Our investment process step by step
Just like any other collaboration, it is important for us to get to know our new partners. We would like to meet the startup founder and team in order to get a better understanding of what the idea encompasses and what the team is capable of. To give you a better idea of what our investment process entails, here’s an overview.
Meeting: Let's talk!
As a first step, we will invite you to an initial meeting to give you the opportunity to present your idea and learn more about how we can help. We will review your proposal and discuss the goals, motivations, market, and strategies of your business. This will help us get to know each other and see whether our way of operating is the right fit for you and your company.
Should the initial meeting prove successful, the next step is to explore the industry that your product or service will be a part of. Together, we will examine to what extent your idea fits the market needs and whether potential consumers will be interested in it. We will also examine what stage your technology is currently in, in order to get an idea of what still lies ahead of us.
Milestones: definitions & financials
After having validated the technology and the market, it is time to set up the milestones and discuss the financials. By doing this, we will get a better understanding about how your startup will develop and how much capital is required.
Contract: term sheet
Once we have gone through the previous steps and all milestones have been agreed upon, we will draft a term sheet and present it to you and your team. The term sheet is a summary of all the terms and conditions that we will base our investment on.
Start: make it official!
If both parties agree upon the term sheet, in the case of an investment on equity, it will be sent to the notary, who can then formalize the company. After signing all deeds, it is time to celebrate and accelerate the development of your business!
Grow: your business
As investors, we keep close track of the company’s needs. We stay engaged and would like to act as sounding boards if necessary and requested by the management.
