My name is Mehtab.
I help bold entrepreneurs start & scale businesses by funding and equipping them with the tools they need to succeed.
I write checks up to $75,000 but usually around $20,000 depending on what stage the company is at. I’m also happy to lead rounds and bring on additional investors as needed.
How Can I Help?
I'll Help You Build Your Company.
I know how to build companies. I bootstrapped multiple companies to 7 figures in revenue before the age of 25. When I invest in a company, I commit my time as well as capital to ensure we succeed together.
Capital & Capital Raises.
I’ve had the chance to work closely with some of the industry's biggest companies, influencers, and built some of the most effective teams. I'm always happy to make the right introductions to help grow your venture.
A Helpful Network.
Why did you use so many bright colors for this site?
I'm a guitarist that owns too many retina burning guitars from the 1980s. Unfortunately that obsession has worked its way into my professional life. Thanks Steve Vai.
What industries/sectors are you focused on?
Primarily consumer brands. Although I prefer to invest in anything that has to do with solving problems musicians face. This includes consumer goods for musicians, SaaS solutions for musicians, etc...
Will you join my company in an advisory role?
It really depends on a lot of factors. Investing time is just like investing money. Reach out and we can talk about it.
How long does it generally take to receive an answer?
I can tell you if I'm interested in getting involved within one meeting.
What do your term sheets look like?
Short and sweet. :) I prefer you focus on building your business instead of worrying about a pointlessly complex term sheet.
How do you value companies?
Valuation is more of an art than a science when it comes to early stage ventures. Typically I go off EBITDA. If the company is pre-revenue, a lot more comes into play. I always work hard to ensure that the valuation placed on companies I get involved with is fair for everyone.
I'm interested in participating in co-investing deals you put together, how do I do that?
Provided you're accredited, drop me an email and I can keep you in the loop.
Does geography matter?
Not really, although I prefer to invest in entrepreneurs located in the US or Canada.
