Babson MSEL Graduate Launches Prepare 4 VC To Support Startups Seeking Funding
Jason Kraus MSEL’15 has launched Prepare 4 VC, a startup designed to support startups to help create better pitches to investors.
“I have put my Babson entrepreneurial spirit to work helping other startups research, define, analyze and present all of the information they need for their fundraising rounds,” he said.
“I have worked with various industries so far, mostly early stage looking for their first or second round of financing,” he said.
Kraus also holds a BA in Economics and Math from Colgate University. He worked as an associate for 38 Ventures, a family office focusing on early stage venture capital, and as both an intern and screening committee member for the Boston Harbor Angels.
During these experiences on the investor side, Jason realized that there are many great companies out there that have success selling to clients, but do not know the right approach to pitch to investors (it is a much different sales process). He began doing consulting on his own for startups, and then started Prepare 4 VC to grow and expand the business. Prepare 4 VC helps entrepreneurs create business plans, financial projections, slide deck presentations and investor pitches to get the funding they need to bring their company to the next level.
Jason is also a founding partner of Equity Venture Partners, an accredited investor equity crowdfunding platform launching Fall 2016. The platform combines Angel Deals, Commercial Real Estate investments, and Charitable Donations.
