SafetyPay VC investor roadshow in NY
SafetyPay is a fast-growing digital payment solution company. A few of the early stage investors had reached stipulated investment goal and were looking to offload their share in the company. Grayling was entrusted by SafetyPay to organize an roadshow in New York for management to meet with venture capital investors who would be interested in taking over the shares. Grayling conducted thorough research to identify VC investors with expertise in the digital payment space and proactively reached out to gauge their meeting interest. Some of the prospects asked that we speak with them on the phone as part of the meeting screening process. In the end, we were able to arrange a full slate of meetings with some of the most reputable and deep pocketed investors in the space for management and a few meetings resulted in follow-up meetings immediately thereafter.

Grayling proactively reached out to investors in a timely manner via email and phone calls and were able to secure an audience size that exceeded management expectation. The event went off without a hitch and we look forward to working with Ecopetrol again for the next event.
