Pre-Seed and Seed Funding
We specialize in Simple Agreements for Future Equity (SAFE) funding instruments. It is hard enough starting a new venture so we do not burden it with debt as part of our investment. As your team's growth continues, we help you build the finance and human resource processes required of a functional company. On the operations side, if terms like "corporate governance" and "regulatory approval" keep you up at night, hand those activities off to us. We've secured patents and 510(k) clearances many times over and will make sure your administrative framework is built to minimize execution risk.
Developing and scaling innovative technology can be an expensive and time consuming endeavour. By identifying the right industry application, you can achieve step function growth that does not dilute your equity. We can help you demonstrate the value of potential licensees to your institution as well as negotiating and executing any IP transfer agreements and equity grants. Commercial partnerships and pilot projects can create immediate revenue that can be reinvested into your product development activities. You also gain access to world-class corporate R&D and Business Development departments that can establish your technology as an industry standard.
