How I Can Help You

I can help you with business entity formation, reviewing/commenting on your business plan or investor pitch deck, fundraising strategies, angel/VC investing plan, and self-publishing & book marketing.

My experiences: I’m a partner in a venture investing group with focus on early-stage technology companies, the author/publisher of an Amazon best-selling business plan book and a frequent commentator on small business topics in public media and blogs. Previously, I was CFO for a New York Stock Exchange listed company for which I quarterbacked its IPO. I’m a long-term certified SCORE mentor assisting entrepreneurs starting, growing and in a few cases selling their business.

Comments from my clients include: “Hal gave me and my team great suggestions on things we had not even considered. We left our meeting feeling empowered and even more excited to bring our business to life” Amoy W. “Hal’s questions are focused, stretch me, and keep a bit of levity in much of the rigor of running a business. It is a blessing to have another sounding board.” Scott M. "Great, friendly advice from a volunteer who has tremendous experience and valuable insights. Honest assessment." Mike L.
