This exclusive gathering of active angel investors, early stage capital fund managers, venture capitalists, small business investors, capital investor, and private equity investment firms; can provide a highly effective and prestigious setting for your company to deliver its vision to an audience of well-qualified capital sources.  If you are not yet funded and want to accelerate the process, this could be an ideal opportunity. As only a limited number of Presenter slots are available, it is recommended that companies apply as soon as possible.

The investor venue created at this forum can significantly reduce your cost of finding capital as well as the time necessary to raise it, particularly in this current market with fewer active players and tougher investment criteria.

We've taken the guesswork out of it and help you to overcome the three most difficult challenges of the entrepreneur:

1) Identifying qualified capital investors,
2) Gaining credible introductions to early stage venture capital investors and
3) Meeting small business investors under favorable circumstances.

Moreover, the event drives the single most important factor in getting funded quickly, that is ability to create contemporaneous interest among investors, which can also serve to significantly improve deal terms.  
To assist in evaluating the program, review Portfolio Companies and Actual Investments, where you can also view the forum's successes. LAUNCHfn offers a variety of venture capital consulting services packages that will meet your budget needs and tailored to the amount of access to small business investors you need to kick start or complete your funding round.

"Thank you ...for arranging for me to meet with ...potential investors"

Thank you very much for working with me on our business arrangement and for arranging for me to meet with such wonderful potential small business investors. Erik Walker, Founder Nu-Energy

"...I recommend companies in early stage or, high growth companies who would need funding."

I have known Karen Rands, President of LAUNCHfn for last three years. Her company helps early stage companies get funding, starting with the business plan review process.  Some of my clients got their funding through LAUNCHfn and I recommend early stage or high growth companies who are seeking to find angel investors and early stage venture capital. Sanjib Mohapatro, Owner, EMTechPro, Inc., Consultant to Network of Business Angels and Investors

"Through her efforts coordinating her deep stable of contacts, putting people with money in the room with those looking for it, she's making it happen!!!"

Karen is an energetic, enthusiastic "go-getter." She's tremendously persistence and visionary. It takes a great deal of magic to put deals together. Through her efforts coordinating her deep stable of contacts, putting capital investors with money in the room with those looking for it, she's making it happen!!! Mike Skrynecki, Wealth Manager,

"Thanks Karen. You really have the formula for success for entrepreneurs from the prep work to the follow up after the event!"

Your firm provides more thorough investor feedback then I got from the the last two venture forum I paid really big bucks to be involved. I will send each investor the ES and presentation and schedule a time to speak personally with those that requested to do so. Thanks for creating such a rich environment for me to tell my story. David Gardner, VenueGen,

Additional programs
give companies exposure to early stage capital,  small business investors, angel investor networks, capital investors, angel groups, early stage venture capital firms.  Exposure and follow-up are the keys to raising capital.

Kugarand Theory of Investing
is based on a formula for success.  For every angel investor that buys a unit of your offering, you need to have three small business investors considering it and engaged in some level of due diligence.  To have three potential investors seriously consider your investment opportunity, you need to have at least 15 small business investors exposed to the opportunity.  Events, videos, and other programs increase your likelihood of getting the investment you seek.

The purpose of the business plan review application or qualification step, is to identify business model flaws and provide an early stage capital funding strategy and other venture capital consulting services for companies raising venture capital or who want to find angel investors. Our review process identifies obvious obstacles to funding such as: 

 Incomplete financial and/or business plan (market/sales strategy, operational information, barrier to entry not established)
Complex or confusing message within the capital investor documents regarding business model or angel group investment opportunity
Structure of the offering, perceived cost of the investment relative to a high valuation or unclear exit and return to the small business investors
Inexperience or incomplete management team, and/or attitude of management conveying a sense of entitlement or resistance to advise & counsel
Specific industry focus or niche marketplace that limits the potential number of small business investors and access to early stage capital
