We have a unique approach to the issues faced by start-ups and entreprenuers. We understand, through our experience with companies in all stages of the life-cycle, that professionalism, management expertise and sound business principles are essential to advance to the 'next level'.
Although many venture firms provide expertise to start-ups, this comes with a high price often involving a significant dilution to founders. Our approach focuses on providing the management expertise so that the next round of financing can reflect the value we bring to the table, thus reducing the ultimate dilution.
Our approach, like many accelerators in our space focuses on advancing the interests of our client while maintaining the focus of its founders. The basics of this approach are described below:
Our clients may already have a business plan that is effective and convincing. Our objective, using our own experience in business plan development and execution is to ensure that the plan that is presented addresses all the questions and provides all the answers. Investors are attracted to business plans which reflect the following:
management's ability to address the needs of a growing business
ensuring that the legal issues related to intellectual property are fully addressed and consistent with industry standard
a deep understanding of the product, the competition and its limitations
a marketing strategy that is effective and sufficiently flexible to integrate horizontally and vertically within its industry space
appropriate corporate and financing structuring, sensitive to the liquidity demands of today's investor
We understand that management's resources and the expectations of stakeholders do not always coincide. Accordingly, our value proposition given our management expertise identifies issues early on, and using the network of our advisors, facilitates solutions. These solutions may require us to do any or all of the following:
restructure the corporation in a tax efficient manner, sensitive to estate planning, exit and liquidity issues
augmenting the management team with industry experts or experienced professionals, including members of our team of advisors if necessary, to ensure that growth is managed and challenges are met
Developing a strategy, utilizing substantive solutions focused on developing markets and products
Facilitating strategies through joint ventures, co-marketing arrangements and co-development arrangements in a manner and form that has proven successful in our previous experience
Management's reputation, in all facets of its business is essential, particularly with investors that are seeking strong experience. Our compensation model lends itself to lending our reputation to a product, because we also perform due diligence before that occurs. We hope, and expect, that given the strong reputation of our principals and advisor base, that potential investors will benefit from due diligence that has already been performed.
Our goal: augment the reputation of our clients and if we cannot do so, we will ensure that the appropriate strategic partners are introduced to fufill that crucial mandate.
We can assist in all facets of financing with a view not just to ensuring growth, but also ensuring success. Our focus and work product is driven to achieve these underlying objectives. Our professional, educational and government contacts will also be utilised to realize these objectives. We are able to:
assist in preparing a company for the rigours of the investment process
present the business plan and business concept to private and institutional contacts
assist in all facets of business and strategic development and financing, from term sheet development to negotiation to execution of the closing
assist in procuring a variety of financing alternatives, described under services
