I love phone calls like that!

I just got off the phone with another one of the entrepreneurs that has successfully raised investment capital through FundingUniverse and, let me tell you, there is nothing better!  It’s so much fun to hear their unique story and hear about their learning experience.

With this company in particular, they participated in one of our SpeedPitching events last summer.  They met a significant group of investors that were interested in their plan, and were even invited to pitch in front of one of the angel groups.  After their pitch (to the angel group), they realized that they were not ready to move forward with an investor and went back to their preparations.  After about 6 months of working on their company, financial projections, and business plan… they are now back on the “fundraising trail.”  They have already raised a significant chunk of their total amount and will be pitching again in front of the same angel group within a month (to finish the round).

Anyway… if you want to make my day, give me a call at FundingUniverse headquarters to tell me your success story!
