Fundraising



Navigating Funding Maze with NovAzure

  • When is the right time to seek professional support to raise?
    • In the early stages, you might be able to raise money yourself – so-called bootstrapping by funding yourself, family and friends.  At some point, you might need external sources of funds to grow.
    • When you are approaching this point it might be wise to speak to a few advisers to understand your options.
    • Several factors will determine the right time for your raises.  Some are internal and others external.  NovAzure 
  • What should be my company’s valuation?
    • Whilst it is tempting to want to maximise the valuation, it is a balancing act.  Investors will closely scrutinise the evidence for reaching any pre-and post-money valuation.
    • NovAzure has 13 different industry approaches at its disposal to determine a valuation.  We walk our clients through the relevant ones and agree a credible level to appeal and resonate with target investors. 
  • Who should I target as investors?
    • Different investors will each have their own investment criteria that they apply to identify a good fit.
    • At NovAzure, we work with more than 200 investors of many different types to identify a good match.
  • What about grant funding?
    • Grants can be an important source of finance, particularly in the early stages before you have a track-record of sales.
    • We work with grant specialist partners to navigate the often complex and constantly shifting landscape of grants with our clients.
  • What if you don’t have a lot of IP?
    • Some types of investors will be seeking solid evidence of IP and IP protection measures.
    • It’s not the same for all, so please reach out to us to discuss your needs
  • What’s required in a credible IM and set up a data room?
    • Investors are looking to identify companies that meet their own investment criteria for stage of development, industry, etc.  But all will be keen to evaluate the robustness of the business in terms of its team, its finances and growth pipeline.
    • NovAzure has helped many companies to shape compelling IM documentation and data rooms.
