Businesses that do not have the financial resources to fund their own growth or development and whose activities are regarded as too risky by a bank or other lenders, require equity to realize their potential. Venture capital comes in many different shapes and sizes. From individuals requiring a few hundred thousand euros to develop a new game, to life sciences companies requiring tens of millions to develop a cure for a disease.
We advise investment funds, family offices and angel investors in connection with venture capital investments (from early-stage and seed funding to Series A through E), but also start- and scale-ups with traction seeking for growth capital. We ensure that your interests are well protected, whether in investment agreements (setting out the terms of the investment itself), shareholders’ agreements (setting out the terms of the cooperation after the investment), (convertible) loan agreements (which are very popular if it is difficult to determine the value of a starting business) and other associated documents.
We also assist you with setting up employee incentive plans, such as Employee Stock Option Plans (ESOP), Share Participation Plans (SPP) and Stock Appreciation Rights (SARS). We advise on investments on a daily basis. We know what both investors and companies that seek investments require. This ensures a smooth, successful closing of your fundraising transaction. We are not limited to any specific sector or focus, but have great affinity with Sustainable Energy, Agri & Food, Mobility, Fintech, Life Sciences and ICT (tech).
