The daring ones

“Driving the own company to success and raisings funds the same time is a real challenge. Both requires maximum attention, commitment and flexibility. Good to have GCF as a seasoned “founder’s buddy” aside who takes care of the required documents, micromanagement, chasing investors on a daily base and setting up meetings with them.”

“To bring our company to the next level, we decided to team up with GCF. They guided us straight and efficient through the whole fundraising transaction. Their commitment, access to investors and transaction skills ensured that we found at the end of a competitive process with Fabasoft AG (FBSFF) from Austria our ideal partner.”
Matthias Kraus & Thomas Werzmirzowsky

“The team of GCF did an unbelievable job! They took care of many crucial parts of the exit transaction such as preparing the financial projection, developing an amazing equity story, arranging meetings with potential buyers, doing the valuation exercise and finally closing with Kramp BV (Netherlands). This allowed us to focus on the daily operations and grow our business during this time.”
Markus Kempter & Michael Goldemann

“Selling the company you founded is the thrilling peak after an adventurous journey. Thanks to GCF, the transaction happened quickly, smoothly and to our fullest satisfaction. They were always ahead of all stakeholders involved and proved their cross-border transaction, financial and due diligence skillset while negotiating with Loop Inc. (now Fobi AI Inc., FOBIF) in Canada.”
