Register and find private financing for the digital transformation of your industrial company. The financing necessary to accelerate the development of industrial enterprises does not have to come only on the basis of equity capital, bank loans or public support schemes. One possible option is to raise money through private equity investments. The most important prerequisite for involving private capital is the existence of your own product or the ambition to develop your own product. We offer a practical and market-based consulting service on how to bring additional capital into the company and thereby expand its operations many times over. We advise industrial companies on how to supplement their business model, develop a product/service, evaluate and, as necessary, establish direct contacts with private capital providers both in Estonia and abroad. Among other things, we advise on how to mitigate the risks associated with raising private capital and support the capital raising process with the help of legal and financial professionals.
