MEET BRAD FURBER


Founder of Aery Advisors

I’m Brad Furber. I’m a seed investor, company advisor, entrepreneur and lawyer who’s been working closely with funders, intermediaries, founders and visionary entrepreneurs just like you during my entire professional career.

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 served as President and CEO of a bootstrapped and profitable consumer Internet software + services global tech startup, co-founder of an innovative law firm for startups and emerging growth companies, and founding business leader of a cross-faculty innovation centre at one of the world’s top 50 research intensive universities.

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. Venture finance is not one size fits all. It requires empathy, design thinking, legal, financial and marketing know-how, strategy, persistence and true grit.

That is what I am sharing in this course.

"

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.

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.

TESTIMONIALS


What other startup founder say about working with Aery Advisors and Brad Furber

Founder of Zemp Business Solutions |
Lucerne, Switzerland | zemp.io

Startup from Switzerland raised $1.3M

When I started talking to the first investor, I think it was the second or the third question: "Can I look at your data room (Due Diligence Locker)". I was prepared. After that it was much easier to get (investors) traction out in the market and I could argue and negotiate my terms how that investment should be spend. That made us more credible.

Brad helped me with assessment of the company, preparing some data room stuff, he helped us to put our company on paper, so that investors get a clear view what we are doing and where they going to invest.

SanityDesk is a CRM + Website Builder/Marketing Automation tool that has all of the systems a small business needs to set up, organise, and grow their business online for a low monthly cost

If I hadn't had Brad's coaching, I'd be nowhere close to over halfway subscribed in a 1.35 million dollar pre-seed round for a pre-revenue company

If you do not get your house in order as Brad teaches, you shouldn't go out and raise money.
What I really learned was that the process and the system of getting your house in order is everything. He has an entire tool kit to help you do that in the venture finance course. What he teaches is critical.

iPromote provides industry-leading display advertising solutions for enterprise resellers to sell and manage SMB advertisers of any budget size at scale.

Brad helped us raise well over a million dollars

If I could do it over again, I would compress the time that we spent in the early years and bring in expertise as early as possible to make sure that you're enlisting people that have that explicit knowledge, that "I've been there before" experience, to help guide you move forward.

I was fortunate that I've known Brad for a long time. I've known him since he was 20 years old and I've participated with him, watching him work all around the world. He has extensive experience in raising venture capital. 

- Gregg Albright, CEO of iPromote

"The printing platform Printify was recognized as the most powerful startup brand in the Baltics at the Baltic Brands Chart Awards Ceremony on 4 October 2019. With $10.5 million in revenue, Printify ranks as the second fastest growing software company in America and the 24th fastest growing companies among all privately held companies, as rated by 2019 Inc. 500."

If you can have somebody experienced like Brad, that is huge because it can save you a ton of money

My advice for all founders: it doesn't matter if it's Brad or anyone else, try to have a mentor that can guide you. And Brad is a really good one.

At the beginning, he was giving us advice on the KISS notes and some things were unclear to us. Obviously, we didn't have that much money that we could get top-notch San Francisco lawyers to explain it to us for $500 an hour. So having Brad on our side and going through those little things that are important at the time, was very, very helpful.

-James Berdigans and Artis Kehris, Founders of Printify.com
