Frequent Asked Questions

How Does Your Success Fee Work?
We charge a 7% commission on any funds raised. If we are not successful in raising capital, there is no fee.

In most cases we will opt to re-invest our commission back into your business and take a small shareholding. This provides confidence to investors.

What information do I need for my application?
We have included an online form with our application process. It takes about 10 minutes to fill in and you have the option to also attach your pitch deck, business plan or short presentation. If you don’t have any of these documents ready you can still apply for funding.

Before we present your business to investors we will always help you polish your pitch deck and make it investor ready. We also have a number of free tools and pitch deck templates we can share with you.

What industries do you invest in?
We have access to investors with interests in every industry vertical. Rather than focus only on one industry, we place greater weight on the business opportunity you are pursuing and your management team.
What are the typical funding sizes?
For early stage Seed Investments we typically see investment rounds of $250,000 to $2M. For established companies these can be between $2M to $10M. We can assist companies at any stage of their development – from startup to pre-IPO.
Why do I have to pay the Application Fee?
We charge a small $220 application fee. It is important that your application is not crowded out by frivolous submissions. We want to ensure we give your business opportunity the consideration it deserves.

We take our time to review your application and seriously consider all the funding options for you. We provide valuable feedback to every applicant. The application fee is non-refundable.

What happens if my Application is successful?
We work with you to refine and polish your pitch deck and investor presentations. We’ll then present and promote your business to our network of investors and negotiate the terms of your fundraising.
What happens if my Application is NOT successful?
As well as determining suitability for funding, we provide you with a valuable report including feedback and advice on your business, strategies to get investor ready, and much more.
