Projects which qualify for funding through our network of investors
As a rule, we don’t work with startup companies or new concepts. If the concept is new and the company supporting the concept has a proven track record, this will be taken into consideration. We don’t deal with projects under R5m in funding requirement. Average owner contribution is 35% of project value. All documentation needs to be in a format which can be presented to investors – minimum requirement is a bankable business plan.
