In conjunction with the largest Business Angels network in Europe, our strength is in raising capital between 100,000 and 2 million. It is this range that is generally regarded as the most difficult. We have no preferences on sector, since our investor contacts have a very wide range of interests. Often these companies also need the skills and contacts that experienced 'Business Angels' can bring. Our job is to match the two.

Our fees are mainly success based - with a percentage in cash and option shares, based on the amount of funding we introduce. There is a modest project management fee to reflect the expenses and work required to prepare, authorise and market the proposition.

Firstly we will review the business plan and meet the management team. Where we believe we can find the right private investor among our 1500 or so contacts on our Investor Register, we will advise on the business plan and the deal structure.

Then, when we have an investment proposal that is sensible for our client and sufficiently attractive to business angels investors, we will market the business. We market our client through direct personal contact with investors based on our close knowledge of their needs.

We mail our entire investor and contact base of over 3000 with our regular 'Stop Press'. We regularly hold Investor Fairs where our clients can meet directly with investors.

We then project manage to completion. This includes the investor negotiations, and advice on the legal formalities - indeed everything that needs to be done to ensure a satisfactory conclusion - that is where our extensive experience in venture capital fund raising comes into its own.

John,

You mention modest project management fees, how are these calculated? Can you give example rates?

Are the fees linked to successfully securing the funds?

Most - but not all - of our fees are success based. Happy to give your more details if you email me directly
