Working with advisors

More often than not, we invest with Founders and entrepreneurs who have been advised by corporate finance advisors. We think that’s very sensible. After all, you’re realising the value of your life’s work and it makes sense that you test the market to make sure that you achieve the maximum valuation for your business.

If you’re a Founder looking for an advisor, we can introduce you to some of the best ones in the country. In addition to valuation transparency, in a good advisor, you can get insight to the behaviours, culture and track record of your investor and help to manage the inevitable distraction that an M&A process will bring.

Likewise, if you’re an advisor with your eye on some amazing businesses looking to scale at pace, we want to hear from you.
