How we meet your needs

  • Portfolio management: Investors minimise value erosion by providing hands-on operational expertise and support to their portfolio companies. However, investors should work towards setting up operational support capabilities that are scalable, value-adding, and accessible by portfolio companies regardless of their growth stage. Through our in-house operations toolkit we help investors consistently factor operational considerations into the startup investment process
  • Global deal flow networks: Leveraging our extensive connections and global relationships, we are committed to providing you with a customised and tailored deal flow experience. Our dedicated team curates a diverse range of deals which aligns with your specific investment preferences and objectives.
  • Due diligence: The crowded startup industry can be challenging to navigate. We can help you validate startup potential with due diligence in areas including tax, commercial, financial, operations and risk, legal and compliance, and ESG.

  • Capital raising: Fundraising for your startup can be complicated. Our capital raising services are designed to hold your hands and guide you through the complex and overwhelming process every step of the way. Our services aim to assist startups in raising capital by ensuring that they are fully prepared for their investor raise.
  • Tax: Given the diversity of talent and business opportunities globally, your group may have wide footprint from a tax perspective. By leveraging the technical capabilities and experience of our global network specialists in the crypto and web3 space, our services can help your group navigate the increasingly complex international tax environment.
  • Accounting: Accounting can be a complex and challenging aspect of running a startup, especially when it comes to pulling together financial information that can be understood by investors whilst being mindful of accounting rules. Our advisory toolkit provides clients with the tools and resources they need to best understand how their business model fits into accounting guidelines. We work with startups to review their financial information and identify areas where they can improve their accounting practices.
  • Cyber, risk and governance: In a rapidly changing business environment, it is essential to have proper cyber, risk, governance, and controls in place to minimise value erosion. Our services are designed to support growing startups by ensuring that they have the appropriate processes in place to manage risk effectively ensuring privacy and consumer protection. We work with startups to identify potential risks and develop strategies to mitigate them.
  • Legal and regulatory: Identifying the next unicorn is just the start of the journey in startup investing. Equipped with local knowledge and a globally connected legal and regulatory network, our lawyers can help you navigate the venture and growth capital investment process. Powered by legal tech tools, our team stands ready to protect your investment by advising on a full spectrum of matters, including transaction structuring, shareholder rights and cap table management, business restructuring, financing arrangements, talent management and incentive schemes, IP and data protection, regulatory compliance (including the specific requirements for digital assets and emerging tech focused companies), exit planning and more.
