Raising Capital From Series A to Series E

AdobeStock_201061041.jpeg

As the business leader, you're expected to deliver the cash required to scale your business and achieve the vision. 

 

A lack of access to capital is one of the most common reasons businesses fail at all stages of development.  While fundraising is critical to future success, you can’t spend all of your time in investor meetings when you’ve a business to run. 

 

Let us take the load off. 

 

Achieve your raise the smart and efficient way, well before you lose runway so that you can focus on building your business. 

 

Take the next step in your business with aligned investors you enjoy working with. 

 

Be the leader who delivers despite market conditions, on time and with ease - a leader who maintains control of their destiny.  

4 Steps

Our 4-Step Plan to a Successful Fund Raise

Step 1

Strategise

Invest in a Fund Raise Strategy to roadmap your growth funding journey.

Let us analyse your Company to understand core assets and capabilities and overlay this with our knowledge of the tech and investor ecosystems. Together we'll clarify your exit vision and define a funded path to exit that maximises your chances of a successful outcome. 

Step 2

Promote

Get promotion-ready with confidence.

Your business will be able to demonstrate the key metrics your investor will expect. You’ll also feel informed and prepared for investor meetings as a result of education on the process, language and expectations; and be ready to story-tell and able to handle any questions.

Step 3

Negotiate

Meet aligned investors and reach your funding goal.

You’ll be introduced to aligned investors within your ecosystem that have the capital and conviction to invest. We'll work to achieve multiple offers to give you a sense of your business' true market value and create enough market tension to keep you firmly in the driving seat. 

Step 4

Deploy

Deploy capital effectively and maximise your runway.

You’ll be guided to efficiently deploy the capital you raise to meet your business vision. This process will maximise your runway by optimising your burn rate, ensuring that you raise future rounds proactively according to your Fund Raise Strategy (as opposed to raising reactively due to need).

Antony and his Executive Team came to Bean Partners for support with a capital raise, and the subsequent deployment of that capital in preparation for, and execution of, the business sale. The team’s objectives were to sell to a great buyer, achieving a good outcome for investors and the Executive Team. The business sold to YouGov, achieving all of the teams objectives. 

 

“As Chair, my role is to deal with competing stakeholder priorities, and the buck ultimately stops with me. Bean Partners helped me personally to be a better diplomat, and more broadly really guided our team through the process. We were able to pin every decision back to the evidence provided by the intelligence, giving us confidence and clarity in our decisions and stakeholder communications."
