At this stage we arrived at the final level that is called scale. You as an entrepreneur or business owner can decide to choose one of these three options on what do next.
Option A – Business Innovation: Maybe you simply want to innovate your current business model and create a new business line focusing on new markets, while keeping the current business operations. This is where we support the you on business model innovation and basically creating a new startup within the current business. In fact, if your company is in Germany, there is €1M per year available for the next 5yrs for companies engaging in innovative projects. The Finanzamt wishes to fund and promote innovation in Germany just like other OECD countries support indigenous companies. We help you get that!
Option B – Internationalisation: Maybe you are happy with your current business and want to broaden the scope of dream buyers on an international level. There are 3 different kind of strategies for internationalisation you can use to achieve this goal. So international expansion is your option B and we can see how our international network can help you achieve your international goals.
Option C – Investment Funding: Maybe you want to get funding from Investors to scale faster on a regional or international level or maybe you want investors to buy your venture and go for a business exit. By this point, we already have done all the important homework to go for this step, since have been building the business thinking like an investor.
If you want to get investment funding, then this is where we help the business to run smoothly within the entire investment phase. From pre-seed, seed to series A. So we either facilitate with other business angels, VCs and financing consultants or we just do the match making, without investing our own money or we do coaching, in the background, helping the business, preparing the pitch deck, how to pitch to an investor, which language to use and which wordings to use. We can also go on a more active approach, where we are more actively involved as some sort of shadow CFO, as our face to the investors, where we help the business to run through the entire financing phase.
