Yes, you can. If you don't complete the submission, your fundraising deal will automatically save to draft until you decide to finally complete and submit. However, we will not analyse your deal until submission is complete.
It depends on how eager and committed your company is toward fundraising. The sooner you pass over the information the sooner we can fully asses and screen your deal. Traditionally, past company's that succeeded in fundraising through Fundnel completed this process within 1-2 weeks.
Our proprietary data rich technology takes into account a vast array of data points provided by your company, together with publicly available information and other benchmarking data sets that is used to screen and yield our Fundnel Factor deal score. All deals that we have successfully funded and which have gone onto big things, have come out positive through the Fundnel Factor.
If your company deal score is not inline with our benchmarking or if your deal for some reason does not meet our minimum accepted criteria, your deal may be rejected. We will of course communicate this decision with you and provide support.
Step 3: Deal creation & publication
At this stage, your deal has been screened and deemed suitable for investor targeting. We now rally our deal analysts, marketing, legal and compliance teams around your investor-ready deal information pack.
Yes, many of the companies we work give final approval before the deal is publicly promoted and published. But, again this is entirely up to you. Before we get to creating your deal campaign and its supporting documentation, your company will need to sign and agree to engagement terms. At this time of agreeing to engagement terms, you can specify if you wish to approve materials or allow Fundnel to represent without the need for back and forth approvals.
Yes, if you company has concerns about protecting its identify from competitors or you wish to remain anonymous behind a deal code name until a lead investor is secured, we can structure your deal through anonymity.
The period of deal publication is entirely up to your company and its deal structure. You determine the deadline for close, and which can be specified in our engagement terms. Once the deal expires, the deal is unpublished from our deal platform according to request. It can always be re-published, re-marketed and or re-structured at a later stage.
Step 4: 8000+ Targeted investor syndication
Option to secure lead investor
Once your deal has been published, we utilise a lead-investor model to set terms of an anchor investment, and therefore determine valuation, pricing and key terms.
It depends on your company, its deal structure and valuation. If the deal pricing and terms are to be established, then a lead investor is more then likely required. If the valuation and terms are pre-defined then there is no need and your company can raise funds through investor syndication.
It's our job over here at Fundnel to target our investor network with the goal toward securing a lead investor for your deal. There is still zero cost at this point. Remember, we only charge our fee (<5%) when your deal successfully raises funds. You deal is published live on our deal platform, and strategically marketed and promoted with the goal toward securing a lead investor.
Targeted investor syndication
Our technology enables clever profiling and investor targeting, ensuring your deal gets noticed by the right investors across the timeframe of your fundraising campaign.
Every one of our investors have indicated their deal specific preferences, thereby indicating their exact interests in deal from around the globe.
Investors set their preferences according to the following:
1. Fundraising type (seed, founders, series A - D, pre-IPO, opex, capex etc)
2. Global regions of interest
3. Industry and sector type
4. Deal type (equity, debt, funds etc)
In addition to the above, investor event history and other data points enable clever matching.
Investors are promoted your deal in a coupled of ways:
1. Directly via the online deal platform, based on their expressions of interest
2. Offline investor engagement. Our business development and deal teams personally meet and engage with investors to actively promote your deal.
