Funding Plan

Investment Analysis

"The investment analysis work that Duet does is first class, invaluable and worth every penny. I’d recommend it to any business looking to scale-up and seize every growth opportunity along the way."

Merlie Calvert, Founder & CEO, Farillio


Investment Analysis allows companies to develop the optimal funding plan without having to commit entirely to the process. 

Preparing for the next funding round, whether st Seed, Venture or Growth stages, requires a number of important questions to be answered well ahead of starting the campaign. That’s why we intentionally separate this vital preparatory step from the funding process itself. 

Clear insights from in-depth market research enable us to:

Identify the latest investment trends in your sector 
Confirm which investors you should target based on their track record
Detail how investors will evaluate your investment proposition, and
Determine the best funding strategy

This is all captured in a Board level report.

Investment Analysis creates a solid foundation on which to plan the funding journey - a constant reference point as the business model is validated, then scaled.

Key Elements


Using the very latest investment research from over 40,000 UK fundraisings by over 8,000 funds, we gather in depth market intelligence in the sector, research the key investment trends, analyze comparator deals, and identify active investor types. These deep insights inform our recommendations.


We assess the investment proposition using the same criteria that investors will employ. Using a gap analysis we then optimize to match these target investor criteria as closely as possible. A prioritised action plan is developed to accelerate investment readiness, ensuring alignment with the key investment phasing milestones (Series A, Series B,..).


We assess funding options and create a roadmap for funding success. Target investors are identified based on track record and reputation. In addition to the VC community we have access to a broad network of Corporate Venture funds, Family Offices and other sources of specialist Private Equity that are looking for unique investment opportunities.
