Capital Raising

Campaign Support

"I engaged Duet Partners to run an ‘A' round funding process for the company. They helped us engage with a high quality syndicate combining both financial and strategic VC’s. The process was managed in a highly effective, professional way and we achieved all of the targets we had set for ourselves at the beginning of the project. I would highly recommend John and the team to other organisations looking for VC funding.’'

Steve Kelly, CEO/Founder, SmartKem

Overview

This is a retained engagement to support the capital raise following Investment Analysis, with 2 different options depending on the level of support required:

Guided Campaign: For companies managing their own funding campaigns, this layers in a level of expert guidance through the entire process together with select introductions to target investors if required. Usually appropriate for Seed stage rounds. Read more in our blog.

Managed Campaign: For companies that require full project management support of the funding campaign, from materials development to money in the bank. Usually appropriate for Venture (Series A) & Growth stage rounds.

The key elements include:
Investor pitch best practice
Investor meeting preparation and debrief
Special advice on remote pitching
Term Sheet assessment 
Due Diligence preparation
Investment Agreement critique

We have helped clients raise over $400M across a range of transactions including Seed, Series A, Series B, MBOs, sale of business, and other more complex financial restructurings.
