Background & experience

We focus on startups trying to run “like a real business”. 

For ventures in our active portfolio, we also assist with fundraising readiness, exit planning, and M&A (as part of regular account management).

Our job is to make yours easier, not harder.  We aim to be as light-weight but effective as possible with you time, and ours.  In doing so, we ask for 2 things:
1. CEO touch base once a month.
2. Join with an intent to leverage outside expertise.

We assign you an Executive-in-Residence, and you meet monthly for 30 mins.  From that, you’ll find big-picture items to soundboard or work on.  However, CEO attendance to these is mandatory.  We’re an “active portfolio”, so you need to be here for a reason.  We don’t collect logos.  Our investors value that we work with coachable executives, that we understand & can vouch for their business, and that we are hands-on, actively involved in helping our ventures become investment-ready.  

We don’t tell you how you run your business, obviously.  But our best fits are those that intend to engage and leverage expertise as they grow.

ScalePoynt focuses on two main areas:
1. Operations.  Experts and playbooks to work along-side your team, and take specialized areas fully off your hands.
2. Capital.  Preparation for fundraising, GTM strategies/pricing to align with metrics needed to raise, and M&A planning.

Our #1 focus always starts with exit strategy, and fundraising.  You need a north star for where you’re heading as a business.
Then we help align your metrics, roadmaps, and narratives around this.
We help you get investment-ready, look smart and prepared for your investors, and have the operations to back it up.

Have a look at our In-House Team for more specifics on our repeatable playbooks and expertise.

Yes, absolutely.  We don’t replace your own efforts.  Our goal is to augment your fundraising with a smaller, but well-curated set of investors and relationships. When there is a good fit, our deals should go much faster and easier than traditional routes.

We have a vision that there is a better way to build startups.  The entire ecosystem could be made so much easier for founders; especially in we raise capital, and how we build scalable operations.

We started as a business by pulling together all the people that helped us build our businesses before — the experts we relied upon.
Our goal is to massively increases the success rate of startups.  We believe that with clearer paths to capital, and more repeatable operating playbooks, CEOs and their teams will have much more time in market — so they you only fail on the merits of your product alone, not your ability or raise or execute.

Our approach isn’t particularly novel.  We take the concepts of Playbooks that every private equity firm uses, the Ecosystem that startup incubators offer, and then combine them in a more founder-friendly way for mid-stage ventures.

We maintain long-term, hands-on relationships with our startup portfolio companies.
For ventures in our active membership (ie. we have active working engagements together), there is no additional cost.
As part of our regular “account management”, we work with the CEO to align not just on the next fundraise, but the full path to exit.  It’s important to fully understand all your “off-ramps / potential future exits” (sadly, not everyone is going to be a billion dollar unicorn).
For example, for a private equity exit in the future (which could provide not only an exit, but perhaps partial liquidity, and growth equity for the next phase of your venture), 
over-fundraising, or lack of profitability can completely kill those options.  You may not want to discard those options too early to over-focus exclusively on hyper-growth and limitless fundraising.
