Dear ,  

Welcome to the May 2019 edition of Funding Strategies Connect!

We frequently receive enquiries about raising capital and providing distribution of a company's investment proposal to investors. Clients range from companies looking for venture capital to companies seeking IPO funding via a prospectus. 

We have a large investor database to send proposals to and depending on the type of raise (under the Corporations Act) we can distribute to between 15,000 to 30,000 potential investors. 

We have raised millions of dollars over the years and are very transparent with our clients on the progress of their capital raise. 

Below is an image of some of the reporting we provide around capital raising and distribution. If we can assist with your capital raise please contact us

As part of our commitment to our investors and clients we are currently upgrading our website. I look forward to sharing the new version with you soon!
