A Transparent pathway to Funding for Startups
Once the form is submitted, we at TheBiznesLab™ receive a profile and a record of the application, allowing us to consider the details and determine it’s match to any of our portfolio categories. This automatically creates a record for our internal dealflow pipeline system. This will then be reviewed and the applicant notified if their application will be progressing to the next stage or not.
Once an application passes the Internal Review process, it will then be passed onto the funding board who will conduct a further review to determine it’s viability and strengths. This process is conducted by our team and the investors in our network. At this stage, members may require further information – deep diving into the business to review the model, opportunities and or identify where it might need strengthening to build a case for possible investment fit.
Successful applications that make it through to this stage will be notified and invited to meet the team (usually via a phone call). This meeting will be with a member of TheBiznesLab™ Team or partner. This meeting is usually to seek further clarification and answers to any questions arising from the internal and Investor Review process. It is also an opportunity to get to know more about the business from the Founders.
This is by no means the end of the interactive process. At this stage, any applicants making it through to the final stage is then invited to present their business to the Network of Investors, hosted by TheBiznesLab™ Team. This usually lasts for about an hour and it’s your opportunity to bring a number of investors to your project. There will be opportunities for a Q&A Session as well as following up with with Founders on any key areas that need further clarification. All applicants/founders will be contacted within seven days from their presentation and those that are unsuccessful will receive feedback to help them identify where things went wrong.
