Graham’s eBook:

The Venture Capital MasterClass: everything you always wanted to know about raising equity capital … but until now, you had no one to ask

Hello, Graham here. I know you’ve come here to learn a little more about my eBook on raising equity capital. I won’t bore you with a sales barrage. I just want you to think about this scenario:

You’ve got your new ‘state-of-the-art’ product fully developed, it all works perfectly, you’ve done some market testing and customers seem to like it, now you just need some expensive machines, tool them up, start filling your warehouse, get some top marketing and sales people and sell, sell, sell!

Uh, oh! A big problem suddenly hits you in the eye! You haven’t got enough money to produce your product in quantity and put it into the marketplace! You didn’t put any money away during your product development phase for the rainy day. Well, the rain has just started pouring. This is terrible, you think. What shall I do?

Well, you have two options. The first is to personally contact me. My consultancy focuses on helping companies like yours to raise equity capital. But really, what’s the point of talking with me when you don’t know anything about what’s involved? It makes sense to learn a little bit about the process before you start because equity raising is an area in which you can easily get into a lot of trouble. Equity raising is a highly-controlled activity that is closely monitored by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission. You never want to get offside with those guys!

Or, in the alternative, you can purchase and read my eBook, which is all about how I will help you to lawfully raise equity capital to expand your business without you incurring very substantial upfront fees and expenses that can easily exceed $100,000. With this option, when you do talk to me  about raising equity capital, you won’t appear to be an uninformed dork who knows nothing.

You don’t need me to tell you which is your best option here. Why not get your copy now.

But if you need convincing, just look at the eBook’s Table of Contents:

There are 29 chapters and 350 pages of knowledge, knowledge, knowledge, information, information, information!

Crooks, cheats, scammers and swindlers: beware the dark side of equity raising

If that list of chapter headings is not enough to whet your appetite, I have included three actual case studies of crooks, cheats, scammers and swindlers who put the hard word on my clients, hoping to cheat a large dollop of money from them and quietly disappear. Two of the scams failed because I was on the ball, but one succeeded. It succeeded because the client would not accept my advice that the deal offered by the scammer sounded dodgy, looked dodgy and, as it turned out, was dodgy.

Beware the dark side of equity raising. There is a dark side to equity raising because the venture capital industry, with it’s emphasis on financial deal making and the availability of persons often desperate to raise capital, is like a magnet for crooks, cheats, scammers and swindlers. These crooks, cheats, scammers and swindlers are the reviled cockroaches and rats of the venture capital industry and like their namesakes, they must be eliminated.
