INVESTING IN PENNSYLVANIA’S FUTURE

Investors

Great ideas, an entrepreneurial spirit and business savvy can propel an early-stage company—but only so far.

BFTP enables growing companies to identify and access the right capital at the right time through extensive relationships with angel investors, venture capitalists and other financial, government and economic development partners. We help client companies develop funding strategies, identify potential investors and secure follow-on funding.

Bridging the Funding Gap

In today’s “bleeding-edge” high tech world, it’s increasingly costly to bring new technologies to market. BFTP bridges the gap between an early-stage companies limited funds and where the company becomes attractive to outside investors.

Thanks to our rigorous vetting process, a BFTP investment often serves as the key endorsement for other funding sources, enabling companies to attract the investment they need to move beyond start-up and into full-fledged commercialization.

BFTP takes on the risk associated with the most vulnerable early stages of business development. We mitigate this risk by playing an active role in nurturing the company’s success to increase the likelihood of success, including…

  • Providing access to business expertise to ensure the company is operating soundly
  • Linking company leadership to proven technical resources
  • Supporting a business infrastructure, including incubators, Centers of Excellence and private/public partnerships

The Right Capital at the Right Time

Through extensive, trusted relationships with angel investors, venture capitalists and other financial, government and economic development partners, BFTP enables growing companies to identify and access the right capital and the right time. We help our client companies develop funding strategies, identify potential investors and secure follow-on funding.
