BGP Advisors Partners Ruth Epstein and Christopher Smith and Advisor Don Jennings brought their decades of business experience together to mentor a cannabis technology entrepreneur in preparation for his pitch at the recent Arcview Conference in Las Vegas.
Over just a few highly collaborative sessions, BGP was able to refocus the pitch to more clearly articulate the value proposition and business opportunity, and more forcefully present the opportunity to invest.
After the very successful, shark-tank-like pitch, there was a great deal of positive buzz from conference attendees who include accredited investors, mentors and consultants, and even other entrepreneurs.
To such mentoring (and other consulting) opportunities, Epstein is able to draw on years of investment banking with Goldman Sachs, business advisory services with Boston Consulting Group, capital raising, and even her Harvard Business School Training. Smith, with nearly 20 years in marketing strategy, public relations, and advertising for clients such as Nike, HP, and FAO Schwarz, helps bring structure and clarity to an entrepreneur's story. Jennings's sales experience with Oracle, SAP and JD Edwards allows him to provide senior-level expertise in identifying the most compelling value proposition and most efficient paths to revenue.
