Guest Steve Raye Posted December 30, 2010 Share Posted December 30, 2010 Hello everyone. I am a partner in a marketing consulting company serving the beverage alcohol industry (www.thebrandactionteam.com). We also are one of the organizers of the U.S. Drinks Conference (www.USDrinksConference.com) which is an international conference focused on providing information and networking opportunities to companies looking to enter the U.S. spirit, wine and beer marketplace. My Partner and I both come from Diageo and have decades of experience in the industry. We are in the process of developing a new enterprise focused on entrepreneurs in the craft distilling space who are looking for help in taking their visions from an idea to commercialization. Our experience has shown that these early stage entrepreneurs with great ideas often lack the planning expertise, and access to financing to make their products come to life. Our partners in this venture are ex Coca Cola execs who specialize in helping address those needs with planning and access to venture capital. Till now, their focus was on non-alcoholic beverages. This new venture will combine the expertise of both our companies focused specifically on the unique needs of beverage alcohol companies, and particularly spirits So this new enterprise will be offering two services: 1. Development of a professional business plan that is designed to present your company in its best light, in the format expected by, and answer the questions that Venture Capital investors will be asking when they evaluate concepts for investment. 2. Determine your capital resource needs, develop funding strategies and provide contacts and assistance in raising capital through our network of VC's that are looking for projects in the beverage alcohol space. If you are interested in talking to us about your project, please reply to this post and leave your contact information and we will follow up directly with you.
