There are loads of people who claim to be in the "finding capital" business and may promise the moon - but I advise using extreme caution and due diligence before engaging with one.
1. Any one (besides an owner/officer) of the company who engages in the offer or sale of a security -MUST be a licensed broker-dealer. Paying a commission to an unlicensed "finder" can create liabilities for the company.
2. We've determined that the people (you and your team) are the most important part of the funding decision - especially in early stage companies. Capital sources want to sense your commitment and feel your passion. This isn't easily conveyed by a third party, so you will have to be a key participant in the acquisition process.
3. Since early stage companies are usually seeking relatively small amounts and they may be harder to acquire, a lot of reputable brokers shy away from these situation.
If you want to discuss your situation, feel free to drop me a PM or contact me directly.
All the best,
