Trevor Folsom Angel · Sydney, New South Wales, Australia
Elevation Capital was formed by a group of successful entrepreneurs who have co-invested in order to pool together their capital and experience. We consider ourselves to be “venture accelerators” rather than venture capitalists. After starting my first fledgling business at the age of 17, I truly understand the unique challenges faced byentrepreneurs and I am aware that it takes more than just capital for a company to succeed.Recently, Blueprint Management and the various business's we developed (up to 10 companies over 13 years) has given me exposure to the difficult challenges that every entrepreneur will face. My experience has involved the creation of a company with only $10K start-up capital, which grew to over 950 staff. This business was then sold to a private equity group. The success of this venture has given me invaluable knowledge that I can now share with others to guide them in the future.Specialties:If there is one simple thing I have learnt in recent times about investing into growth companies, it is: "to not waste anyones time".Elevation Capital is a professional and committed organisation and is able to invest quickly when a good business opportunity presents itself. We appreciate the challenge that entrepreneurs face when trying to raise capital while also dealing with the daily time constraints of running their businesses.
