In the current economy, 99% of entrepreneurs pitching for funding are not successful in getting any. This is not because investors no longer have the money to invest, far from it! It is usually because those who are pitching have never been given any proper Mentoring and as a result, their pitch is not up to scratch and investors are not convinced they fully understand their own business, nor is their business plan comprehensive enough to get them to invest.
Since 2010, our aim was to drammatically improve this statistic and so far, our success rate is currently at 75%
The Rockstar Group Private Funding Program
Finally a program that firstly gets entrepreneurs and their business “investable”, fattens up their team with qulaity mentors and then gives them a warm introduction and recommendation to trusted investors who have a strong interest in the industry in which the company is based. Creating the BEST POSSIBLE CHANCE FOR FUNDING TO BE GRANTED.
The Rockstar Private Funding Program is a bespoke service that caters for business owners at different stages of development. From start-ups to SME’s. The program is broken down into 4 modules and depending on where you are with your business will determine, what module you begin with.
Our typical investment size can vary from as little as £20,000 up to £5,000,000.
We offer a FREE Business Plan Review initially, so we can determine the business’s validity to obtain finance. We then come back with our recommendation as to what Module (if any) we feel your business needs. We aim to come back with a decision in 48 hours. Pending on what modules your business plan and pitch requires, once the relevant modules are completed, it will be followed by a guaranteed introduction to investors.
