looking for a new solution to make investors aware of their offering and be “top of mind.” Maybe to successfully raise capital we need to get back to the basics. The previous era of free-flowing capital may have come to an end, but the same fundamentals have not. Yes, you need to get a lot of eyeballs on your deal, but you need to get your deal in front of those same eyeballs many times.
At Localvest we would like to introduce you a new type of investment, a charitable investment in organizations making an important social impact to their community. When you login to Localvest please look at some of these new types of investments and consider supporting these organizations.
We are proud to announce two new investments on our platform — Afghan Microgrids & Chow. Learn more about these important organizations below and expect more opportunities in the future.
Thanks for your support!
The Localvest Team.
