Our capital raising process follows clearly defined steps to ensure optimal capital is obtained from the right investors while protecting the interests of our clients across all funding stages (Series A to Pre-IPO).

Steps of a Capital Raise

Phase A: Preparation

  1. 90-Point Diagnostic Test: Stirling Growth Capital’s in-house methodology does a 360-degree, 90-point check to evaluate a company’s technology, business model, growth strategy and financial performance, as part of our due diligence. We perform a detailed analysis covering scientific readiness of new technologies, business fundamentals, customer related metrics, market opportunities and regulatory barriers.
  1. Advice on preparation for capital raise (optional): Our firm can advise on opportunities for improvement identified during the 90-point diagnostic test, improving the company profile for the capital providers most relevant to our client.

At the end of the preparation phase, we position to company to achieve an optimal valuation for a successful capital raise.

Phase B: Activation

  1. Capital raise execution: We will build a Capital Raise Action Plan by defining the optimal sources of capital, developing marketing materials, scheduling roadshows with potential investors and establishing detailed timelines. Subsequently, our team will lead the action plan execution from beginning to end, leading negotiations with institutional investors and listed firms, protecting the interest and advising on the most convenient deal for our clients.
