“Jenny brings a wealth of experience and a fantastic, healthy perspective to fundraising that turns it from a chore into empowerment!”

– Colleen Kavanaugh, Zego Snacks

A special invitation to

grow your business on your own terms

This program is the result of over 25 years of working with hundreds of social entrepreneurs at every stage of growth and in just about every industry you can think of. Jenny Kassan has helped her clients creatively structure their businesses, innovate new business models, and raise millions of dollars from supportive investors.

Jenny believes that the world desperately needs values-driven business owners with the financial resources they need to have the world-changing impact they were meant to have.

Unfortunately, finding the right funding can be challenging for highly mission-driven entrepreneurs who are unwilling to sacrifice their mission in the name of enriching investors at any cost.

But we at Jenny Kassan Consulting have discovered that with the right strategies, tools, and support, it is possible to raise the funding you need on the right terms for you. We believe that if your business has the potential to contribute to a better world, it is your responsibility to get the funding you need to create a healthy, sustainable business. As long as you are stuck in the bootstrap trap, using your credit card and personal savings to fund your business, it is likely that you will continue to struggle with having the time, energy, and resources to fulfill your mission.

We would love to support you in finding the right funding for your business.

Our unique, proprietary six-step process helps those who may not believe they could be successful with raising funding from investors guides you in creating your customized fundraising strategy. We also help those who have tried many different approaches to fundraising but are simply not getting results, to pivot their method in order to attract the right investors.

Inside our upcoming Capital on Your Terms Community, you will learn to:

  • Identify where to find the right investors for you
  • Design an offering that will be attractive to investors but will not threaten the survival of your business
  • Position yourself uniquely to stand out to your ideal investors
  • Invite investors to conversations with comfort, confidence, and authenticity
  • Draft a day by day outreach plan for your investment offering

And much more …

All the details are on this page. We look forward to seeing you in the community if you choose to join!

In appreciation,

Jenny Kassan and the JKC team

“Jenny is, hands down, one of the most knowledgeable sources in the field today when it comes to creative capital raising for social enterprises and small businesses.”

– Amy Cortese, Investibule

What is “Capital on Your Terms”?

“Capital on Your Terms” represents a growing movement of conscious entrepreneurs that are committed to raising investment in a way that allows them to stay true to their mission, goals, and values.

For decades, entrepreneurs have been told that if they want to raise money from investors, they have to commit to a life of overwork and trying to grow their business at any cost. If you can’t be the next “unicorn” tech startup and capture hundreds of millions of dollars in market share within the next few years, don’t bother trying to raise money.

“Capital on Your Terms” is a completely different approach to funding your business. It starts with the knowledge that investors are diverse and that you don’t have to sacrifice what’s important to you to attract investment dollars. There are plenty of investors out there who will be attracted to your unique value proposition.

More and more investors are tired of participating in a system that concentrates wealth in fewer and fewer hands and favors only the most privileged entrepreneurs, leaving 99.9% out of access to capital.

Capital on Your Terms is a proven step-by-step system that will teach you how to tap into the vast overlooked pool of investors that are looking for opportunities to invest outside the box in a way that reflects what is truly important to them.

“Jenny gave me the tools I needed to offer an investment opportunity to supportive investors. My team and I are well on our way to achieving our goal of raising $500,000. We’re offering equity but we are not giving up any control. We’ve had a remarkable response and we couldn’t have done it without Jenny’s teaching and support.”

-Kristen Barker, Our Harvest

greater potential for business growth and impact

way

This community is not for business owners who
  want to put all their energy toward making their investors rich as quickly as possible, no
matter the cost
do not care if their business has a positive impact in the world
have no interest in getting creative when it comes to capital raising
