Global Star Capital has prepared a list of FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS. This section is highly informative and key toward moving forward with your project. We  have a strict and transparent protocol based on decades of performance servicing clients in over 100 countries. 

How long has Global Star Capital been in business?  The Global Star family of companies has been in business since 1991.  Please view the COMPANY HISTORY section of the web site for explanation

Is Global Star Capital Dun and Bradstreet Rated? Yes, we are covered by our parent company rating for Dun and Bradstreet DUNS: 147151315.

What does it cost me to submit a project for review and do you charge "up front fees?  We work for free reviewing your documentation plus qualifying you and your project.  We do not charge "up front fees". Please make sure that you are 100% educated on the definition of  "up front fees" because that terminology when used immediately paints the picture of a project principal as being novice.  We have a nice piece in our BLOG section of the web site to assist you.  In our protocol, reviewing your project documents and speaking with you via phone is free and should be considered a privilege.  You will need to explain why your project is worthy of funding and/or finding an equity position source partner etc. Global Star Capital is a long - time established company and represents clients who can afford professional services.  Please do not waste any time trying to administer philosophies about professional standard fees or how our business should be run.  Unless you can outshine our services and have a founder who has been an instrumental force in the project funding industry since 1991, we are the service you need.  Obviously any such philosophies you may have opposite to our protocol have not worked to the point of reading this information, so now it is time to be properly represented. 

Why is it mandatory that I read the web site in full before speaking with Mr. Cocovich?  The answer is simple. You are looking for funding and must adhere to protocols and systems, or achieving the recognition needed on your project will not happen. Our mandatory,  proven protocol is in place because the very private funding sources that you can never reach on your own demand professional representation that they approve. Our  protocol is also administered in a way to expose any individuals or groups who are unethical, cannot follow directions or are not solvent. If you can follow the Global Star Capital protocol, we will succeed in gaining the recognition your project deserves.  

A face to face meeting is required between you (or your team) and our Founder Mr. Cocovich under the standard meeting fee schedule listed further down in this section.  Mr. Cocovich is the top intermediary and consultant in the private funding industry. World Governments down to individuals have all retained his services

At the meeting, Mr. Cocovich begins constructing the overall game plan. This is done in a highly professionally manner and once completed,  is then presented to facilitators of many high net worth individuals and trusts, attracting the needed attention for funding on your project.  You are educated fully as to why this is critical to your success at the face to face meeting. The high end professional game plan step plus a top-notched professional reputation is what separates Global Star Capital and Mr. Cocovich from the novice entities and unethical people inside the project funding world.  Mr. Cocovich is in place for a reason.  We are in business to present solvent projects and their principals to the decision making entities with whom we work. with everyday.  We also fund projects internally depending on the sector.  We hold the ability and knowledge to present projects in the proper way, exactly how true funding sources require the presentation.  Just having your business plan and financial data is not good enough.  It takes a massive amount of preparation to present a project properly, therefore our services are in high demand and completely warranted.  Global Star Capital becomes your most trusted guide in assisting your project in acquiring the attention necessary to administer funding that has eluded you.  You will be quite comfortable and learn more if we accept your project to move forward.

If Mr. Cocovich decides to offer me a mandatory face to face meeting to pursue my project further, what are his engagement fee requirements that are part of the mandatory protocol and when are they due?  Mr. Cocovich requires compensation for his time based on the standard consulting fee structure.  The engagement/intermediary consulting fee is due after receiving our legal agreement and before his travel plus accommodations are arranged. You will receive our legal agreement immediately after your conference call with Mr. Cocovich if he offers services.  Do not let the engagement/ intermediary consulting fee deter you.  This meeting will be the cornerstone to achieving your goal and every client since 1991 has followed through with this protocol--it is not up for negotiation.  This is NOT an upfront fee as your project will be analyzed, you will speak to two levels of executives inside Global Star Capital and preparation time will be administered on your project well before the face to face meeting. 

The following applies if Mr. Cocovich offers full services which includes the required face to face protocol meeting step and his travels to view your project. The full engagement/intermediary consulting fee is due before his travel is arranged and includes all travel expenses plus accommodations. Possible alternate meeting locations may be offered or required (see below--all prices are listed in US Dollars).

Please explain the project funding protocol to me: Global Star Capital bridges the gap between solvent entities looking for project funding and/or equity partners and debt lending entities in the commercial or intellectual property arena.  We are hired intermediary consultants and perform accordingly.  We work with projects and individuals worldwide.  The services for our clients in attracting a funding source avenue through their facilitators have been perfected over the course of many years.  An entity who can physically fund a project with their own capital or a "pooling" of capital within their organization relies on facilitators, and those entities rely on us to bring solvent projects to their system.  These sources include private individuals, private trusts, equity groups etc. 

Global Star Capital consults the client (i.e. you) first, then deals directly with private appointed individuals or companies that facilitate for sources--people who are also in place for a reason.  This means that we are not "brokers".  We are high end intermediary consultant professionals and paid accordingly.  We are engaged by principals to bring solvent projects to the lending sources through their appointed facilitator in order for profits to be made by investing.  We have a unique situation that allows us to construct a game plan for our clients based on the parameters directed to us by the appointed facilitators of funding sources.  There is no entity that is representing you (or trying to represent you) that is in our position.

It is CRITICAL that you understand hard work is the main factor in obtaining the proper attention for the funding of your project.  Mr. Cocovich becomes part of your entire team and represents you to the decision making facilitators who will green light a project.  You will obviously go through the funding source's due diligence and then closing.

Will there be references given during the process by the sources?  Yes.  After you are given green lights by the private sources through their facilitators, which only are administered by following our protocol perfectly and fully, references are given by the private sources and their head underwriters.  All Global Star Capital clients have signed NDA's with their sources and/or their facilitators which prohibit them from speaking with any entity at any stage unless the source gives consent.  Consent will only happen if you are placed into the hands of the source.  This is private funding and the operative word is "private".  Private people do not want to be bothered by just anyone searching for capital.  They have an army of professionals that sit in front of their family members, assets and investment capital.  Systems and protocols in place to make sure that the projects they fund are worthy enough for their money and investment--he or she who has cash is the king or queen.  Global Star Capital is proud to be an important part of this process and has been for decades.

Does Global Star Capital ask for any equity in projects?  Typically the answer is no, our company does not because private funding sources (other than our own money) frown upon pieces of equity divided up before a project appears on their table.  Sometimes our clients are so impressed by our services that they will offer us a percentage stake as a kind gesture or to make the deal work.  We have received equity stakes of anywhere from 1% to 10% (outside of funding projects ourselves) from these kind gestures and appreciate them immensely.

I have more than one other partner and we equally make decisions, will you work with us?  Yes.  However, we have found that 99% of the time when there are multiple partners that make "equal" decisions, a deal will never close due to the egos and internal fighting of the principals.  We always encourage that a sole principal be named for leading a group.  If you follow our lead, we will be sure to make this all smooth for you. Please read the above over and over because if you have more than one decision maker, this is vital information.

I am a "Broker", Intermediary, CPA or Attorney who has a hard time getting a deal closed. How do I submit a project into Global Star Capital in order for your Founder Rich Cocovich to work with my client directly?  You must be fully screened and approved to submit projects into Global Star Capital. You must visit the INTERMEDIARY/BROKER section to get started.  Please do not submit a project without being fully screened.  Please do not waste time testing our system because you will fail.

Furthermore, also realize that our founder, Mr. Cocovich, has been highly successful as an entrepreneur, consultant and C.E.O. since 1991.  He will not waste time with pushy or novice people who have their own philosophies (which are obviously not working) as they continue to search for capital.  In addition, it baffles us when we see individuals posing as "brokers" who are not actually licensed to use that title.  Your clients and all solvent principals deserve the proper representation.  Therefore, we have taken the time to create a screening process for protection of all parties.  If you are serious and want to succeed, you will follow through on the mandatory requirements and the process in the Intermediary/Broker section. 

***A special note to project principals---We created the screening process to expose the unethical, novice or fly by night individuals that feast on unsuspecting principals.  In addition, this screening process allows us to qualify the individual representing the principal previous to the project.  We demand to know if the representing individual is actually ethical.  We have seen it all--anywhere from stay at home moms who say they are "money brokers" and can acquire "letters of intent in two days" to workers at your favorite coffee house who pose as intermediaries or money brokers on their breaks.  We have also seen these types of entities try and steal our consulting philosophies.  All of these entities fail because they cannot deliver for their clients.  They also do not have two decades plus worth of experience and a crystal clear track record such as Mr. Cocovich.  When novices are feeding their babies or serving coffee while speaking with you, Mr. Cocovich is meeting with clients who have the desire, vision and ability to engage him in order to achieve their goals.***

I have been in contact with less than desirable brokers, people claiming they will provide a funding source and bogus companies claiming they are funding sources.  Is Global Star Capital just another one of these companies?  Absolutely not.  We are completely transparent and you will make decisions in your process that are based on perfectly explained steps and goals.  We have different avenues to fit your project requirements.  If we cannot provide an avenue toward the funding of your project after reviewing your documents thoroughly, we will inform you.  In all private funding there are required, mandatory steps.  In our protocol, the steps are the vital link to achieving your goals.  Remember, our founder is the top intermediary consultant in our industry.  He is not a broker

I have read blogs, chat reports, chat room conversations about paying fees and how all fees are bogus.  Can you explain your views on fees?  First, high end professionals such as Mr. Cocovich perform services that obtain results.  If you believe funding will occur without a high end service and a thorough game plan plus want everything in life for free, you should quit searching for capital immediately.
