Many early stage and middle market companies often find that their ability to grow their company by investing in new products, services or markets is constrained due to a lack of available capital. UNICON can help entrepreneurs successfully raise private equity, subordinated debt and senior debt to provide owners of high growth companies with the opportunity to accelerate their growth.
After completing a business plan, the first big hurdle in attracting private capital is garnering the attention of venture funds. Capital sources will generally review thousands of deals per year and make their initial determination of interest based upon a cursory review of the business plan presented to them. With only a limited opportunity to catch the attention of investors, companies need to put their best foot forward right from the start. UNICON has relationships within the Capital Financing community and understands the intricacies of the capital markets. UNICON will work with its clients to present a story which highlights historical performance while stressing future value.
