Bio

I help entrepreneurs make money. A client raised $500k in 8 weeks / Another grew his business to 9M customers / Another made became #30 most viewed TED talk of all time (1) RAISE MONEY FROM INVESTORS / ANGELS / VCs My fastest client was running an augmented reality company and raised $600k within a week of changing their pitch deck. Another client approached with me an idea that was still just a concept, and within 9 months later he raised $750k. (2) DELIVER A WORLD CLASS TED TALK / KEYNOTE I coached Esther Perel to deliver one of the 30th most viewed TED talk of all time with 8,400,000 views. She came back to me to help with her 2nd TED talk, which is already in the top 60 with 5,600,000 views. (3) GROW YOUR BUSINESS / BUILD YOUR BRAND A client started a business while at university. He had no idea how to speak with retailers and big businesses. Within 3 months of working together, he secured a deal with one of UK's biggest retailer. Within another few months he made it to their top 10 Christmas presents list. Another client went from having an idea and no clients to having a full practice. Within 18 months of working together, she got interviewed on national television and had full page articles about her work in national papers. ******************************************************************************* I help people create masterpieces. My speciality is creating magic in life. Here's some of the magic I created in my life: SPORTS - After practicing judo for 10 years and winning the medal at the Brussels Championship, I received the highest score on my black belt exam. PUBLIC SPEAKING - After delivering over 1,000 days of workshops and public speaking, I received the UK Business Speaker of the Year Award runner up, and was invited at TED for the 2nd time. BOOK WRITING - I was invited to speak at Harvard about entrepreneurship because they got hold of my 3rd book. The same year, the Fashion Institute of Technology in NYC made my first book required reading. PHOTOGRAPHY - I spent my entire life doing art, and in 2014 the European Commission invited me to exhibit my photography at their Innovation Conference. BUSINESS COACHING - I worked with over 25,000 people from all over the world and many times, I took massive risks to do what I love. As a result, I was invited to showcase my work in the Coaching Movie and to co-host a monthly radio show on VoiceAmerica for health & wellness entrepreneurs . "The pitch went great! We're just selected for the semi-finals!! Best 20 startups of 13,000 now!" - Jouri Schoemaker, co-founder at Shake-On. ******************************************************************************* "It was so refreshing to hear someone be honest about their experience in business! I've been very keen to get back into running my own business and he has helped me reconfirmed that I should!" James Mitchell - Tenders for Construction "During that hour and a half Noam asked great questions that cut straight to the core of my business, our services, vision and direction. He was able to quickly change my perspective on elements of my business, and offer great advice on new ways to monetize. Noam's thought processes, and the pace with which he can generate sound advice is unparalleled by another other business consultant I've met. I will definitely be approaching Noam for future projects." Kevin Waller - Founder and CEO at Juice.me More on www.noam.wtf

One of my clients raised $500,000 in only 8 weeks. I've helped countless companies raise money. Here's basic questions for you to prepare your pitch:

1. What is the problem you're solving? What is the pain your reducing / what is the pleasure you're adding?
2. What is the market? Who are your customers? What is their buyers profile?
3. What is your credibility? What are your past achievements / team profiles / awards / sales results / patents / etc?
4. How much money do you want? What will you do with the money?

If you send me the answer to these questions, we'll schedule a conversation and I'll help you raise money.

Love,
Noam


It all depends on the state of your company and your negotiation power. Questions to explore will include:

• How long have you been in operation?
• What is your growth rate?
• How many people in your team?
• What is the value of your assets? (physical + intellectual)

I'm in the process of doing pitch coaching for 30 startups raising $750k and $6M, and the accelerator has already asked me to do another round of pitch coaching for them in September.

The basic principles for raising funds always the same:

1. Cut the crap from your business plan, your strategy and your pitch.
2. Build relations with investors so that they trust you and your business.
3. Pitching to investors is not selling your product / service, it's selling your company and yourself as an entrepreneur.
4. Prepare yourself 10,000% so that you are ready for all eventualities

1. Do you want some help preparing your company for investment?
2. Do you want some help with preparing your pitch to investors?
3. Do you want some help with reaching out to investors, build relations with them and ask for investments?


You say "I want to know how valuable a service that will bring one back to a state of inner peace, clarity and total presence, is to this business world"

I coach entrepreneurs and business owners to create masterpieces in their field. One of the ways I help them is by guiding them through feeling inner peace, clarity and total presence.

>> When you know the answer to this question, what difference does it make for you?

>> Is what you REALLY want to know whether business people will pay you to help them feel more inner peace, clarity and total presence?

>> Who do you REALLY want to work with?

One of my clients received $500k funding ONE week after we did our pitch coaching session. What they learned from our session is to be 100% focused and not to follow the "scatter gun approach" that they had for the 9 previous months.

Another client was looking for 50 investors, and after our coaching in 3 weeks he raised 65% of the funds he needed from 2 investors! He said

"After our coaching session, the big change was that I realized that I just needed to approach confidently the bigger investors first."

You can create very quickly a list of investors interested in your field if you ask the right questions and understand your business, and industry like a pro.

Then you can start creating a more effective and efficient investors pipeline.

Basic questions to have answers to are:

• Who will be interested in your couture house?
• Who will benefit from seeing you succeed?
• Who will be hurt from seeing you succeed?
• Who was in your shoes when they started?
• Who is not yet in the industry and wants in?
• Who are all the richest players in your industry?

Other questions you will need to look into once you've got a list of investors to approach is:

1. How do you create a dynamic in which angels and investors WANT to meet you... rather you wanting to meet them?

2. What is your strategy for meeting angels / investors, for having conversations with them and for building useful relations with them?

3. How do you present your pitch?

4. What kind of questions do you ask angels / investors?

If you want to dive in further on how you can raise the money your couture house, get in touch to arrange a call.

If you're looking to fund a startup, or even an existing business, there is no chance you will interest all investors. Some investors are only going to be interested in seed funding, other will only be interested in medical, others in mobile technology, etc.

The questions become:

1. Why do you want to find ALL NYC investors?
2. Who do you REALLY want to get investment from?
3. How much investment do you want?

People are all the same: everyone wants to be listened to, everyone wants to feel important, everyone wants to be in control of their own life, everyone wants to feel unique, everyone wants to feel like they belong, everyone wants a level of certainty, etc.

EVERYONE is your team. Your clients are part of your team because they pay you to work together. The government is part of your team because they build roads for your employees to travel to your office more easily.

>> If EVERYONE is on your team, what difference does it make...

>> ... to you?

>> ... to your employees?

>> ... to your customers?

>> ... to your wider network?

>> ... to people who are not yet part of your network?

I have worked with thousands of entrepreneurs and a lot of them are known for their kindness. Actually most successful entrepreneurs are kind and caring. If you're looking for big names, Richard Branson and Bill Gates, for example.

There are many different ways of defining "kind". What do you mean by "kind"?

What is the purpose of your question? What do you REALLY want to know?


There are different countries that offer great outsourcing value depending on your needs, timezones and budget.

Eastern Europe has some great hubs (Hungary and Estonia for example), Asia has great engineers and obviously the USA (but they get a lot more expensive).

What are you trying to create? What do you want to build?


As you can imagine this is a vast question. The key elements are to be able to pay attention in 4 different ways simultaneously:

1. Diffuse Focus: You must keep an open mind to give you a global vision of what is happening within and outside of your business. This means keeping up with industry news but also knowing what is going on outside of your normal frame of reference. Keeping this global vision helps you take better mid & long term strategic decisions without being overwhelmed by daily pressure.

2. Narrow Focus: You must keep a very narrowly focused set of priorities and short term action points based on your mid & long term strategies. Having a precise laser focus of activities helps increase day to day performance and return on investment. This is the way to grow in a lean way as well as to manage employees successfully. Having a clear narrow focus is the key to get things done.

3. External Focus: Being able to take distance from your business and taking unemotional decisions helps you take the right strategic decisions. You must be able to step away from your baby and do what is best for the business rather than holding on to the past. It is easy to become to attached to certain aspects of our business that is detrimental to the well being of the business. Taking an external focus helps you get distance and take the right decisions.

4. Immersed Focus: By being in touch with your personal vision, values and goals, your business becomes more than simply a cash cow. Knowing why you believe that your business adds value to the world and communicating it with your employees gives a meaning to their work. The best way to inspire others and to keep motivated through the difficulties of running one's own business is to be in touch with the meaning of what you do.

If you can pay attention to your business in these 4 different ways simultaneously, you will stay on top of all the moving parts.

This means you will be able to simultaneously understand what is going on in your industry at a macro-level, as well as how to manage employees, deal with customers, keep track of finances, and update your strategies to maximise success.
