Our Process

A well-executed process is essential to achieve maximum valuation and to attract high-quality investors.

Whether we are working on a small capital raise or the sale of a larger company, we bring the same high-level process to the transaction: understand stakeholder objectives; create a plan to achieve those objectives; identify the strengths of the company and highlight them; plan around issues and anomalies; provide competitive analysis, financial modeling, and comparable-based valuations; merge this information into a compelling narrative; identify and approach appropriate investors or counterparties; and execute with professionalism, care, integrity and hard work.

For all Harvard Capital Group projects, it is our goal to roll up our sleeves and become part of your team until our work is done and the project completed to your satisfaction.
