Exceed your growth plans with VestDeck

If you’re a growth company needing to raise equity finance, you will be keen to get the highest valuation possible. Your existing shareholders deserve it for taking the early risk and your new shareholders will have greater confidence that you will use their investment to drive up future valuations and provide a good return for them.

The VestDeck investor relations platform helps to achieve these results.

VestDeck has elected to raise its own funds through its legacy database and social network. Participants will be early adopters and beneficiaries of the platform and will help enhance and test the technology. Therefore, investors in VestDeck will obtain benefits across their whole portfolio of unlisted companies as well as the potential to gain a significant return from their investment in VestDeck itself.

The Idea

The explosion of crowdfunding means that many more of us can now participate in these exciting investment opportunities, but our appetite for information about company progress is difficult to satisfy. VestDeck’s investor relations platform will change this for the mutual benefit of both investors and companies. Investors will be more able to participate in the buzz of growth, whilst businesses will build brand momentum quicker and find willing investors for its next round of investment.

VestDeck will also connect businesses to professional services firms, such as accountants, lawyers, IT, marketing and PR agencies.

The Benefits

An Investor Interactions platform for unlisted companies that connects businesses to existing and potential investors.

The VestDeck platform makes it easier for growth companies to:

  • Raise future growth capital from existing and new investors
  • Achieve a valuation that minimises dilution for shareholders
  • Align strategy to deliver increasing valuation of the business
  • Harness the resource of shareholders for wisdom and market insight
  • Attract funds from investors normally backing ‘later-stage’ opportunities
  • Helps companies that require multiple investment rounds to grow rapidly

It also provides an easy presentation of funding rounds, road-maps, milestones, announcements and shareholder feedback to facilitate debate in the boardroom creating a virtuous circle and growth.

VestDeck is not a fund-raising platform, which means it can enhance any combination of funding options.

The Market

Investor or shareholder relations, the engagement between companies and those who invest in them, has been flagged globally as a key corporate asset. We believe investor relations could become one of the best methods to help growth companies access cash and ensure investors are placed on an equal playing field with the companies they invest in.

The VestDeck platform will connect the following three audiences:

     

  1. Businesses - Make it easier to raise funds to ensure timely growth
  2. Investors - Help find good opportunities, follow progress and manage a portfolio
  3. Professionals - Increase the efficiency of finding and working with growth companies

Exit Strategy

The strategy is to float the business or to be acquired by a larger organisation within 3-5 years.

Potential acquirers include:

  • Crowdfunding platforms, perhaps acting as a consortium
  • Business software providers, targeting early access to growth companies
  • Business funding specialists, such as venture capital or private equity firms

Projected Return

VestDeck’s target is to reach 2,000 client companies within three years to achieve a revenue of GBP 2.5 million.

Problem and Solution

  • Investing in early stage businesses can lead to higher returns and tax benefits, but can also be more risky
  • Investors are also nervous about dilution and a lack of liquidity

VestDeck will help investors enjoy the benefits of investing in early stage businesses whilst minimising the risks. We aim to achieve this through enhanced communication between businesses and investors to aid growth, increase valuation and minimise dilution, to include improving liquidity through an indicative secondary market trading platform.

What Differentiates Us?

VestDeck aims to create a platform that:

  • Eases the act of follow-on funding for businesses
  • Promotes, rewards and enables investor relations
  • Enables investors to enjoy and participate in the buzz
  • Grants investors visibility and choice when making investments
  • Provides an indicative trading platform for the secondary market

The next stage is to complete our 2018 development cycle and launch the first phase of the platform.
