Tech Founder | StartUp Enthiusiast | Emerging VC Fund Manager
You know, being a founder can be hard. You're constantly trying to validate your idea while facing negativity. Then you finally build that MVP and you're struggling to get traction. Maybe you go through a redesign, maybe bring on new team members. Then you begin thinking about raising capital which is another hill to climb. Trying to balance all of that while having a family, career and being a first time founder of color and/or LGBTQ? Yeah, it sucks. Now, hold your horses! You can do it because I've done it. I'm Marc Ward from Chicago, IL. and I've built a successful startup and sold it in April '20. After selling my company I jumped into angel investing. I can cut a typical check size of $25-50K and now I'm developing my own VC firm aimed at finding those amazing underrepresented and underestimated founders. Let's discuss your startup and where you feel that you need help. Use a call with me as a business strategy session with a mentor (and not to pitch). Here's the other values I bring to your table: - Bootstrapping Ideas - Startup marketing - SaaS Product roadmap - Brand awareness - Pitch deck review - Business strategy - Founder communities - Introductions to other VC's/mentors - and more! I'm happy to share any resources, advice, or connections that might be helpful for you to grow your startup. Let's do it!
