For over 20 years, Purim's founder, Greg Downey, has helped build, launch, and finance disruptive products and companies across multiple sectors, as well as conduct due diligence and turnarounds on behalf of private corporations, high-net-worth individuals, private investment groups, and family offices. Many of the companies he has helped capitalize have been early-stage and pre-revenue, which are often the most difficult to finance. This unique experience has allowed him to sit on both sides of the table dozens of times, obtain essential knowledge of the deal-making process, hone key strategies and tactics, and develop an extensive network of partners and investors.
The Capital Mastermind is a fast-paced, 90-day, intensive strategy and due diligence engagement that is now being offered to qualified entrepreneurs and business owners who need private capital. It caters to busy, driven people who want to take control, invest in themselves, bypass years of trial and error, and successfully raise capital on their own. Clients have gone from minimal knowledge to first check in 30 days, and we've seen terms sheets for our clients totaling over $200M, many who are early-stage, and that's only since launching the Mastermind mid-2022.
Dan King, a client and former corporate attorney for the hit TV show Shark Tank turned entrepreneur, called what we do "one of the most valuable investments an entrepreneur can make in themselves." See his and other real-world testimonials below.
Our comprehensive approach provides the education and personal mentoring that creates the confidence and necessary collateral, documents, and skills that all entrepreneurs and business owners need to master the fund raising process. Unlike the majority of educational programs, we don't pontificate from afar, we get involved, go all in, and focus on deliverables and execution.
The Capital Mastermind was created and is led by Purim’s founder, Greg Downey, who has co-founded and been a part of multiple successful startups and has helped organize and lead capital raises totaling over $300M. The team at Purim Ventures has collectively raised billions of dollars for private companies and developed global brands from the ground up.

Dan is a former corporate attorney from the hit TV show Shark Tank who was inspired to become an entrepreneur himself. In this interview, we talk about the challenges he was facing, why he sought us out, and the quick success he experienced in closing investors in less than 60 days.
Nathan developed a multi-million-dollar business from scratch, then took some much-needed time off for his family. After realizing the amount of information he gleaned over his 10 years in the industry, he decided to jump back in and scale nationally. Realizing that he would need private financing to achieve his goals and build a team, he turned to us for assistance and closed his first investor in less than 30 days.
Mike & Rob are co-founders of an innovative media business and have worked with major brands. As pioneers in their space, they recognized the need to go big or go home. After several negative experiences with other venture capital firms, they turned to us. In under 45 days, they received their first term sheet from a strategic investor who shares their vision and wants to take them global.
Steve & Amy left the cold weather of Alaska for St. Croix, and soon realized that many developing countries lack adequate infrastructure to recycle plastic waste. They developed a portable, self-contained system that turns waste into a valuable material that can be used in building products, furniture, and more, all while creating local jobs. They knew they needed to raise capital and didn't want to waste time, so they reached out.
Steve is a former corporate banker, published author, and veteran entrepreneur who grew one of his previous ventures to 800 employees in 6 states with revenues over $100 million. He is now on a quest to scale his new business that offers a paradigm shift in personalized healthcare services for busy professionals looking to optimize their health. So why would someone with his track record seek outside help in raising capital? Let Steve tell you in his own words.
Megan is one of three partners in a commercial real estate holding company in Michigan. Despite years of experience as a successful business owner and entrepreneur, and assembling an impressive development group, Megan and her partners found themselves stuck in their capital raise so she enrolled in the program.
Jon & Evelyn are successful entrepreneurs who have bootstrapped multiple businesses ranging from a supplement company, a global air rifle company, restaurants, and an entertainment and promotions business. When they purchased 260 acres of land in Puerto Rico with the vision for an adventure eco-park, they realized they needed outside capital. After spending thousands with numerous consultants and advisors who sold a great story but failed to deliver, Evelyn contacted us for assistance.
An incredible amount of extremely valuable information for start-ups and business owners looking to scale. I have met with angel investors in the past and felt overwhelmed and underprepared.
Your course helped demystify the process and has given me the confidence that I can do this. The course has a lot of great information.
This isn’t stuff that was ever taught to me in undergrad and grad school and the information has given me a lot more comfort with the process.
Regardless if you do the course or not, I suggest at least connecting with Greg sometime just to chat through what you have going on. Greg is an incredible networker and loves to connect people he meets with others that may be able to assist them (he has already connected me with a suggested web developer and possible angel investor).

After suffering from an injury in his own business and needing to pivot, Braxton began evaluating other opportunities and sought us out to gain the knowledge and skills needed to effectively evaluate, as well as put together a business that would be attractive to investors.
I have found working with Greg and his knowledge of what is necessary to raise capital to be invaluable to me. His process for involvement in the steps to be taken to acquire funding is important for any entrepreneur seeking to raise capital for a start-up or on-going business requirements. At a personable level, I found Greg to be very engaging and direct in his approach to delivering his course material.
Rarely do you come across someone who is talented at both big picture ideas and executing the intricate details — Greg is just that person. I have found the Capital Mastermind Course to be at a master’s degree level of experience, knowledge, and education.
This is a course every entrepreneur should and needs to have in their tool bag in order to save time, money, and not waste scarce resources.
I highly recommend Greg Downey and the Capital Mastermind program to any person who is or has plans to be an entrepreneur.

After successfully starting and selling two businesses, Jamila turned her energy towards solving a big financial problem plaguing many small businesses. As a multi-million-dollar project that required outside capital, she decided to invest in herself and enrolled in the program to increase her knowledge, build out her collateral, and lead her own capital raise. Here are a few excerpts from her one-on-one sessions.
The Capital Mastermind program is a one-of-a-kind experience. I’ve seen first-hand the mistakes that can be made with investing, messaging, and how a small start-up operates. Greg’s classes focused on how to get started, doing things right, and avoiding those common pitfalls.
It was impressive to me that in six short weeks a start-up could be fully equipped to go after and succeed in procuring investors. Greg’s personal style, the sharing of starter collateral, and hands-on workshops all showed his commitment to the success of each attendee.
I don’t know how someone would get started as an entrepreneur without having these tools and skills at their disposal.

I recently completed Greg Downey’s Capital Mastermind program, and I cannot recommend it enough.
As an entrepreneur embarking on his first capital raise, the knowledge I gained and the technical vocabulary I amassed has changed the way I am viewed by investors.
I came into the course as an engineer with limited business acumen excited to share my vision with strategic investors, and left with a polished data room, an alluring executive summary, an engaging pitch deck, and a professional website.
In a few words, I gained legitimacy.
I can now approach family, friends, and strategic investors with the confidence that I have checked all the boxes, and the thoroughness of the work we did leading up to our capital raise allows me to focus on the content.
I would consider Greg’s program to be an MBA for Entrepreneurs and believe that working with Greg leading up to any capital raise is an essential part of the process.

The Capital Mastermind program truly hits the target on value delivery.
As someone who has spent tens of thousands of dollars on different business trainings, rarely have I come across a course that delivers this level of applicable information.
You will finish this course and understand the entire process of raising capital and taking your business to the next level.

This program is an amazing eye opener! After taking the Mastermind program my eyes were opened to a whole new world of opportunity for raising capital. It couldn’t have come at a better time as I’m currently engaging 2 new business prospects. Having now been educated through this course with Greg, I am much more confident and relaxed moving forward.
The value is there! The 1:1 consultation alone is pure gold.
Don’t over think it, just do it!
This Mastermind experience will pay back in dividends!
