Terry makes his know-how available to entrepreneurs, in forming business strategies that are compatible with investors’ thought processes and methodologies for evaluating their potential opportunities. Terry has been actively consulting his clients such as REDpoint International since he relocated to Portland, OR area.
PreneurVision™ Strategies International, LLC is his own consulting firm which provides entrepreneurs with a multitude of essential services, as well as an advocate for entrepreneurs that provides support in launching their endeavors. Terry Tsubota founded PreneurVision in 2008 in order to serve as an advocate for the entrepreneur community.
Terry developed his expertise in entrepreneurial fundraising strategies as he played an instrumental role in successfully raising over $30 million at Andor International, and as he continued his research in this subject area in the following years. Andor was a startup company in Silicon Valley lead by Dr. Gene Amdahl who had been the chief architect of IBM Mainframe Computers. Later, Terry would also contribute in launching Andor Asia, a regional sales and marketing branch of Andor in Hong Kong. Terry’s full fluency in Japanese and his intimate familiarity with Japanese culture was also indispensable in circumventing the barriers often experienced by non-natives, and thus pivotal in securing funding agreements from the firms in Japan.
