Meet Brad Furber

Founder of Aery Advisors

"I spoke to a startup founder with a $400K investment from a local investor. He was planning to spend it all to generate $200K revenue. I suggested it might be smarter to spend some of it, say $15K, on a compelling venture finance offer that could improve his balance sheet by $1M or more. That’s what I’m talking about – building foundations and capabilities, and selling your dream to investors who can help you innovate, compete and grow."

~ Brad Furber

I’m Brad Furber. I’m a seed investor, company advisor, entrepreneur and lawyer who’s been working closely with funders, intermediaries, founders and visionary entrepreneurs just like you during my entire professional career.

I’ve been a strategic mentor, advisor and angel investor in 50+ tech startups, 15 of which have already achieved an exit or liquidity event. I served as President and CEO of a bootstrapped and profitable consumer Internet software + services global tech startup, co-founder of an innovative law firm for startups and emerging growth companies, and founding business leader of a cross-faculty innovation centre at one of the world’s top 50 research intensive universities.

I’ve been engaged to advise on more than 150 angel and  venture capital financings, more than 50 mergers and acquisitions, and 10+ public offerings.

Over the past ten years, I’ve lived and worked in four countries – the USA, Denmark, Australia and now Switzerland. I understand that each region and each jurisdiction has its own unique culture and way of doing deals. I’ve seen first hand what’s worked and what hasn’t. Venture finance is not one size fits all. It requires empathy, design thinking, legal, financial and marketing know-how, strategy, persistence and true grit.

That is what I am sharing in this course.

Testimonials

Ace Forsythe Fiduciary, Advisor, Attorney
We hired Brad to assist with the acquisition of our firm by a publicly traded company. His experience, skill and advice were invaluable during that transaction. We were able to do the due diligence and some of the legal work in-house but it was great to have Brad's expertise on our side. Even though we were on the West Coast, our, acquires were on the East Coast and Brad was in Australia, I firmly believe we hired the right guy. I know we ended up with a better agreement, and would recommend others at least talk to him before doing anything.
Alastair Rampell General Partner @ Andreessen Horowitz
As a partner, adviser, and friend, Brad is fantastic on all counts. I met him as a forward-thinking client (Xeriton under Brad became our first client), became the beneficiary of his valuable advice, business ideas, and introductions, and have emerged as one of his biggest fans...even though he is one of very few people who has out-negotiated me every time! 😉 He's quite the poker player. If you have a startup or even an established business, you should get Brad involved sooner rather than later.
Nicholas Hawtin Investor Network Builder, Founder and Mentor
I had the pleasure of working with Brad in Copenhagen as a founder, investor, and mentor. He brought the ‘Term Sheet Battle’ concept with him from the US West Coast, where he staged a mock term sheet negotiation between a startup and an investor. The local ecosystem loved the program so much that it has spawned a host of imitators in the Nordic startup scene. Brad worked with a number of startups either as founder, interim CEO, advisor, investor, and mentor.
