Fundraising is a crucial moment in the life cycle of any business. The arrival of an outside investor requires thorough preparation in several areas. Many questions arise, such as “What form of financing are you looking for?”, “What is the expected return?”, “How will the company be valued?” or “How will the board and management be composed?


Fundraising in SMEs

The need for external financing may be related to the strong growth of the company, major investment projects coming up or an acquisition presenting itself. It can also result from an internal need: when some shareholders want to exit the capital or when a rearrangement of the existing financing structure is needed.


Thanks to our combined knowledge and expertise in financial, legal and tax matters, deminor NXT offers you professional guidance throughout the entire fundraising process. On the one hand, we help you to identify your financing needs and substantiate them objectively for the financiers or investors. On the other hand, we assist you in the negotiations.
