You want to make a difference in the world.
We want to help you make that difference.
Hi, I’m Nicole Toomey Davis, MBA and I’m a successful serial entrepreneur, experienced Corporate Director, professional speaker and startup and CEO coach.
If you’ve made it this far, I know a couple of things about you. You are a technologist or entrepreneur who is talented, experienced and you have a vision to change the world in some way. You know that deep technology or big changes don’t just happen on a few weekends, and that to make the kind of investment needed, you need funding.
If you’ve been around the block at all, as I have, you also know that investors aren’t funding deep technology like they used to. Venture Capitalists used to fund technologists and then help build a team around serious innovations that changed the world and the technology landscape. But that’s not the case very often anymore.
Increasingly VC’s fund the slick talker, the hand waiver, the person who says “it will be worth billions”, even if all they are doing is developing more sticky ways for people to waste time.
At the same time, high-end angel investors might be interested in your vision, but unless they are already experts in your specific field, they will quickly they decide they don’t know if you can “really” make it work, and of course decide not to invest until you have “proven you can do it!”.
But you’ve got a vision, you want to make a change in the world, and you still need funding, what should you do? As fellow entrepreneurs and technologists who also want to make a difference, to help other entrepreneurs, we, the team at VentureWrench, can relate.
