Sooner or later any growing business finds itself faced with the need to find fresh capital with which to initiate a new phase in its development. Before seeking for this capital, an investment project must be clearly outlined, supported by a credible finance plan negotiated with interested investors. Allyum supports you at each stage in this complex process.
To find new sources of finance for your projects
Like most SMEs, your company grows step by step. Each time you move up to the next level, this means new investments, whether to ramp up production capability, develop new markets or finance new research in order to improve your products or services.
Sometimes these new investments require financial capacities that are beyond the company’s current means and the management’s capacity to inject fresh money. Bringing in external financing is no easy task and raises many questions:
Are the scenarios underpinning your new business plan accurate?
Do your projections factor in all the important parameters?
Where will you find financiers willing to support your project?
How do you share your vision and enthusiasm with them?
Should you be offering shares or securing a long-term loan?
How do you negotiate the conditions for this financing?
How do you handle the arrival of new shareholders and how much weight do you allow them on your board?
Tailored support to secure the right financing for your company.
