How to Raise Capital

Raising Capital Financing for Businesses & Commercial Real Estate

May the odds will be ever in your favor.

Raising Capital Requires Math Skills

Like all of life, all of business involves measured risk-taking where the only guaranteed outcome is of course, death. Everything else is a mathematical calculation that we make consciously or unconsciously – yet we make these calculations constantly.

Raising capital requires calculations – calculations of the probability of success, calculations of cost, calculations of gain, and calculations and still more calculations. As you can see from the graphic above, the “old” method of going from bank to bank (or investor to investor) has some pretty long odds that you are not likely to overcome. Chances are that you are reading this webpage because you have already realized this fact. So what’s to be done?

Raising Capital in the New Capital Markets Construct

Raising capital financing in the new capital markets setting created by the November, 2020 rule change is for companies, entrepreneurs and developers who think bigger.

The new rules are designed to create leveraged financing opportunities that work on transactions primarily in the range of $10 million to $75 million.

The 21st Century Approach to Accessing Capital Financing

The question for you is whether or not you can create a business plan that scales up based upon these realities (talk to one of our consultants and find out how to make your business opportunity scalable).

Capital Financing Accelerator Program

The INVIZEN approach is to provide a systemic solution developed specifically to address the new capital markets opportunity brought about by the recent rule change.

Funding Program Execution Schedule Expectations

The program is designed around an expected 16-week campaign to close the initial round of funding (with a minimum expected probability of funding occurring at Week 11 and maximum expected probability of funding occurring at Week 23). Talk to one of our consultants regarding the assumptions and calculations that went into creating this schedule.

Expected Funding Out-of-Pocket Costs

The maximum expected out-of-pocket pre-issuance cost estimate is approximately $400,000, with some spending as little as an expected $275,000 and some spending more and actually failing (there are no guarantees, but the probability of success is only exceeded in the capital markets by the full-blown Initial Public Offering approach).

Support, Documentation & a Systemic Approach to Obtaining Capital Financing

Capital financing for small businesses, medium-sized businesses and commercial real estate developers has been made a whole lot easier and more reliable as to the potential outcome as a result of the SEC rule changes. Regulation A offerings (including Crowdfunding – also referred to as “Regulation CF“, “Reg. CF” or “CF”) and Rule 506(c) offerings provide the issuer with the ability to utilize public advertising (e.g.: radio, TV and social media advertising) to market and sell their securities under strict rules and requirements.

The INVIZEN Business Accelerator focuses on supporting these opportunities by providing a systemic approach grounded in years of underwriting experience and broad securities compliance expertise. More than an incubator and more than the typical accelerator or mentoring program.
