How our Next Round programme works...


by updating your suite of investment documents, ensuring they are fit for purpose with a clear investor proposition. This includes the pitch deck & investor FAQ made up of the value proposition, market size, go-to-market plan and competitor analysis, a financial model (where we spend a significant proportion of time, typically re-building it), valuation benchmarks & methodologies, and the data room. It also includes practicing and perfecting the pitch.


and evaluate the proposition from an investors perspective, to ensure that there are no gaps in the value proposition, areas of weaknesses are resolved, and compelling narrative prepared to justify the strength of the scaling potential.


the most appropriate funding options by mapping the investor and lender population based on the profile of your business, and the growth aspirations of the management team.


you to relevant investors and lenders by tapping into our network of 1,800 VCs, corporates, family offices, and venture debt providers.


the best deal available by levelling the playing field and building competitive tensions, leveraging our knowledge of the market. Lawyers do not typically address the key commercial issues, and the reality is that most only get involved when the term sheet is signed.


the chances of a smooth due diligence process by avoiding common mistakes and speeding up the process between signing the term sheet and receiving the investment.

We only partner with the most ambitious and game-changing companies, and work 100% at risk as your interim fundraising specific CFO and advisor, throughout your fundraising journey.
