What I need help with

My background as an entrepreneur

My current challenges

  1. Finding and securing investors - learning about term sheet aspects and negotiation, and all things related to this - including how to get warm intros into so many firms that only accept those (other than Linkedin mutual-contact searches)
  2. Getting my business plan done
  3. Crafting legal executive employment agreement with equity, partial-equity
  4. Validating POC with organizational clients
  5. Recruiting and signing up consumers, sellers, and organizational clients for a waitlist we can show potential investors
  6. Laying financial groundwork and expectations, checklists, etc.
  7. Crafting legal selling partner contract
  8. Being legally-prepared from all angles - from taxes, filings, tools for tracking and management of critical legal filing dates, aspects of operating as a DE Inc. PBC, but as a "foreign corporation" in CA

Actions I’ve taken so far

  1. Competitive research and validating assumptions
  2. Hired interns who are doing a number of things for me from social media to HR to finance to tech and more
  3. Begun a wireframe and prototype
  4. Have and have validated investor deck
  5. Financial projection and industry research
  6. Initial financial projections (currently getting help on this from a mentor in another mentor organization)
  7. Lots of social media marketing
  8. Provisional patent pending
  9. Trademarks
  10. Interviewed B2B procurement professionals to validate the need from their standpoint
  11. Legal structure as a DE Inc. PBC
  12. Paid property taxes for my home office
  13. Website And probably more that I am forgetting

My future goals

  1. Played a significant role in reversing climate change though sustainable purchasing
  2. Stolen a huge chunk of sellers and customers from Amazon
  3. Become the world's largest sustainable products and services marketplace
  4. Made so much money that I can travel the world and give lots of it away, build climate solutions in the most challenged communities

My motivations to work with a mentor

  1. Learn
  2. Get the above done

A NOTE TO WHOMEVER DESIGNED THIS FORM: IN THE LOCATION AREA, IT WOULD HAVE BEEN NICE TO HAVE A "GLOBAL" OR "INTERNATIONAL" CHOICE INSTEAD OF GOING BOX BY BOX
