Management may invite additional skills to the executive team when raising capital in exchange for selling equity in the company. In a debt investment, you loan money to a business, or a government institution and your profit is not directly related to the performance of the borrower.

In an equity investment, you buy into a company and your profit is related to the performance of the company. Debt finance is a strategy many business owners consider to fund growth or acquire another business.

Over time, equity based investments will provide higher rates of return than debt based investments. Capital raising should include a alternative finance mix of debt and equity to manage risk and return.

    Accrutus Capital Raising Services

    Vital to getting Investor Ready, we will discuss your successful business model to determine your company value and growth potential. Prior to commencing the capital raising program, we will work with you to build the business plan around your unique business model. To ensure the company attracts the right private investors to help you realize its full potential.

    The investor is not that interested in your business, your product, market or what customers think of the product or service. Importantly, investors want proof of a ‘compelling investment opportunity’. Private investors must be convinced that their investment funds will enable a successful exit event. Therefore achieving the expected return on their investment. A successful capital raising starts and ends with how the company is going to make investors money. The Investor Ready program will prepare business owners for the investor due diligence process to establish key assumptions. Important to demonstrate ‘how’ the company is prepared to scale and when the anticipated exit will be achieved.
