Our mission is to make you fundable! We do that by providing entrepreneurs with a safe and structured environment where they can begin to see themselves in the same light a typical investor would see them. Most importantly, at TVA, our clients can “fail” without incurring the penalty of rejection and lost opportunity. The fact is, 95% of those companies tested by TVA are not deemed fundable (a statistic consistent with what VC’s and Angel groups report!) But, at TVA, any score deemed below the fundability mark is a “No harm, no foul” experience. No penalty is imposed but, the knowledge gained can now be utilized and corrected before it crashes your hopes in a real presentation. The process works like this:
- First, TVA offers two entry portals – the Qualifier (our most basic product) and the second is our full-on due diligence product called the Fundability Assessment. Each has very clear objectives:
- Collect information from the entrepreneur that is relevant to evaluating them as a potential candidate for funding from a professional type of investor.
- Provide honest, unbiased and actionable feedback to the entrepreneur that will help them improve their value proposition.
- Because this feedback is shared only with the entrepreneur, it allows them to reveal a “less than perfect” image without the fear of losing their hope for funding.
