We specialise in readying your SME or Social Enterprises to attract finance by introducing you to the corporate finance platform that is most appropriate for your company’s profile.
We do this by helping you to put in place The Five Foundations for Growth which, in turn reduce your legal risk, and by working with you to produce the required ‘Pitch Deck’. We have prepared a downloadable booklet on the Five Foundations for Growth. Please click here to obtain your copy.
Most entrepreneurs/founders will know the statistics – SMEs make up 99.9% of private sector businesses and 60% of private sector jobs, they also employ 16.5 million people and contribute £1.8 trillion to the national wealth BUT 80% of SMEs fail in the first 5 years.
It is less well known that, on average, each SME has to deal with 8 legal cases each year. The most common legal matters relate to employees and suppliers, regulatory matters, tax and disputes with customers and the costs attributable to legal failures amount to £13.6bn.
These statistics show that failure to take legal advice is enough to destroy most businesses no matter how well they are doing.
Costs of legal failures will be minimised by you undertaking proper legal risk management designed to stop sudden expenses or claims that drive you off course or out of business. Putting in place The Five Foundations for Growth will achieve that and put your business in a position to attract finance.
The ‘Pitch Deck’:
To raise finance, you will need a Pitch Deck. This is a presentation, that you will use to provide your audience with an overview of your strategic and business plans. You’ll be using your pitch deck during face-to-face or online meetings with potential investors, customers, partners, and co-founders.
We can help you tailor one for your specific business and finance requirements that covers the 12 key points that investors will expect to see.
