why work with us

Having worked with more than 100 classifieds businesses and with direct access to over 300 classifieds and marketplace investors, EIV can run an equity fundraising for online classifieds more efficiently and more effectively than any other advisor.  

EIV can accurately navigate the complex and highly nuanced investor landscape, and more quickly target the investors who provide the best fit with the client's needs. 

 

EIV understands what the different types of financial (and strategic) investors are looking for in an online classifieds or marketplace business at every stage of the investment cycle, and can help ensure the client is optimally prepared to present its story and negotiate terms with target investors.

 

the difference- a faster, smoother and more successful funding process
