Capital Raising Documents
The finance industry is based on paper. Documentation is essential to effectively communicate with investors while remaining compliant. Alphastation prepares documents ideal for raising capital in Australian private markets or for listing on a stock exchange.
Your Information Memorandum needs to appeal to sophisticated and professional investors. To do this it needs to be punchy, concise and accurate, but also resonate with the interests of the reader. A well thought out, clear information memorandum highlighting your company’s execution plan is a powerful tool to secure investors and strategic partners.
Make a lasting impression on your potential investors with a competitive slide deck. A focused deck can get your audience to rapidly understand complex ideas, impart understanding and facilitate decision making.
Alphastation can assist in securing government funding through programs such as Commercialisation Australia, Clean Technology Innovation Program and AusTrade. Grant applications are completed positioning your company with the strongest opportunity for success.
Raising capital and securing funding is only the beginning. Shareholders are your built-in brand advocates and need to be managed through their investment life. Utilise annual reports, which other companies see as a compliance burden, as a way to generate new interest and investment.
