When a search for inverter or strategic partner, there are different types of investors or partners who can inject capital to carry out the growth project that is being considered. Depending on the type of project, a certain type of investor may be more favourable or one type of investor than another:
The search for an financial investor for the capital increase is a process that can be long and requires a lot of dedication. You have to find the investor that best fits your business idea and strategic plan. It is advisable to have someone who has experience in this type of process and to prepare the best way to prepare the financial investor search strategy.
As a prior step to defining this investor search strategy it is important to have a well-defined plan for the growth strategy. All aspects such as objectives, investment cost, investment time and return on investment, expected profitability, human capital involved, etc. must be considered. Before making the decision to invest in a company, the investor will review all the details of the business or growth plan to be achieved and must therefore be convinced with a good strategy.
It should be borne in mind that what an investor is looking for in a company is to achieve his own objectives in return for making his capital available. These objectives are not always limited to achieving a certain return on the investment made and are specified during the process of discussions with the investor.
Before starting the search, it is necessary to see what type of investor is the most suitable for the objectives set out in the strategy. For example, in the case of a strategy to enter a foreign market, it may be advisable to look for an investor or strategic partner that has knowledge of the market or can even provide operational support for the entry.
Unlike a financial investor, the strategic partner has a longer-term investment vision and always seeks objectives beyond the return on investment. In their contributions, they do not limit themselves to injecting capital, but also contribute know-how, technology, patents, commercial network, infrastructure, etc., which help the company in which they invest to achieve its growth objectives.
The strategic partner shares resources, competences, risks and long-term benefits and therefore has a long-term commitment to achieve specific objectives.
