Recognizing & Empowering Entrepreneurial Success

REES Capital Services

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.
