Engagement Model

Our model is to provide tailored support at all stages of the funding process, from early planning and preparation, through materials development, to investor engagement and closure.

We engage in the build up to pre-Series A, Series A, and Series B rounds and provide support to companies right through this entire funding journey, often for multiple rounds. 

We undertake funding mandates on behalf of clients (for Series A & B only) but are also retained to coach businesses through the entire funding process (pre-Series A onwards).

Key Elements


The creation of the funding plan using the Investment Analysis process is usually the first step in any new client relationship. This is a collaborative effort that stress tests the investment proposition and develops the funding strategy through profitability. This is either delivered as a fixed fee project over a two-week period, or as part of a retained engagement.


This is the engagement to raise capital, which we undertake on the basis of a retainer plus a success fee. With a Series A and B focus, we have also advised on financial restructurings , MBOs, and cross border transactions into the US.


These are tailored engagements to deliver specialist support during periods of transition, starting at pre-Series A. Undertaken as either fixed fee project or retained service, depending on the requirements and the timescales involved.
