The EPEC Platform

Idea to IPO...achieving the dream

Going from an Idea to an IPO or to a successful merger, acquisition or private sale for any founder or entrepreneur, can be a dream come true.

Achieving that dream is not only possible, but also a defined science based on standard corporate engineering principals.

The U. S. Public Capital Markets are the most efficient in the world, due to a “Standardization of Process”. Meaning, the SEC, FINRA, NYSE, NASDAQ, etc. have strict rules of engagement everyone must play by – in a systematic, somewhat linear manner. Corporations must be properly engineered to not only engage in the public markets, but to attract institutional investors, as well.


However, the U. S. Private Capital Markets have been a highly fragmented mess for decades, until now. 

We’ve simply taken the same corporate engineering principals necessary to play in the U.S. Public Capital Markets and applied them to the U. S. Private Capital Markets. If one does not properly engineer their companies at the early stages to eventually engage in the public markets, not only will they never have an IPO, but they also won’t receive private capital either.

We have been engaged in capitalizing start-up and early-stage companies since 1998, but not in a scalable manner. Now, we've taken things to a whole new level.

Commonwealth Capital has now converted its business into an online model as the EPEC Platform to service millions of business founders & entrepreneurs at scale. 

EPEC™ is a cloud-based ecosystem of proprietary tools and services, accessible to any founder, entrepreneur or professional who is serious about dominating the capital-raising process.  

With an Executive Membership in our Corporate Engineering Conservatory™, you now have lifetime access to all our courses, tools, services and resources and even our Co-Investors for unlimited capital access.

If you’re new to the entire capital raising process, you’ve just saved yourself a ton of time, money and frustration without even knowing it. If you’re a veteran to the U. S. Private Capital Markets, you’ll be blown away— we guarantee it.

EPEC™ – the
Ultimate Ecosystem
for the Entrepreneur

Venture Capital is investing at all-time lows due to the lack of quality companies to invest in, while unused Private Capital continues to pile up––in the trillions.

Investors have visibly shifted into stronger risk management and less opportunity-chasing. Unicorns are being replaced by Mules—the muscle needed for achieving consistent cash flow.

This has placed a huge burden on entrepreneurs and their companies: Either re-engineer to meet market demand or fail to raise capital. It’s that simple.

"The EPEC Platform™ was designed as a funding superhighway to onramp companies with founders in the driver seat, and provide them an autobahn experience using each tool they need to effectively corporately engineer their company from Idea to IPO." 

For decades, the vast majority of companies have relied on business plans and pitch decks to raise capital from venture capital, which rarely works. When it does work, founders often give up too much common class A voting equity, too soon, for too little of an investment.

In the end, founders wind up on average at less than 15% ownership at IPO or sale, when they should have 40-60%, which is entirely possible if your capitalization is done properly from the beginning. 
However, venture capital firms do have the expertise to properly re-engineer these companies to become “broker-dealer ready”, so they too, have access to the U. S. Public Capital Markets. Only Wall Street Investment Banks aka “broker-dealers” have access to the U. S. Public Capital Markets.
Imagine coming out-of-the-box having a properly engineered company that is “broker-dealer ready” and retaining at least 40-60% of the common class A voting equity upon exit.

Is there a different way to do this?

This is a great question. Let's answer that, and start by examining what entrepreneurs are up against.

There are only 2 ways to legally raise substantial amounts of capital in the U.S.


​​Produce a Business Plan and submit it to Financial Institutions for Capital for a less than 1.5% probability of funding. Their terms, not yours. 


Conduct a Securities Offering in compliance with U.S. Federal and State(s) Securities Laws, Rules and Regulations for a greater than 72% probability of funding. Your terms, not theirs.

Hey, if there was a better way, we would simply adopt that model. To be blunt, there just isn’t.

The choice is yours. You either dominate this process or be dominated by it.

We're a company you've never heard of...Until now. 

Since our founding in 1998, it has been our policy and strategy to never advertise our “Wall Street to Main Street” capital raising process.

Operating from the 22nd floor of the Chicago Mercantile Exchange Building, 100% of our portfolio companies came through a highly judicious referral network by invitation only, working selectively with only 5-10 companies a year. 

When the pandemic arrived in 2020, so did a wake-up call all across the global financial services and securities industry.

Simply put, it was either digitally transform our business model to massively scale or become a statistic in a commercial graveyard. 

In partnership with an emerging technology development company, Commonwealth Capital re-engineered itself, transforming into an advanced, cloud-based online platform and highly sophisticated capital markets ecosystem.


We are not a traditional VC, investment bank, accelerator or incubator, nor a law firm or registered broker-dealer. 

We're a hybrid venture capital management firm. 

Having reverse-engineered Wall Street into a proven program functioning as a funding superhighway, we know what it takes to raise significant private market capital, and exactly how to help founders and entrepreneurs access it.

The result? We’ve opened our “Platform Door” by invitation only, as our primary “deal flow” filtration system. Your company has apparently made at least that grade. The question now is, “Can you go the distance?”

We fully understand the need to conduct a thorough due diligence prior to engaging in any professional relationship, as due diligence is part of our own filtration process.

Due to the mandates of federal and state(s) securities laws regarding compliance of our portfolio companies to qualify for FEDERAL AND STATE EXEMPTIONS FROM SECURITIES REGISTRATION, we are PROHIBITED from identifying our portfolio companies, so as not to violate those exemptions from securities registration.

However, from time-to-time our portfolio companies, as well as our Partners, will send us un-solicited testimonials about their successes and appreciation they have for our process, which we are allowed to post here to assist you in your due diligence efforts.

Prior to 2021, we never advertised our “Wall St. to Main St.” capital raising process. 100% of our portfolio companies came through a highly selective referral network, by invitation only. Since then, we’ve opened the door for anyone who has what it takes to go the distance.

But don't take just our word for our results, hear what those who have done our program have to say.

Norman Poplowitz: Devine, Blalock, Martin & Sellari CPAs, West Palm Beach, FL

“As an entrepreneur turned educator I only wish I had access to such an insightful [FAS Course] when I started my first business. The [Commonwealth Capital] people have taken the mystery out of raising capital and how capital deals are structured. Through a step by step process the entrepreneur can now look at the many options available to raise capital and scale their business. The [FAS Course] is a must read for serious entrepreneurs who want to grow.”

Leonard Gingerella, Clinical Professor, Entrepreneurial Studies

James Holton, Retired Chairman: Citizens National Bank of St. Louis, MO

“These folks are knowledgeable, professional, and keep up on all the difficult regulations of the securities markets. I highly recommend their services to anyone I can.”

“They [Commonwealth Capital] decided to bring some of the success strategies used by major corporations to smaller, entrepreneurial ventures! The company’s goal is to educate business owners; and to provide them with the legal documents and other tools necessary to develop effective deal structures…with the goal of attracting more investors. Bottom line, their mission matches Center for Urban Business’s mission of assisting small businesses to achieve the next level of significant growth.”

Dexter Johnson, Esq., Mallon & Johnson, P.C., Chicago, IL

“The authorship and construction of securities offering documents leaves nothing to be desired.”

Lynn Stedman, Attorney at Law: Stedman, Fershee, & Fershee Attorneys at Law, Petoskey, MI

“Things are coming along nicely. I prepared the PPM, but instead of approaching investors, I approached prospective ‘members’ basically franchising my company. The initial membership provided the funding I needed to expand, and now if I ever need more funding, I have a base of people, (my members) to go to if they want to earn a share of their investment, kind of like an employee stock option, but these people are not employees. So thanks again for your phenomenal Financial Architect™ [Included within the Corporate Engineering Conservatory™] program.”

Sharon Claar, CPA Managing PartnerJTB Associates, LLC

“They structured the deal, produced the document, and showed us how to raise capital. It only took five and a half months to raise all of it once we knew how.”

Larry M. Mancour, Retired CEO: Chestnut Valley Golf Course, Harbor Springs, MI
