Startups and Entrepreneurs

As an entrepreneur looking to jumpstart your business, or as a startup company seeking sophisticated legal counseling when your budget is limited, you may need a bit more help.  We all received a bit of extra help at some point from people who are now our friends, and at SV Skyline we believe in doing good when we can.  The industry is a bit better because we help each other when it matters.  Here are a few things we can do for our entrepreneur friends and early startup companies:

1.  Fundraising and Debt

We know some of the best investment bankers and some of the top investors and debt issuers.  Let us know what you need, and we may be able to introduce you to the right investors quickly.  We have significant experience engaging directly with investors, working effectively with investment bankers, and running organically a successful investment round. 

2.  Banking

Not all banks are the same.  If you are a global company that needs local support in many countries, choosing a bank may be easy. because there are few global banks  But if you are an entrepreneur or startup, the right bank who gets to know you and who nurtures your growth may be a lifesaver.  Getting a non-dilutive bridge loan at low interest from your bank may one day save your business, and the seeds for that relationship are planted early.  Let us know what you need and we may be able to help.  We know some of the best bankers for entrepreneurs and startups, and not only are they good at what they do, but they are also nice people.

3.  Investor Presentations

Need help with your investor presentation or business plan?  We developed investor presentations and ran successful fundraising rounds, and we have worked with top investment banks and leading investors, including PE and VC firms.  We may be able to help.

4.  Data Room and Due Diligence

Need help to run your investment round?  We have set up, administered, maintained or used data rooms for many successful investment rounds or acquisitions, and we would be happy to help you set up and run a sophisticated data room for your business that projects the right image and helps your investors run through due diligence quickly.
