COPMPANIES that trusted Brad Furber in venture finance matters
WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT US
General Partner @ Andreessen Horowitz
As a partner, adviser, and friend, Brad is fantastic on all counts. I met him as a forward-thinking client (Xeriton under Brad became our first client), became the beneficiary of his valuable advice, business ideas, and introductions, and have emerged as one of his biggest fans...even though he is one of very few people who has out-negotiated me every time! ;) He's quite the poker player. If you have a startup or even an established business, you should get Brad involved sooner rather than later.
VP of Legal at Highspot
If you get a chance to work with Brad, take it. For almost four years I had the privilege of working with Brad and learned a tremendous amount about resolving complex legal issues and running a business strategically and with a vision. I also valued Brad’s professionalism and friendship and enjoyed collaborating with him on a daily basis. Brad hired me when I was a young lawyer, and in addition to being an outstanding manager, he also was an excellent mentor, leader and advisor, providing a solid foundation for me to succeed in my future endeavors.
Investor Network Builder, Founder and Mentor
I had the pleasure of working with Brad in Copenhagen as a founder, investor, and mentor. He brought the ‘Term Sheet Battle’ concept with him from the US West Coast, where he staged a mock term sheet negotiation between a startup and an investor. The local ecosystem loved the program so much that it has spawned a host of imitators in the Nordic startup scene. Brad worked with a number of startups either as founder, interim CEO, advisor, investor, and mentor.

Angel and venture
Meet Brad Furber
FOUNDER OF AERY ADVISORS
I’m Brad Furber. I’m a seed investor, company advisor, entrepreneur and lawyer. I've been working closely with funders, intermediaries, founders and visionary entrepreneurs just like you for my entire professional career (30+ years).
I want to help YOU help yourself by sharing access to knowledge, expertise and networks that will enable you to meet and exceed your venture finance goals and objectives.
Venture finance is not one size fits all. It requires empathy, design thinking, legal, financial and marketing know-how, strategy, persistence and true grit.
I’ve been a strategic mentor, advisor and angel investor in 50+ tech startups, 15 of which have already achieved an exit or liquidity event. I’ve been engaged to advise on more than 150 angel and venture capital financings, more than 50 mergers and acquisitions, and 10+ public offerings.
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.
I served as President and CEO of a bootstrapped and profitable consumer Internet software + services global tech startup. I was co-founder of an innovative law firm for startups and emerging growth companies. Also, I was a founding business leader of a cross-faculty innovation centre at one of the world’s top 50 research intensive universities.
"I spoke to a startup founder with a $400K investment from a local investor. He was planning to spend it all to generate $200K revenue.
I suggested it might be smarter to spend some of it, say $15K, on a compelling venture finance offer that could improve his balance sheet by $1M or more. That’s what I’m talking about – building foundations and capabilities, and selling your dream to investors who can help you innovate, compete and grow."
