Helping businesses understand the options, prepare applications and gain access to funding.
Whatever stage you're at in the business life cycle, the need for adequate funding will be imperative. Whatever your plans are for growth, whether it's organic or via acquisition, you'll likely be facing the significant question of how to finance business expansion?
Thankfully at Wellers help is at hand to understand your requirements, guide you through the different sources of finance, and help you and your business prepare for raising finance.
Which type of finance?
From short term working capital requirements to the type of long term financing that might be associated with business acquisitions and major capital investment, the issue of whether debt or equity finance is best for your business will need to be considered carefully.
The funding options available to you
Our approach is to work with you to understand how and why your funding requirement has arisen. Then we would discuss the various options available to you within the framework of your strategy and what you are looking to pursue.
An analysis of what is best for your needs
We then highlight the differing characteristics of each type of funding available to you, covering the various costs, benefits and obligations that are typical of each option. We can also construct financial modelling to illustrate the impact of those different options on your cash position and working capital to enable you to make the most informed decision possible.
Introductions to sources of finance
At the point that you’re comfortable with the type of funding that best suits your business needs we would then be able to make the necessary introductions to business angels, banks, venture capitalists and other specialist lenders to ensure you access the necessary finance.
