We will have a panel of local and out-of-town investors focused on pitching to early-stage investors, and what it really takes to get them to write you a check! We will be discussing the things that are most important to them when they are considering an Investment, the best and worst things an entrepreneur can do to get their attention during a pitch, and, of course, the best ways to reach these and other Investors.

Your business plan on steroids

As you can imagine, our organization sees a lot of business plans – good and bad ones.  The ones that stand out to me are the ones that concisely state their business model and do so in a simple format.  I am not talking about the formats that look like they paid a huge sum on graphics designers, I’m talking about the ones where they know the key performance indicators of their business, they’ve planned their progression and they show the goals associated with that progression.

The article “18 Ways to Make Your Financial Model Stand Out to Investors” by David Teten seems like he is of the same thought process that I am.

Also, while you’re reading articles, I found this article “How to do guarantees right. And how we grew a business by 49% by adding a guarantee.” by the Conversion Rate Experts website.  This is something that one of Rhodes Holdings LLC’s sister companies, Online Sales Juggernaut, is dealing with right now.

Funding

Lately, Rhodes Holdings LLC is doing a great deal of funding, but not public companies – private companies.  We have a sister website, Key To Funding, that is making great progress in bringing in new clients.  We have done a number of fundings in the past three months – equipment leasing, factoring (including spot factoring), acquisition financing, and other formats.  We’re very excited about our progress.

American Equity Fund LLC announces Robert C. Rhodes appointed Managing Member

Sugar Land, Texas (September 5, 2012) – American Equity Fund LLC (“AEF”) announces today that its founding member and Rhodes Holdings LLC have come to the conclusion of negotiations to name Robert C. Rhodes of Rhodes Holdings LLC as managing member of AEF.  Working as partners on a number of projects together, Rhodes Holdings LLC and ReCap Marketing & Consulting, LLP (Hunter M.A. Carr, founding member and general partner) determined their interests aligned perfectly on what was missing from the arena that both worked – micro-cap publicly traded companies.  This missing component was non-death spiral funding.

This announcement follows more than six (6) months of review of previous funding(s) that Rhodes Holdings LLC and ReCap Marketing & Consulting, LLP have been a party to, as well review of competing equity line facilities in order to construct an AEF equity line facility that will only enhance shareholder value.

About American Equity Fund LLC

The American Equity Fund LLC (“AEF”) provides an alternative funding mechanism, an Equity Line Facility (“ELF”), for SEC reporting publicly traded micro- and small-cap companies that want to take control of financial futures.  An ELF is a flexible financing structure in which AEF commits to purchase shares of Common Stock directly from an Issuer, at prevailing market prices, over a multi-year period.  When an Issuer elects to drawdown on the ELF, AEF is obligated to purchase an amount of shares equal to the dollar amount requested with a discount to market and warrant coverage to underwriting expenses.  Issuers request drawdowns at their discretion in accordance with the terms of their funding agreement.

About Rhodes Holdings LLC

Rhodes Holdings LLC (“RHL“, https://rhodesholdings.wordpress.com) was founded on the principle that public companies‘ top officers need help with the complexities and demands of the public markets.  Funding their companies and managing public S.E.C. reporting shouldn’t take all of these officers’ time and that is when RHL comes in.  RHL provides a turnkey solution for companies that would like the benefits of being public but have not experienced it before.  RHL was founded by Mr. Robert C. Rhodes in 2005.  Mr. Rhodes is surrounded by professionals dedicated to your success, including SEC lawyers, general counsels, auditors, IR professionals, and investment sources that he has historical knowledge.
