Capital Resource Referral
The IRA team and its principals have decades of experience in operating in the funding world. You can put those years of experience to work for you through utilizing IRA’s Capital Resource Services. Your business project will be conceptually Pre-Qualified and profiled against our extensive Capital Resource Database, with over 5,000 unique entities listed, according to:
- Business Type
- Type of project
- Funding Type Sought
And then packaged for optimum impact on the investment/funding community to be distributed according to SEC guidelines. We will then publish your project to those lending and/or equity investing options (including our extensive database of highly respected venture capital resources and contacts who specialize in start ups and mezzanine level financing and referral to licensed securities broker dealers, if applicable) with whom your project matched the investing/funding criteria during the conceptual Pre-Qualification and profiling.
IRA Capital Resource Referral is on a best efforts basis. IRA cannot guarantee nor warrant that any investment/funding source will invest or lend to your project. The decisions to invest or lend remains in the sole discretion of the funding entity.
The “Take It to the Crowd” Process
Times are changing. Investors are more and more looking at the crowdfunding market to help guide them on their investment decisions. More over, millions of dollars are raised each week for both profit and not for profit businesses through the “crowd”. Watching this growing trend, IRA Network has responded by developing the “Take It to the Crowd Process” that provides you with a complete soup to nuts, customized Crowdfunding and/or Crowdsourcing Strategy and Action Plan. With this plan in place, IRA will then work with you in executing the Action Plan, and help you achieve success in raising much needed funding for your business project (Crowdfunding) as well as proving that all important bottom up support for your product or service (Crowdsourcing). Many will try Crowdfunding, but most will not achieve success. The defining difference between those that meet with success and those that do not, comes down to effective preparation and an effective marketing plan. IRA can help you with both. For more information, please visit the Take It to the Crowd page.
IRA Take It to the Crowd Service is on a best efforts basis. IRA cannot guarantee nor warrant the success of your particular project.
Professional Business Plan Review Service
What does your business plan say about your business? How will it be received by investors, lenders, and other potential funding sources? Maybe you don’t have the money to pay a professional consulting, but why not have the next best thing?

While Business Plans are an important facet of corporate fund raising, they are, by themselves, not designed to effectively raise investor capital, if your fund raising strategy includes taking on multiple investors who will passively participate within the business project. What is needed is a “mechanism” that provides the framework and structure necessary for a company to effectively solicit and receive capital investment from individual investors. The IRA Network will help you prepare and develop a PRIVATE PLACEMENT MEMORANDUM (PPM) and enhancement of companies Business Plan to meet SEC requirements for sale of securities along with an opinion letter from a Securities Attorney. For more information, please visit the Securities Document Services page. IRA can provide payment plans for this service.
