SaaS Fundraising and Transaction Support
At some point in time, every SaaS business goes through a phase of significant growth requiring a SaaS fundraising effort. For some entrepreneurs, the decision is made to avoid raising external equity or debt capital and to support growth through bootstrapping. We typically see most businesses opt for pursuing some sort of fundraising process in order to accelerate growth within hiring for Research & Development and Sales & Marketing, increase digital marketing spend or a host of other potential uses.
How can Cordes Consulting help you with SaaS fundraising and transaction support?
Cordes Consulting provides support for every stage of a SaaS fundraising process. Before raising, we tend to help companies pull together their financial models, build out potential data room materials and make introductions to potential investors and/or venture debt firms. During an active fundraise, we have acted as the internal point person throughout the due diligence process and provide critical support to ensure a successful process. After a typical fundraising process, we work on aligning all growth projections account for this capital infusion and spend significant time working through hiring road maps. Our goal is to be a helpful hand with significant experience in the trenches. Many times, entrepreneurs will let budgetary concerns slip a bit and cash will get burned at a higher pace, so keeping a mindful eye on this is critical as we look to continue operating the business as efficiently as possible.
