Investment Process

We have a straightforward 8-week process approach that requires minimal time from all parties involved and guarantees a transparent and efficient process.

Step 1: Understand

Issue a Non-Disclosure Agreement (NDA) : Explore ownership, vision, goals, opportunities, and preliminary terms. Discuss customers, products, finance, marketing, sales, value proposition and growth trajectories.

Step 2: In-depth due diligence

Review finance model, legal, operations, executive team, information and technology.

Step 3: Indication of Interest (IoI)

Review and negotiate Purchase or Operating Agreement term sheet. In some situations we elaborate our own investor model in collaboration with our prospect partner.

Step 4: Complete the transaction and begin the management onboarding process

Establish agreed governance model and start the work. We strive to allowing existing management teams to be fully responsible for day-to-day operations as long as they are meeting the projected financial performance targets and business plan timelines as jointly determined.
