Many young companies in the idea or startup phase simply cannot afford to hire a team of seasoned executives. Instead, entrepreneurs turn to people they know and trust - often friends or family - who are willing to take a lower salary and share the risk in order to achieve the rewards that equity can bring. In fact, this is often the only option entrepreneurs have for building an executive team while in a startup mode. There is a great energy that comes from having a team of executives who are passionate enough to put their skin in the game - a team that is willing to take an idea, believe in it, develop it and create a business around it. What better way to empower these entrepreneurs then by giving them access to a team of seasoned advisors who can provide guidance that will help them to take their growing business and turn it into a thriving, profitable company?
REES Capital provides just that. We have been there. We have walked in the entrepreneur's proverbial shoes and have been through the struggles of learning things for the first time. We have been that team that didn't know what they didn't know until we learned it the hard way. We have been through the bumps and the bruises; the endless hours and sleepless nights; the fears of being able to make a payroll; the challenge of trying to write the perfect business plan; the battle to get investors to put their faith in them; the pains of hiring and firing and trying to assemble the perfect team; the efforts required to take a new technology to market; and the stress of scaling a business from 50 people to over 1,600 people - we have been through it all, we have learned the lessons, and we came out on the other side successfully. We took a small startup company that was losing hundreds of thousands of dollars a month and turned it into a $377 million dollar exit. Now we want to take everything we have learned and use it to help others.
REES Capital's team is here to help entrepreneurs. We will help them grow their business and take it to the next level. Our services include ADVISING and ANGEL INVESTING our own money to help businesses thrive.

At REES Capital we Recognize & Empower Entrepreneurial Success!
In Partnership with the IPOP Foundation, mentoring services may be provided. We would meet with you to talk through your idea or business and offer advice and input, and suggest ideas for what direction we feel will be most successful.
As an advisor we provide time, expertise, and connections, as well as opening doors and making introductions to potential investors, clients, and service providers. This service is performed for a combination of cash and equity that is equivalent to hiring a single seasoned executive with the benefit of utilizing our entire team.
We are looking to angel invest our own capital into promising companies with investment size ranging between $25,000 to $2 million per investment.
