As a small cap public company there are many challenges that we face. We were looking for a group that was experienced in understanding these challenges and be able to give us the guidance to deal with them. American Capital Ventures is well versed in Investor Relations, capital introductions and overall advisory capabilities which has added tangible value to our company.
When we started Moocho several years ago we needed a real professional to guide us through the capital raising process and the eventual pitfalls that come with growing a tech business. American Capital Ventures stepped up in a big way by introducing investors and capital and has continued to be a trusted advisor for the company.
