What is the process of raising capital with Teoh Capital?
Here at Teoh Capital, we work to ensure that we can offer an efficient, uncomplicated, and simplified capital process from the very beginning. If we deem an investment opportunity to be of interest, we strive to complete the transaction early on, so we can get to the part that really matters – growing your Brisbane business.
The process will kick off with a preliminary consultation to better understand your business, product or service, the industry you operate in, and competitors. If the opportunity sounds like a good fit for Teoh Capital, we’ll then move to a proposal and can have due diligence and long-form documentation ready to go in less than eight weeks.
While other private equity firms and venture capitalists in Brisbane will often work on a longer, drawn out due diligence process, Teoh Capital believe that raising capital does not need to be complicated and laborious. Rather than a box ticking exercise, we see due diligence as an opportunity to understand your business’ growth potential, get to know you and the leadership team of the business, and determine whether we’ll make a good long-term team.
How does it work once we’ve partnered with Teoh Capital?
Before becoming a member of the Teoh Capital family, you can expect a highly personalised acquaintance protocol where we can come together to determine how we fit into your business and general operations. As a Brisbane private equity firm, we want to help Brisbane-based businesses by meeting them on their terms to ensure we can continue to support what you do best.
Once we’re across the line and have partnered, we generally work to ensure that you can continue to do what has gotten you this far, while also providing guidance where needed. We’re hands on where needed, but will leave the day-to-day operations up to you – the people that know the business best.
More often than not, if we’ve decided to invest in a Brisbane business, it means that we have a strong belief in the current leadership team and want to support growth with continuity.
