The Business of Startups
Starting a tech business is exciting. The ideas, customers, tech, building the MVP – this is what founders live for. Yet there are many things that founder’s are generally no good at. Setting up the business, getting contracts right, negotiating shareholder agreements, getting the investor relationships right for the business and finally exiting the business. Yet, these are often the things that go wrong in the journey. Copperstone Capital helps founders get the business of startups done right.

WHERE DO YOU WANT TO START?

I WANT TO

LEARN

I am interested in the Founder’s Hub

I would like to learn more and I am interested in Mentoring and being part of a community that is focused on business success.

I WANT TO

RAISE CAPITAL

If you are raising Capital – either a Family & Friends round, pre-seed, seed or even a Series A, then find out what you MUST do to ensure an optimal exit.

We will help plan your capital raise with you, then prepare the company for a raise and finally help with the actual raise itself 

RaisingCapital is something founders must be actively involced with, but we can coach you and help you along the way.  

I WANT TO

EXIT

If you have an unsolicited offer PLEASE GET IN TOUCH IMMEDIATELY as there are things you need to do to ensure a successful exit.

If you really want to get a top $ exit, then you must PLAN for one. Reach out and we can talk about EXIT PLANNING.

Finally if you are ready to start the EXIT process, then talk to us about how we can help you.

If you are thinking about Capital Raising, then this course is for you.

PLAN YOUR EXIT AND BE IN CONTROL

Not planning your EXIT is like playing roulette, you may be lucky but the house wins the percentage.
As a founder, you can MAXIMISE your return with an Early Exit IF it is well planned.
Getting a great EXIT is like finding a minor road off the freeway when you are hurtling along at 110kph. Without a map you will be past the EXIT before you see it.
Example: Exit for $10m after 3 years is 238% return on your lost earnings, whereas a $100m exit after 7 years is just 107% return.
Most M&A advisors are opportunistic. They research the market and try to find a fit between a buyer and seller.
We are different.
We work exclusively with sellers.
We work to build an EXIT plan that will work for you.
We will tell you if you need to pivot to be able to EXIT.
We want YOU to win.

THE POWER IS IN THE PLAN

Most Founders have a rough idea of what they are going to do to exit.  however many Founders end up exiting because they got an offer.  Now getting an offer is EXCITING.

BUT many times that offer never goes anywhere, indeed the outcome of some unsolicited offers is the transfer of knowledge from the seller to the potential buyer WITHOUT ANY PAYMENT.

Knowing when and how you want to EXIT is part of the strategy, but knowing how to execute is also important, so whether you think your EXIT is tomorrow or 5 years away, the EXIT plan is critical to your success as a Founder.

We have spend many years perfecting the approach to selling, studying what works and what doesn’t, and we have modified the latest in Marketing to be able to MAXIMISE the price you receive for your start-up.

So don’t delay…..
