Do you need investment in your business and are you sure you’ve claimed all the “free” money you can?
Many start-up and early stage companies need business finance to get themselves off the ground and scale the organisation to the point where it can start to support itself.
In recent years, there has been a huge amount of publicity regarding the difficulty small companies have accessing funding of any kind – particularly through the banks. Consequently, many good businesses with interesting and potentially viable products and services, never actually secure the funding they need to give the business a chance of success.
There are however, various forums for raising business finance other than through banks and venture capitalists. Some of these include crowd funding and crowd lending, Dragons Den style events and business angel and angel syndicates. The problem is that they all tend to have a scattergun approach and as a result, the chances of actually raising funding are low.
The NXD approach to this issue is somewhat different and much more precise. If we take a business on, we will work with them on any one or even all three of the following key stages:
- Firstly, we will work with the management team to get the business in shape so that it can appeal to potential investors.
- Secondly we will check that the business has claimed all the “free” money it can in the form of tax reliefs and credits, grants and any other local, national or international incentives that it may qualify for.
- Finally, we will help the business to work out the right blend of debt and equity funding and work to introduce them to funders that are appropriate and likely to be interested in the particular business concerned.
