Find the Right Funding for You
Lenders & Funding
Funding will depend on your requirements and risk tolerance to pay the monies back and what kind of return on investment you are offering to the investor. Securing funding is never easy or straightforward, however, we endeavour to make all negotiations as easy and transparent as possible. Below are the type of avenues we can pursue to secure funding.
A venture capitalist is an investor who either provides capital to startup ventures or supports small companies that wish to expand but do not have access to funds. Venture capital is money that is given to help build new startups that are considered to have both high-growth and high-risk potential.
Fast-growth companies with an exit strategy already in place can gain up to tens of millions of dollars that can be used to invest, network, and grow their company frequently. As long as a business is viable and is built with the future in mind, it has a great chance of getting sponsorship from venture capitalists.
A private investment fund is an investment company that does not solicit capital from retail investors or the general public. There is an advantage to maintaining private investment fund status, as the regulatory and legal requirements are much lower than what is required for funds that are traded publicly.
It is better to have more than one investor in a company because they will not interfere in the running of the business. A group of investors can come up with solutions to move the company forward.

Private Equity investors raise pools of capital from limited partners, Pension Funds, and High Net Worth Individuals, forming a lending platform - also known as a private equity fund. Once they've hit their fundraising goal, they close the fund and invest that capital into promising companies.
Private Equity investors are quick to react but expect a high return on investment and will sell their shares at the quickest possible opportunity.
Asset-Based Investment and Leasing
In an asset-based investment, the investor is making their investment based on the valuation of some held asset that the borrower has - and so, that asset acts as collateral. For example, if a company has bought a new piece of equipment at the cost of $75,000, it can borrow against that asset.
Quick decisions are made depending on the loan to value of the asset and the lender may require a floating debenture. This means minimum interference with the running of the company and will allow advantages for the selling and purchase of the assets.
Rachet Back Funding
A ratchet is a term whereby, if another VC later pays a lower price for shares in your start-up the VC that bought shares earlier with the 'ratchet' protection gets a price adjustment to that lower price.
What this means, an agreement with the investing source on the basis of the company achieving its aims or exceeding them, the investor reduces their shareholdings in the company.
The majority of new small businesses are funded with debt financing, predominately via bank loans or bonds. Debt financing is the act of borrowing money from an outside party with the agreement that you will pay the initial principal back with a negotiated level of interest.
The advantage of debt finance you do not have outside shareholders wanting information from the company. The disadvantage you cannot miss an interest or loan repayment as this will then mean the leader will come involved with the business.
A family office is a privately held company that handles investment management and wealth management for a wealthy family, generally one with over $100 million in investable assets, with the goal being to effectively grow and transfer wealth across generations.

An angel investor is an individual, or a group of individuals, lending capital to those needing to raise funds to run their business. Angel investors invest in start-up companies in exchange for a return on their investment.
These investors have helped to start up many prominent companies in the United States today, and they still remain a great source of finance for small businesses.
