COLLABORATION

I love collaborating with like-minded dealmakers, entrepreneurs and bloggers, whether it be for features articles, videos, short films or other exciting initiatives.

If you have an exciting idea then I’d love to hear from you. E-mail me and include the word COLLABORATION in the Subject Line

Now to the hot stuff …

CAPITAL

Do you have a “wow” investment opportunity for which you seek capital? And I mean “wow”. Have a strong team in place with a solid track record? If so, send me a teaser and if it is a one of a kind proposition then I’ll come back to you if I can help. To be honest, I prefer deals that require north of USD20m of capital. However, I’ll look at smaller deals if it’s a phenomenal opportunity. (Note: I’m afraid I cannot respond unless I feel it is something I can work on as I receive lots of cap raise requests).

Important point: keep in mind that the investors I know include some of the largest and most sophisticated family offices in the world; sovereign wealth funds; institutional investors; and various other deep-pocketed individuals and organisations. They’re sharp and have been round the proverbial block more than once. Therefore, I do not waste their time with silly or downright unviable deals.

Other important point: I prefer receiving teasers from business owners rather than middlemen. In my experience, when there are too many people in the chain the likelihood of doing a deal is slim.

Looking forward to hearing from you.
