I had the good fortune to attend the launch event of www.quantiply.co last week. The initiative could have been launched anywhere in the UK and it must be a tribute to the success of Edinburgh’s vibrant tech eco-system that they chose to launch in Edinburgh.
I have been helping people to start, grow and invest in technology companies for over thirty years and technology entrepreneurs always seem to face similar challenges, namely:-
- Identifying an appropriate business opportunity;
- Creating and protecting the relevant IP;
- Achieving competitive advantage;
- Producing an investor ready Business Plan and Slide Deck;
- Identifying and getting in front of appropriate investors;
- Making the pitch; and
- Securing finance on appropriate terms.
Quantiply offers a unique process driven solution to all of these issues. It will greatly help investors to focus their efforts, reduce the time required to obtain investment and enhance the value upon which investment may be obtained.
It will also serve as an invaluable tool for investors, offering them access to qualified deal flow and minimising the time required to filter out poor propositions and assist with due diligence.
A pilot is being offered free of charge to the first fifty companies who sign up and are accepted for the programme with only a small contingent fee payable on conclusion of a successful financing.
Being only too familiar with the frustrations and delays suffered by entrepreneurs trying to get new businesses underway, I can think of no good reason not to try the Quantiply process – it is as they say, a “no brainer”.
