Raising venture capital

is confusing and distracting

70% of funded startups do not go on to raise their next round.

Early-stage rounds often take over 6 months to close as founders scramble to build the conviction they need from investors. Prolonged capital raises are damaging to operations and valuations. We bridge the founder-investor information gap to help founders raise capital faster.

Our Framework-Driven Solutions

Our framework, Traction Science, de-risks raising venture capital by leveraging VC market insight and curated investor feedback to systematically build a compelling traction narrative to help founders know when, how, and from whom to raise capital.


Traction Strategy Sprint

Produce the signals of traction the VC market will expect.


Market Validation

Eliminate probable objections with proactive feedback from select VCs.


Fundraising Support

Plan and implement an efficient investor roadshow.

How It Works

Traction Science shifts late-cycle learning to where it's most actionable: the present. A more efficient raise means founders can get back to business sooner.
