Wiss has identified the criteria that investors use to evaluate early-stage businesses. We know what prospective financiers are looking for: In entrepreneurs, in business models, in terms of returns.
We’ve also identified habits and practices of top performers that predict endurance, scalability, and increased valuation among startups.
From there, we built a multi-pronged blueprint that lets entrepreneurs model their emerging businesses after successful ones.
From seed to series A, whether aiming to scale or to sell, Wiss startups are armed with what they need to get to investment. We keep emerging business leaders focused and on track. We educate them on how to speak to numbers and plans. We help them spend more efficiently and approach milestones, customers, and markets more methodically. We make sure they present themselves and their products with investors’ preferences and marketplace demands in mind. We help them dodge unnecessary spending, headaches, and missteps.
Co-founder Matthew Barbieri is an accomplished CPA and advisor who’s seen too many entrepreneurs abandon their strengths in order to focus on financials – with dire results.
“Often founders of companies say things like, ‘I’m a brilliant data scientist, but I don’t know how to run a company.’ Or ‘I’m a really good engineer. I just never ran payroll before.”
