About the Service
I can provide an initial assessment of your startup in terms of its appeal to investors or otherwise.
1. We shall first check if you are ready for a valuation basis your market traction & revenue stream (i.e. your unique value proposition, number of live paid customers & pipeline of leads & ability to convince investors about the attractiveness & investment worthyness of your business)
2. According to the outcome from the first step, we can then aim to work together to create an investor's deck that includes the following areas:
· Company description
· Targeted audience (Market size)
· Business (Revenue) Model
· Competitive analysis
· Competitive advantage (USP)
· Marketing Strategy
· Fund required $
· Usage of fund
· Financial Plan
At the end of this service, you will have a reasonable view on the readiness of your startup for pre-seed/seed funding from investors, and the pitch deck ready to initiate your funding journey.
The exercise could take about 3 calls along with offline reviews (estimating from *3 hours upwards depending upon the status of your readiness & pitch deck) by the advisor , where we shall review your startup and your needs & then start working on the pitch deck.
*the total time taken to complete the exercise will be shared in advance of undertaking the work - this will be arrived at after looking at the initial pitch deck & information about the startup shared ahead of the engagement.
