... contd. from above
03.   Gairik is very selective about which Clients he chooses to work with. If a Client's product and/or business does not interest him, or its Management does not inspire confidence and trust, or if he feels that he is unlikely to be able to add positive value -- he will not take them on (generally referring them on to a sleight of other resources that might be a better fit).
04. For the Clients he does take on -- Gairik strives to guide his Startup clients to optimal widespread adoption / acceptance of their core biz / tech / concepts, ground their (sometimes over-optimistic) confidence / ebullience with business 'Reality Checks', helps them analyze what resources they need, and how best to access them, proposes summary Key Events Critical Path options and Milestone-Mapping.
05. Further, Gairik provides education to clients (who seek it) in the context-driven benefits of (multi-entity, multi-jurisdictional) Offshore Structures, where warranted.
06. Gairik also provides a certain amount of (top-management / board-level) hand-holding to set them on a sustainable path to success.
07. As a token of confidence, Gairik sometimes takes a (generally minority) stake in the Advisee companies.
08. Most of Gairik's Clients tend to be Pre-IPO / Pre-Pre-IPO, often Pre-First Round, and seek Equity Funding (almost NEVER Debt) -- Pre-Seed / Seed / Angel / Crowdfunding / VC (Venture Capital) / PE (Private Equity); and in a few rare cases, Fully-Convertible Unsecured Junior / Senior Debt. Gairik networks with International Fundors of various kinds, from (Single- / Multi-) Family Offices (to Pension Funds to Sovereign Wealth Funds) to PE / Hedge Funds. When any Fundor's (strategic and/or tactical) investment objectives / appetites match with his Advisee Client's 'Ask', they strive to Match-make -- Connect MATCHING Equity-Providers and Funding-Seekers.
09. At this time, Gairik is based out of Kolkata, India, although most of his work / clients tend to be far away. Gairik works throughout the world, remotely, which, since the Covid19 pandemic, has turned out to be the most productive way to work (for his type of work), at least for Gairik.
