What We Do
Pulling from our extensive network of investor and industry connections, we have helped multiple startups raise seed funding and project finance. We selectively invest as an angel -- especially if we determine to work closely with the founders and board. We also advise on project-based and alternative financing, so we can fundraise projects and companies most VCs avoid due to "content risk" (like VR games and AR gaming apps). Seahorn applies risk mitigation strategies from the traditional media financing world to these efforts, making project investment more attractive to a wide range of investors.
Seahorn has built relationships throughout the entertainment, gaming, and VR/AR/XR worlds and uses these to arrange for strategic partnerships and complex oftern multi-party commercial deals. The companies that we advise have access to these partners and utilize them to grow their business.
Strategic Consulting and Executive Coaching
We provide extensive advisory services to all of our client or portfolio companies. Some of these services include (for non-US companies) setting up US and Californian operations, accessing the best most cost-effective legal, accounting and related business services. We oftern work very closely with our portfolio company founders and boards, provide high-priority guidance and problem-solving.
