At Accelerate Ventures (AV), we have spent two decades building relationships with SEC Compliance Attorneys and in our own right have become experts in business entity structuring. We engage our clients in a co-creative process to design unique corporate structures that meet business needs. We can select-design corporate structures based on the legal and tax needs of an entity from Delaware to Nevada to Wyoming and more. In tandem, AV will also collaborate with you to design and draft your:
- Business Plan

Mature markets with mature products and services can often yield opportunity for new product introductions fostered by leaps in technology. Then again, sometimes you find yourself being stalked by the first immutable rule of marketing which is be first! This can be a blessing and a curse. Few sales teams have the maturity to sell into a market at the same time you are creating the very market being sold into. Going back to the dot.com era, AV’s founding partners have the battle scars and track record of success to lead a charge into making your market. Market making is one of our core competencies.
At its core, AV is a sales engine. In fact, we have built our own proprietary system called The Sales Engine that we use daily to move the needle north and close transactions. We have a saying: “know for real what is really real” and with our transactional system you will experience transparent sales visibility like nothing you have ever seen.
We know this is a bold claim and we make it liberally because we back it up. Our system lets our clients know:
- Every time a sales call is made
- The call outcome, positive or negative
- Defined next steps
- Follow up plan
All of this happens inside an actionable framework that allows for high-level monitoring as your sales pipeline is being built. Markets are attacked in waves with weighted dollar values assigned to target customers. The visibility we offer allows for intelligent adjustments to be made with positioning, pricing, deal structure and more, all in real time. If you would like a demonstration, please e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Brand Creation & Marketing
In today’s marketing environment, your brand has to glow like a diamond to get noticed. The drivers of brand choice must be echoed in your brand promise and in how you communicate to the marketplace. Understanding how brand dynamically impacts everything your business does from how you communicate internally, to what your sales people say on the street to how you message to a target audience. In 2018 AV absorbed Oliver Hado Productions to offer in-house service solutions that include:
- Custom Brand Design
- 3-D Modeling
- Video Production
- Audio Production
- Motion Graphics
- Media Planning
- Social Media Marketing
- SEO Marketing
- All constructed with top-shelf outcomes
Knowing how to approach and engage venture capital is one thing, knowing how to navigate the deal structure VC’s often propose is another. At AV, we work with our clients at the front end of capitalization events to ascertain what the right investment path is for their given investment goals. Sometimes VC is the answer but often times there are alternate creative paths to be explored.
If VC is on your immediate horizon, we work with you to package up your company in a format comfortable to VC. We help develop a cogent business plan as we coach and guide you to demonstrate manageable control of all your business drivers to sell stock with confidence. If greater assistance is needed, we have the contacts to make the introductions, pitch the room, and negotiate the terms and conditions that result in a funded event. What makes us special is we have access to deal flow and we are particular about the deals we engage. Because of our filtering process, our venture partners are always excited to see what we bring to the table.
Over the years, we have owned numerous patents. We have worked with inventors both in-house and outside to draft claims for submission to the USPTO to secure provisional patents. We then work with some of the best patent attorneys in the country to prosecute the IP into fully baked patent assets. We have years of experience in licensing IP and have reached transactional licensing agreements with great companies like Good Year Tires, Cabela’s, TOMY International and hundreds more. If you’re looking to build a defensible patent family to support your proprietary business model or need help navigating the waters of patent infringement, we can help. We also work with companies to process technology transfers for Silverado rights in alternate market opportunities.
