Venture capital company financing preparation phase
Determining the growth strategy
We arrange a couple of meetings to assess your growth strategy to develop a business plan. The growth strategy is based on where you want to be in 5 years time, what action you need to take to get there and what the consequences from these actions will be.
Determining the financing requirements
The business plan shall be used to draw up a long-range budget. Besides a results-based budget, this budget also includes a liquidity budget which details, amongst other things, investments in assets and operating capital. The financing requirements can be determined on the basis of the liquidity budget.

Venture capital company financing due diligence phase
Coordinating the due diligence
Between the signing of the letter of intent and the final purchase agreement, the private equity company has the opportunity to verify the correctness and completeness of the information and administration provided. This phase is the so-called due diligence. Often purchasers want their advisors to investigate various fields, such as financial, legal, staffing and organization, the environment, fiscal, insurance, operational, etc. The collection of all this information without staff knowing about it or cooperating is a time-consuming process. The information is collected in a (digital) data room.
