A smooth process from start to finish.

Our team is here to help you secure a mutually-beneficial and timely investment.

One

We take time to fully understand your business, expectations and growth strategy.

We simultaneously help investors select the best-matched businesses from our database, and introduce investors to you.

Two

If you are interested in the candidate, we arrange a meeting where the outlines of a potential investment deal are discussed.

If both sides wish to progress, further meetings are convened to negotiate terms, assisted by us.

Three

Once an agreement is reached, Heads of Terms are signed by both parties detailing the investment terms.

An unpaid work shadowing placement is recommended to facilitate a productive working relationship and assist with the Home Office application.

Four

The application is submitted to the Home Office, who make a decision within 4 weeks. We assist the investor and yourselves throughout the process.

On approval, the final investment agreement documentation is signed and the investor joins your team.
