Cory Cleveland, President, Creative Return
For the better part of a decade, I’ve helped navigate over $50 million in early-stage pre-public and public financings. I have seen this capital fuel dreams and ignite the teams that endeavor to build incredible things. This passion has taken me from the streets of Mumbai to the boardrooms of New York. No matter where I went, I recognized that those who delivered a consistent and compelling investor narrative stood out from the crowds. That is worth repeating… those who delivered a consistent and compelling investor narrative stood out from the crowds. I’ve experienced the fulfillment (and relief) of closing successful financings and the excitement of watching the value of a company rise on the market. I’ve also experienced the stress, sleepless nights and enduring pain of losing a company because we weren’t able to raise sufficient capital. CEO’s with remarkable teams and good intentions should never have to live through this stress.
