Our Philosophy To Raise Capital

Lantern Capital Advisors believes that our clients should not only understand their business plan and growth strategy, but should also have the financial capacity to achieve it.  Using our unique “out of the box” planning process, we offer insight based on our prior experience helping companies raise capital.

We help our clients quickly develop growth strategies and identify financing methods that can have a substantial positive impact on the future value of the business. Our experience allows us to be creative, fast and cost-efficient…and successful.  We consult with our clients as an ongoing financial advisor in order to realize the goals defined in the business plan long after the capital event has occurred.

Lantern Capital Advisors succeeds in writing business plans and raising growth capital for entrepreneurs and businesses.  We help companies quickly understand their Company’s future value and develop a business plan to make that happen.

WE HAVE EXPERIENCE SUCCESSFULLY HELPING GROWING ENTERPRISES AND ENTREPRENEURS RAISE CAPITAL WITH REVENUE THAT TYPICALLY RANGE FROM $5 MILLION TO $150 MILLION.

Our clients are fast growing businesses held back by limited capital.  By engaging our services to raise capital for their business, Lantern Capital Advisors helps our clients determine their own capital requirements based on the funding requirements of the business plan and growth strategy.

Lantern Capital Advisors secures financing and raises capital for our clients from a broad range of private and public financial institutions.  We help companies find and negotiate business financing and raise capital that minimizes dilution and personal financial liability to the company owners.  We also assist our clients in buying out company shareholders in order to further increase the future value.

 

FAST

We took our financial and management consulting experience over hundreds of engagements, and created a unique engagement process that is superior to all others in terms of time, cost, communication, and client expectations.  Clients always have a clear understanding of where they are in the process, a basis for making good financial decisions, and an ability to start or stop the process with no on-going obligations.  This gives our clients peace of mind, control, and unmatched value relative to any other advisor or consultant.

TRUSTED

All we do is help growing private companies.  We know their problems, and their alternatives, and have referenced clients to prove it.  Further, unlike investment funds, banks, or investment bankers, Lantern is truly independent.  Our compensation is hourly based.  We take no finder’s fees from institutions, and do not seek or accept any equity (or warrant) compensation from our clients.  Our goal is simply to serve the best interests of our clients – regardless of the size, amount, or type of financing sought.


How We Work

COST EFFECTIVE

As fee based consultants, our hourly rates are comparable to a middle market consulting, accounting, or law firm.  Then by combining those rates with our unique engagement process, we are able to get clients market feedback on their financing capabilities extremely fast which minimizes the client’s risk and costs (both in terms of their time and cash expenditures).
