Growth Financing

The growth of successful companies, scale-ups, require further financing that can be taken from venture capital or private equity funds as well.

We manage the fundraising process by helping to select the right investor and the right strategy, advise you on what the key factors are to make a successful capital raising as well as provide a realistic timetable of the entire transaction.

We support our Clients by managing the complete process, sharing experience, utilising connections, and providing real solutions in:

  • fundraising from local and foreign venture capital or private equity funds that is needed for the growth and international expansion of our Clients
  • growth strategy, business and financial planning, company valuation
  • preparing presentation (investor deck) and teaser to the investors, exit strategy, managing each stages of the fundraising process
  • negotiating term sheet and SPA/SHA, supporting due diligence and the transaction closing process
  • 2nd to 4th round capital raising (series B-C-D) incl. syndicate transactions.

Mergers & Acquisitions

Entering new markets or new industries and accessing new technologies can happen through transactions. At some point, the founders, or CEOs think they should retire, but succession is rarely simple and smooth. Selling a business requires preparation, patience and a well-defined exit strategy. Selling a business to the right buyer, on the right terms and price takes time. Which company would fit you better? How are you going to determine the value of the business? What deal structure should you choose? At Absolvo we are ready to answer all these questions for you, so you can focus on the core business. Our M&A services include:

  • sell-side and buy-side M&A advisory,
  • creating exit strategy, valuation, strategy to increase enterprise value,
  • business and financial planning, valuation, supporting due diligence,
  • local and international strategic and financial investor relationships,
  • negotiating SPA/SHA, supporting successful transaction closing.

International growth: strategy & execution

On the international markets, without a bespoke go-to-market strategy, you will not be successful, but strategy is worth nothing without execution.

With a strong focus on the CEE region and Europe, Absolvo’s sales and business development teams help the growth of both startups and scaleups with the following services:

MEETUP - If you want to build a successful startup / scaleup, raise capital to support your ambitious growth, you need to think globally, enter international markets and face a bunch of tough challenges leaving CEE. We will proudly host Enis Hulli from the most active global early stage VC firm 500 Startups and take his personal advice based on his deep experience in supporting CEE/SEE startups entering the global playground. When is the right time? What are the main risks and challenges on scaling beyond CEE, incl. founder mindset, sales, marketing, hiring, organization, culture, etc.?

The realistic timeframe of scaling vs. VC investment horizon

Absolvo

MEETUP - After fundraising, the growth expectations from VCs put a huge pressure on founders. They have to deliver profit, prepare for exit, close the fund; but what is the realistic timeframe of scaling, how does it fit into VC lifecycle, how do they handle the conflicts of time horizons?

The role of outbound approach in scaling - can you make it without?

MEETUP - Cold contacting, outbound efforts – a lot of founders, sales managers literally hate them, because it’s seen slow, providing low conversion – or don’t work at all, just burn money, time and motivation. What is the “truth-rate” of these statements? Is there a choice at all: can you scale and deliver an impressive growth to (also) your VC investor w/o an outbound approach, considering that your CEE local market is probably too small?

Beyond early stage: Series B/C rounds, debt financing to support international scaling
