One of our team would be delighted to have a brief discussion about your business. If the proposition is not right for us we will always try to direct you to somewhere else that may be able to help.
This should include:
- A description of your goods/service
- Market overview
- Competitive position
- Barriers to entry
- Details of any intellectual property
- Up to date accounts if the business is actively trading
- Financial projections
- CVs of key staff
This information could be in the form of a business plan.
The information you provide will be reviewed by the member of our investment team that you have been in contact with and discussed with the wider team including members of the investment committee.
If the plan meets our general criteria a member of our investment team will request an initial meeting with members of your team.
If we are still interested, we are likely to ask for further information and additional meetings involving other members of our team.
Typically we would expect to hold at least 3 meetings before moving to the next stage.
This will be an indication of the terms under which we will invest, subject to investment committee approval and due diligence.
The investment may be tranched subject to the achievement of milestones.
Once agreement has been reached on terms, a detailed investment paper will be prepared for consideration by our investment committee.
Following approval, a formal offer letter requiring your signature will be issued.
We will finalise the various legal documents required, including Shareholders’ Agreement and Articles of Association, with you.
We will verify the information you have provided, carry out a detailed review of your financial position and information, and we may wish to talk to your existing or potential customers.
All documents are signed with the company and any co-investors, followed by transfer of funds.
