A one-time "Investment Banking Industry Bad Boy" turned corporate fraud and alternative investment compliance consultant, Mr. Muehler is a true pioneer in the venture capital and private equity investments industry. Mr. Muehler has more than fifteen years experience in the Investment Banking and Corporate Finance industry, holding senior financial management and business development positions in both regional banks and international finance companies. Mr. Muehler has extensive experience in structuring business plans, private and public securities offerings, and fund raising efforts for nanocap and microcap companies (both private and public). His areas of expertise are in Commercial and Residential Real Estate Development, Energy, BioFuels, Mining & Mineral Rights, Oil & Natural Gas, Medical Device, Pharmaceuticals and New Technology.
Prior to a fifteen year career in the Investment Banking and Venture Capital Markets, Mr. Muehler served four years in the United States Marine Corps (1995 to 1999) before attending college in South Carolina.
After college, Mr. Muehler held positions in the Finance Departments of two community Banks in the Greater Minneapolis - St. Paul area (Minnesota) where he was a sales team leader in the Real Estate Lending departments.

Mr. Muehler has also served as a business consultant to a variety of mid-market companies providing strategic and financial modeling, business development training, and management assessment.
In 2017, after fifteen years of the highs-and-lows of the Investment banking industry, and dealing with years of unrealistic regulations at the Federal Level, Mr. Muehler (along with a handful of private investors) exited the investment banking industry to pursue private ventures, like those listed to the left.
