Seattle, Washington (PRWEB) December 02, 2015
InvestmentBank.com, a division of Merit Harbor Group, LLC announces the launch of StartupConsulting.com, a website focused on showcasing the company’s unique consulting angle on some of the most promising startup companies. Because most of the company’s work is outside the realm of the earliest-stage startup companies, the company has launched this new site with a focus geared toward startup companies that are post-revenue, but still seeking both capital and consulting assistance to take them to the next level of growth.
Later stage companies that have typically have been around for one or more years, have existing customers and a trajectory that leans toward further growth into the future are the best fit for the firm’s services. The focus away from the earliest, nascent companies helps to filter out some clients that may lack experience--or at least have not yet shown they have the skills to take a company from its initial stage to a proven profitable business.
In some instances, the company will work with startups, particularly those with a hot product or that fit within the parameters for the new Regulation A+. Such startups could include companies with interesting and scalable technology, an existing large user-base, or a business that has thought about going public to raise capital, but wanted to do so using an alternative method. The new law with Regulation A+ allows firms to raise up to $50 million from both accredited and non-accredited retail investors in a public offering. It’s what the crowdfunding industry is calling a “mini-IPO.”
A typical client for the company fits outside the definition of a true startup. In most cases the company works with clients that are profitable and growing with annual earnings above $3 million. StartupConsulting.com branches outside this typical client definition to help service some of the most promising startup companies, assisting them by providing both capital and consulting in their quest toward growth and eventual exit.
InvestmentBank.com is a division of Merit Harbor Group, LLC a middle-market investment bank with offices in several cities across the United States. Like other boutique investment banks, the company helps with buy and sell-side mergers and acquisitions and capital raises. In addition, the company has a consulting practice that helps companies with organic and inorganic growth as they scale. That is, the firm employs in-house consultants that assist in preparing a business for growth and scale before, during and after a capital infusion. Such growth could include the hiring of an internal CFO, more salespeople or assistance with multiple buy-side acquisitions. The recent launch of StartupConsulting.com is aimed at tying together some of the firm’s unique services for growing middle market companies.
