New Year, New Investment Opportunities
Finding Investor Ready Deals In an Economic Downturn
The VC and early-stage funding landscape at the end of 2022 was seen by many as the ‘new normal’, reflecting challenging economic conditions.
As the challenges remain, finding quality deals that minimise investment risk is a focus for all investing in 2023.
For founders and their teams seeking investment, standing out from the crowd with a robust business proposal means plenty of hard work with just getting to the pitching stage.
It’s then vital that they are pitching to the right investor audience, a task that is often difficult to achieve, whatever the economic climate.
Investors will continue to invest in the people and the business plans that excite. But being realistic with business plans is also crucial, now more than ever.
Minimising risk and finding the early stage companies that have the growth potential resonating with their investing themes and ethos is a focus for all investors.
Finding these quality deals and the outstanding founders behind them is a focus that will therefore dominate again in 2023, a process that becomes even harder during an economic downturn.
PACP’s experienced partners all have backgrounds successfully starting, running and exiting businesses, and have supported founders in raising funds for companies across many sectors.
We work closely with our founders to get their companies to the investor ready stage. We also work closely with our investors to find the opportunities and investable founders that they are seeking.
In 2023, we continue to host a series of regular online pitch events to offer the opportunity to investors to see and hear directly from founders across a variety of sectors.
We wish you all a happy and successful 2023, and hope you can join us at a pitch event soon!
