Send us your project
Use the online form or send us an email with a short description of your project. This doesn’t need to be a long drawn out business plan with various financial forecasts. We would prefer that you get straight to the point about your project, what your trying to achieve and what you require. If we’re intrigued and feel that we can add value, we will contact you to arrange a meeting.
If we’re excited about working with you, we’ll invite you to present your project to the partnership. Typically, this is a short presentation, followed by a more in-depth Q&A. After you’ve left the room, the partners will debate, and, if we decide to go ahead, we’ll send you a term-sheet (an outline offer to invest in your business), usually within 72 hours.
Once we’ve agreed broad terms, we start deeper due diligence. This usually takes 2-4 weeks and involves reference calls, legal audit and sometimes a financial or technical audit. Assuming no nasty surprises, we can then move forward onto investing in the project.
We aim to have an equity stake in the projects we back but we don’t want to be majority shareholders. We like founders who want to control their own destiny, and we like our interests to be aligned with them.
