What is a growth company without external funding needs? An instant success.
Joking aside, we can help startups, growth companies and NGOs in their funding process. We see two important parts to the endeavour: preparation and relationship building.
Either of the two components can hinder or even prevent you from getting your desired funding outcome. If you don’t have a compelling story to tell it’s difficult to convince others to invest in you.
A good story is no fiction. It’s your brilliant business strategy backed up with facts and market data that support your excellent product / market fit. And, any story with no actual heroes is not worth telling. Your team and resources are important actors, and they make or break any meeting.
When your home work is done, it’s time for a premier. The limelight is not often very glamorous and I wouldn’t expect any red carpets either. Industry insiders would call this part of the process as sales. We prefer the term trust building.
You are the lead actor he reaching out and dazzling your prospective investors with your perfect storyline, the one with a happy ending for everyone. Building trust takes time. You can speed up the process by getting introductions to the right people but yet you have to earn the trust. And everyone wants to meet the key characters.
Consider us as your sidekick. We can pull some strings, set the stage and move even a few mountains. But it’s you who has to make the magic to happen. This is not our first rodeo so we can guide you through the different steps and support in your decision-making process.
