I help startups become investment ready and raise funds by creating killer decks, growth strategies and defensible models that scale them further, faster

I've founded, scaled, lead and lived startups. I know it's hard!

Founding a startup and leading a team is a hard, grueling and lonely experience! Fundraising is the nightmare.

Alongside Investment Readiness, I can help you with

Brand strategy

Strategy is the foundation of any branding project. It's impossible to intentionally reach any kind of business goal without doing strategy first. Brand strategy is understanding goals, the target and customer profiles, the market, where the brand currently is and where it wants to be in the future.

Brand Identity

Brand identity is not just about the logo. Brand identity is the set of elemnts through which the brand influences people's perception of itself. The visual style has to reflect the soul of the brand, to better connect with its target audience.

UX/UI design

A website is not just a crucial marketing tool. Today, people live on the internet. Your website con't just be pretty and salesy, but it's supposed to be a unique experience for the user. That's why my web design process has a strong focus on Strategy and User Experience.

"Kudos! I had an excellent consulting experience working with Bassiouni. Having no knowledge of a startup and the startup world, I was about to take a poor approach, having this call with Bassiouni has not only helped me realize where to focus our fundraising and development efforts, but also how to fundamentally think about the product and the market we are bringing it to. Thanks Bassio!"

How long does it take to get my startup to be investment ready?

It depends on the round scope, the brand size, its goals, and how deep we want to go with the strategy. On average, an IR project (strategy and design) could take from 3 up to 12 weeks.

How long does it take build a killer pitch deck?

The time it takes to build a fundraising deck varies on several factors. Complexity, strategy, number of pages, technology and product depth all affect the project time. It can take less than a week to build a deck but up to 4 weeks of practice to perfect it.

How much does it cost?

I don't have a price list. The projects I work on are all unique and different from each other, as are the services I offer.
This implies that the prices are also customised according to the scope of work. I mainly charge an hourly rate, to get an idea of the price of the services you need, book a meeting with me from here.
