Investors' Take on Advisors

Lorette Farris is Seasoned to Serve a niche market of Business Leaders. Those interested in how the new capital market has shaped:

  *  Access to Capital for Main St Businesses, and
  *  Investment Opportunities for Small Investors

Through the Inspire Seed Fund, Lorette facilitates Mastermind Groups to teach best practices in raising capital for and investing in Main St businesses.

Working with the Fund's Portfolio Companies, Mastermind Members share, suggest and support each other and their respective campaigns.

The Mastermind groups are mostly comprised of Portfolio Companies of the Inspire Seed Fund, however interested parties may apply.

Featured Portfolio Companies

The lifecycle of a business from concept to maturity is a journey filled with many highs, which generally follow gut-wrenching lows; with insufficient capital resources being a big part of the challenge.  

I am "Seasoned to Serve," and through the Inspire Seed Fund, I use my experience to help build strong foundations while fostering capital democratization as a:

     *  Seasoned Corporate Advisor

     *  Lead Investor / Syndicate Manager

     *  C-Suite Mastermind Group Facilitator

Creating "Community Angels" to invest in communities and projects they understand - similar to how capital flows from today's angel and venture Investors into founders in their network.

Meet the Fund's Portfolio Companies, a fierce cohort of business founders and leaders looking to change what "Access to Capital" really means.
