Zempio Case Study

Swiss startup raised $1.3M swiftly in 2021

When you start going through Venture Finance Masterclass it really connects you. I couldn't stop watching, so I watched all the videos because it was very valuable content.

A lot of the things that I learned in these videos help me rethink my strategy, which enabled me to quickly adjust my offer and close the deal.

When I started talking to the first potential investors and they asked "Can I have a look into your data room" and I was prepared. It was a very positive thing. It was much easier to get traction in the market. It was first preparation of 3 months and 4 months of negotiations with investors. All in all, within 7 months we raised 1.3 million dollars.

Brad was tangible, we had open conversations, coaching sessions, I had trust in him because he’s done it, he went through it, he talks from experience, and he has a very huge heritage. You accepted his advice because it worked. It is not a standard class. This is bespoke sessions with him where he focused and adapted his knowledge to my needs.

I would definitely 100% recommend it. I believe there is nothing that cannot be improved so no one has ever got from me a 10, as there is always room to improve, but I would say the experience has been a clear 9 for me.

Over the past ten years, I’ve lived and worked in four countries – the USA, Denmark, Australia and now Switzerland. I understand that each region and each jurisdiction has its own unique culture and way of doing deals. I’ve seen first hand what’s worked and what hasn’t.
