OpenUp: BoomStartup’s SPV Service

BoomStartup is a unique accelerator, in many ways. One in particular is how we prepare companies for funding and also how we close funding for them.  Join this webinar to learn more about how BoomStartup helps founders prepare for the capital raise experience, and how we leverage SPVs to find the right set of investors to participate in the round.

Avoiding the first big mistake – A messy and big capitalization table

Institutional investors require a clean cap table. However, many entrepreneurs take money directly from many small investors causing an administrative nightmare and an unclean cap table. BoomStartup uses Assure’s Glassboard to quickly and affordably spin up an SPV and organize similarly sized and similarly positioned investors in one structured vehicle, keeping your cap table clean and preparing you for an institutional fundraise.

This webinar will cover

  1. BoomStartup’s AmplifyUp program and how our fundraising approach is different
  2. The basics of an SPV and how Assure services helps BoomStartup, founders, and investors in this (and future) fundraising experiences
  3. What you need to know as a founder if you bring investors into the SPV round
  4. What to expect when using an SPV and BoomStartup as your investment round organizer
