How I can help you

I can help entrepreneurs identify their business problems and potential solutions, for both new and ongoing businesses.  I have experience in scaling a business, creating new lines of business, pivoting business model to optimize better solutions and finding a variety of sources of funds.  I have weathered economic distress.  I have worked or pitched a presentation to VC's and Angel investors.  My most recent small business has raised over $2 mil in equity, $750k in debt and line of credit, along with a $300k grant.

I am a Maine entrepreneur.  I have worked with MTI to gain a developmental grant loan for $486k.  I have worked with FAME to create $100k of  convertible debt where the State of Maine pay our investors a 12 interest payment per year for the first 4 years.  I have submitted and received grants from MTI for special projects.  My company works with the University of Maine to collaborate on research.  My company has co-invented 3 approved patents with UMaine staff.  The University of Maine has a minority interest in our equity ownership.

I have worked with many small business and start ups to manage and project their cash flow, or get them ready for bank loan applications.

I have been on boards of publicly traded and private entities.  I am currently the finance chairman of the Hyde School Board of Trustees.
