Investment Readiness Programme

The Investment Readiness Programme is designed to get your business Investment Ready.

It is often the case that many good businesses are simply unfundable, at least in the shape that they come to us, for a number of reasons – poor strategy, operational problems, lack of management strength, inadequate business plans, poor presentation of business to investors, etc., etc. Our job is to help them overcome the barriers they face and also to look at other avenues forward.

We work with you…

Once appointed, we will quickly review the business and its proposition, if we believe that the business proposition is viable, we will discuss the potential ways forward with the senior team or owners and agree what needs to be done before the business proposition can be presented to investors.  We also look for alternative ways ahead – because a funding solution is not always the best way forward and because the availability of funding cannot be guaranteed.

This process involves looking at the company’s weaknesses and general operations – this may throw-up other actions to be taken to improve the business, profitability, cash flow, etc. Sometimes funding is not actually required after corrective changes are made!
