Brad Blazar, the founder of Capital School, is a highly successful entrepreneur, real estate investor, former CEO of an oil company, and one of the world’s foremost experts on raising capital. When he was just 23 years old, he turned his back to school and successfully launched his own oil company. Building the business over ten years with projects in Texas and Oklahoma, this business was brought to a grinding halt in the late 1990s due to The Tax Reform Act and collapsing oil prices.
Undeterred, Brad Blazar found his true passion in life – raising money and helping others. Over the last 30 years, he has raised billions of dollars for some of the world’s leading investment sponsors and those in real estate – including closing some of the largest transactions for those companies ($11M, 9M, 7.5M, and more). Today, he consults with companies, entrepreneurs, and business owners worldwide that want to learn how to raise capital and launch funds.
Brad Blazar’s premier coaching program, Capital School, has already reached a global audience with students he mentors in Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, Brazil, Puerto Rico, Africa, Hong Kong, Dubai, and more.

The Capital Catalyst Show
Coming off the massive success of his Yahoo-rated show Beast Nation which was the 2nd highest ranked show to help people cope with COVID-19, Brad hosts the weekly show Capital Catalyst which interviews individuals and entrepreneurs who have overcome obstacles to achieve tremendous success in life using OPM and who understand the principles in wealth creation.
Brad Blazar believes everyone wants to do something more significant in life – start a business, invest in real estate, or do something else. Often, the reason that person is not doing “that something BIGGER in life” falls on a lack of capital. Blazar’s mission is to help others overcome challenges and achieve their dreams. He does this by sharing the stories of those who have done it before, hoping their example will inspire others to do the same.
Understanding Investor Psychology
An important aspect of fundraising is understanding investor psychology. “As humans, we make decisions based on emotion first, and then justify those emotions with logic later,” explains Brad Blazar. This means it’s essential to appeal to an investor’s emotional needs when pitching a project or business. When investors feel confident and excited about a potential investment, they’re more likely to write a check.
Having a Robust Network
It’s essential to have a robust network when raising capital. This means more than just having a large number of contacts. It means having quality relationships with people who can vouch for your character and abilities. When it comes time to ask for money, these relationships will be invaluable in helping you close deals.
Raising capital is a complex process, but following Brad Blazar’s advice can increase your chances of success. Remember to focus on building rapport with investors, understanding their psychology, and having a robust network—and you’ll be well on your way to closing deals and securing funding.
