Lantern Capital Advisors Financial Advisory Services and Capital Raising

Lantern Capital Advisors is a corporate financial advisory and consulting firm that writes comprehensive business plans with financial models for growing companies and gets them funded from a wide variety of lenders not limited to:  institutional lenders, equity firms, mezzanine debt and specialty debt providers.  Our financial advisory services helps companies overcome the challenges of growth, mergers and acquisitions, management buyouts, and restructuring debt.   We assist our clients with identifying opportunities, and executing corporate finance transactions.

Lantern’s Unique Approach, Objectivity, and Unmatched Value

Most other financial advisory firms raise capital using an investment banking fee formula, or are a “consulting firm” structuring their financial advisory services through an investment banking company.  Through this approach, the advisory firm is typically paid a large cash fee and receives company stock, or even is weighted towards the referral fees accepted on the back end, or the additional fees tied to the amount or types of capital raised.  The financial advisory firm’s compensation often varies substantially depending on the type and amount of capital raised (i.e. equity vs. debt).  We believe this approach results in excess compensation to the advisor, creates conflicts of interest, and needlessly dilutes the Company’s existing equity holders.


Lantern’s project fees require no additional stock or equity compensation.   Lantern Capital Advisors performs all work on a hourly fee consulting only basis.  Fees are scoped at the project onset.      Our corporate financial advisory services team works alongside our client management team, achieving each milestone to ensure their satisfaction along the way.  Simply put, Lantern Capital Advisors is committed to delivering superior service and guarantees results.  Our success is measured not on fees collected, but on deals getting done.

Corporate Financial Advisory Services

Lantern Capital Advisors team of corporate financial advisory services professionals successfully secure business financing for our clients on an hourly fee consulting basis.  Our typical business plan development process takes two to four weeks to complete prior to distribution to qualified and targeted institutions and funding sources.  Based on the financing required, clients can expect to receive term sheets, negotiate their deal, and achieve funding for their transaction in three to four months post project kick off. 

Lantern Capital Advisors is a corporate financial consulting firm.  Lantern Capital Advisors is not a broker.  Lantern Capital Advisors is not a “finder”.  Lantern Capital Advisors doesn’t bill on a percentage of financing raised basis because we feel that those methods have a way of inflating themselves without the value being delivered in the end. 

Lantern Capital Advisors is not an investment bank.  We don’t raise capital from individuals, nor do we underwrite investments.  Lantern Capital Advisors does not accept referral or broker fees from funds or financing sources we recommend or clients we refer.  We work on behalf of our clients as a corporate finance consultant, and the terms (the best terms) our clients receive reflect the fact that we are not collecting additional fees on the back end from funding sources.     


Once institutions deliver financing proposals to our clients, our financial advisory services team works with our clients to ensure they understand all of the financing solutions presented, analyze the proposals to compare them against one another, negotiate the proposals on behalf of our clients, and consult with our clients throughout due diligence and funding in order to secure the best outcome for the business owner. 

We know we are the best at what we do.  We know our competition can’t beat us.  Our business plans stay on budget.  Our professional fees don't change.  Our billing rates don't change.  Out of pocket expenses are reasonable.  Our clients remain clients throughout their company lifecycle.
