FOUNDER'S CORNER

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

 

We are offering you a unique on-demand platform that offers a 360-degree view of modern financing options.  It includes:

  • Our core product, Funding Compass™

  • Our Advisory and Educational services, and

  • Our flagship annual Global Alternative Funding Forum - the only gathering in the world uniting key players in the traditional and alternative entrepreneurial finance.

 

The idea to create a marketplace which features the most comprehensive   range of venture financing topics is our solution to a fundraising issue where many founders are looking for financing venues which are not a fit in the first place – or they are simply not familiar with the existing options that, ironically, might be a perfect match.

It also reflects our aim to spotlight the most innovative and supportive financing platforms and programs that would trigger creativity further and help the next generation entrepreneurs and financiers to fortify their positive impact

 

I hope you will find our services useful and highly valuable. The world is changed by our example, not our opinion – that’s my own mantra. I feel I am on a mission to inspire others while sharing my knowledge and uniting people who, like myself, believe in a life of wisdom, intelligence and progress.

Best,  

 

Victoria Silchenko
