RAISING CAPITAL HAPPENS WHEN EXTRAORDINARY DEALS MEET VIABLE INVESTORS
However, extraordinary deals don’t just happen - they're CREATED!
Maverick Entrepreneurs' Academy provides a comprehensive, practical boot camp program to give entrepreneurs a distinct and strategic advantage before going into this grueling capital-raising battle.
Then, once the deal is ready, we introduce our entrepreneur to our global network of viable investors.

HOW MAVERICK WORKS
WE PLAY DIFFERENTLY - OUR ENTREPRENEURS STRATEGICALLY PLAN
AND THOROUGHLY PREPARE FIRST - AND THEN GO INTO BATTLE.
You can have the sexiest and most exciting company in the world, but if you don’t understand what's required to close a deal and the language and strategies of these investor sharks, they’ll eat you for lunch! The investment world is a brutal battlefield! You must understand what investors are doing, saying and how to strategically plan your attack. Maverick's team of capital-raising experts knows what it takes to close funding. Most entrepreneurs think they're ready to meet investors - they want to skip the arduous preparation stage and move right on to trying to get the money. Then, when the "reality-bullets" start flying and they realize that they’ve only brought a knife to a gun fight, they understand the value of preparation.
Over the past two decades, Maverick's team has developed an enviable global network of viable investors who are seeking extraordinary deals to fund. Our investor network knows we set the bar high for our entrepreneurs - that we’ve set the standard of excellence in entrepreneurial preparation that’s identified by our certification seal. We demand our entrepreneurs obtain this certification prior to giving them access to our investor friends.
Our goal is to help entrepreneurs close the funding they seek. We do this by providing intensive training and preparation programs that we call "boot camps." We give our entrepreneurs all the practical coaching, tools, electronic templates and services needed to fully prepare for their capital-raising battle. Then when our entrepreneurs are fully ready, we introduce them to our network of accredited investors via our closed network FIN tech platform and help them close their deals.
FOR OUR ENTREPRENEURS
Maverick offers all entrepreneurs the chance to succeed (from start-up to pre-IPO). What determines success in this capital-raising battle comes down to two simple words: PREPARATION and PERSISTANCE! Those entrepreneurs who do the hard work and complete our "Certification" (by completing their "Due Diligence Checklist" - See below), are then introduced to our global network of 1,000's of real, accredited investors. We call these extraordinary entrepreneurs our "PrimaWarriors."
FOR OUR INVESTOR NETWORK
Maverick provides our investor network with free access to our fully vetted, virgin deals. There's no "catch" to it or hidden cost - our goal is simple: we want to help our entrepreneurs get funded!

Erica Drake, Founder and CEO
I see hundreds of deals - and almost all the entrepreneurs think they're ready to pitch investors. Then, I ask a few simple questions - and I see they're totally lost! However, I empathize with their plight because I was once lost like them. That's why I created Maverick - to give all entrepreneurs a fighting chance at their dreams - to teach them what I (and Maverick's Team of Experts) learned from two decades of hard-fought wars, battle scars and victories.
THE 8-STEPS OF RAISING CAPITALTM
Why Get Maverick Certified?
Before an investor closes a deal and writes a check they request from the entrepreneur a "Due Diligence Checklist" to be completed and sent to them (and likely to their attorney). This Checklist is the defining factor on whether the deal goes through or not.
Maverick's Certification Programs is simple - we give you the Checklist in advance to complete. If you want to raise capital - this is what needs to be done anyways. We've just made it easier with our tools, electronic templates and training. You can go it on your own - but why? It will cost you so much more time, money and agony. Moreover, if you're trying to complete these critical items at the last minute - vital mistakes could be made that could cost you the deal.
Our programs are designed so you can do the Certification fast or slow - it all depends on what you need to get done and the time you devote to it. We don't judge your business model - we simply make sure you have everything completed to close a deal.
However, our real goal is to help you get funded. So, our seasoned team of capital-raising experts is available to guide you when needed and offer you a valuable perspective and advice. Once you've completed your Due Diligence Checklist, we'll Certify you and give you access to our global investor network via our online web platform - called our "CapitalBridge." On this secure platform, you can store your Checklist in your own cloud-based private DD Room and prospect investors directly. Maverick gets deals funded because our entrepreneurs are simply better prepared - and our investors know it!
