ROND Debuts New Capital Studio Division
Helping Business Owners Prepare for a Capital Raise
NASHVILLE, Tenn., Oct. 9, 2018 — ROND Capital, the Nashville-based private equity firm investing in small and growing businesses, announced today the launch of Capital Studio, which provides high-impact support services for business owners seeking outside capital.
“Expanding ROND’s capabilities with the Capital Studio division allows us to become a full-service capital partner, providing capital, support and services to entrepreneurs,” says Danielle O’Rourke, chief executive officer for ROND. “We’ve developed a program that reduces the most common points of friction in a capital raise process,” says O’Rourke.
Capital Studio leverages ROND’s proprietary tools and insights to help entrepreneurs better articulate the value of their businesses, identify the right investors, and understand their business through an investors’ perspective. Capital Studio will target companies primarily in healthcare, technology, and business services.
In connection with the launch of Capital Studio, ROND has released an online guide to capital raising.
“We want ROND to be the first place business owners turn when they are interested in raising outside capital,” says O’Rourke. “We went back over years of notes, wrote down every question we were asked by entrepreneurs about the capital raise process, and then answered them all. It’s all on our website as a free resource and we’ll be adding to it over time.”
