The Ritz Group provides a modular suite of services to "take" companies Private
CAPITAL SERVICES are based on the exclusive new private equity model called the CAPITAL DRILL The Capital Drill simplifies and de-mystifies today's complex private equity methodology used to set up and evaluate early stage shareholder companies. The Capital Drill provides an online registration service to create and maintain shareholder models used to project investor ROI for each round, but also to project changes based on actual financial reporting.
Capital Services provide a formal four-phase approach to audit a company and take them through the Capital Drill. This is our fee-based service answer to today's "who is in the lead" and who has completed "due diligence" in setting up a companies capital structure and terms sheet for others who want to only write checks. This is our answer to creating more Lead Angels.

The Scholarship Program is vehicle we use to perform the Capital Services Audit funded by investors before they invest the big money. The Scholarship Program recognizes bootstrapped companies are broke - but have stock as a by-product of the audit. Investors fund the audit and receive stock from the company for the money they invested to perform the audit.
Fractional CIAO Program
The Fractional CIAO Program is our answer to today's Accelerator Programs to "groom" companies for investment. Fractional Chief Investment and Assurance Officers (CIAO) ensure the capital "pot" is correct for past commitments and all down rounds. In addition, they provide the lead for syndication with Angels who want to just write a check when someone has "de-risk" the investment and is managing their interests through exit. We will screen, train and qualify CIAO’s to be deployed on a fee-based client contract. Each CIAO will manage 4 to 5 clients. (more)
