The Meaning of REALIZE...
We help growing companies realize their potential. Our philosophy is based on the meaning of REALIZE….
1) To comprehend… 2) To make happen...
We believe 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.
We passionately believe we are the BEST financial advisor to growing private companies because we are fast, trusted, and cost effective.
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.
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).
Capital Raising Process
Lantern Capital Advisors uses a proprietary planning process to help companies quickly “Explore What If” then raise capital to make it happen. Our capital raising process delivers consistent result and offers clients a unique combination of experience, objectivity, and value.
Experience - All we do is help growing companies explore, plan, and execute business and financial strategies to realize their potential. We know the financing sources well. We connect with them early in the process which allows us to consistently meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.
Objectivity - Fees for most corporate finance advisors are determined by the strategies or products they recommend. Lantern Capital Advisors works on an hourly consulting basis to raise capital, so clients can always trust our advice and independence because we have no financial incentive to recommend one product, strategy, or financial firm over another.
Value - Our proprietary planning process to raise capital is highly effective and delivers consistent results at a fraction of the cost of our competition.
