If your business is investment ready or approaching a growth phase after a period of sustained organic growth, we will target the best form of investment for you and help negotiate the most beneficial terms possible in order to help you scale and develop your business in the most efficient and value enhancing way possible. More importantly perhaps, we will advise you as to whether or not your business is ready for investment so you do not waste valuable capital resources on futile and costly fund raising strategies.

Cognito Strategies has helped raise in excess of €5m in seed and expansion capital for clients since 2012. If you require early stage or growth funding, we will assist in getting you “investor-ready”.

What does that mean?

In essence, ensuring that your business is sufficiently credible and attractive enough for an investor to risk putting their hard earned cash at your disposal.

The ranges within which we work are:

  • MVP / Seed Capital (Range € 50,000 – € 900,000)
  • Series A, B (Range € 1,000,000 – €5,000,000)
  • EIIS – for businesses trading for < 7 years (Range € 350,000 +)
  • Private Equity

If your business is sufficiently mature and profit generating (minimum circa. €500,000 in ebitda), we can assist in preparing you to access private equity finance as a means with which to grow your business exponentially.

Initial Coin Offerings (ICO)

Cognito Stratgies will help you keep track of new developments in the distributed ledger technology space of Token Economics. Many entrepreneurs are debating if they should raise money through a token offering or not. In order to have a successful ICO and, most importantly, a smooth and successful development of the project, protocol, token or dapp, the needs and incentives of many different stakeholders must be carefully balanced. We can advise you on your value proposition, white paper and website development, crypto economics and token structure, smart contract structure and security, advisory board recruitment, PR and marketing.
