Financing stages we serve in
The focus here remains on helping innovative companies that are still in the process of being formed. Funds may be used to transform the idea into a business plan and to access market potential. Seed capital generally supports product development and/ or marketing efforts, including market research. Early stage financing may be provided to initiate commercial production and sales. This point is generally the first stage at which we work upon our base of Venture Capitalists and HNI individuals that might be interested in taking a stake as per our valuation report for the company.
Later stage financing (expansion Venture Capital) is provided after commercial production and sales have begun but before any IPO. Funds may be used for initial expansion of a company already producing and selling a product or for major expansion, such as physical plant expansion, product improvement, or a major market campaign.
A third stage financing, Mezzaninee capital is provided to prepare a company to go public. It represents the bridge financing needed to fund a private firm until it can complete an IPO. Mezzanine venture capital shall too be arranged for major expansion, or for aggressive marketing of company’s service for awareness and adoption.

Mezzanine financing refers to a combination of debt and equity financing. Mezzanine financing is typically used by expanding companies that need money but don’t want to go public and risk losing ownership of the company. Mezzanine lenders offer the company the desired funds and do not require collateral.
Since, the risk here is more, the expected return seeking of the mezzanine lenders too remains high.
