Prospedia has created its Investment Readiness Programme and Platform (PIRP2) to provide early-stage companies with the assistance they may need to raise investment.
We first gather essential information to ensure they meet the legal requirements necessary to access the investment platform. We follow through with a comprehensive and bespoke evaluation, from which we generate a report on their readiness for investment.
In parallel, we develop appropriate communications with potential investors, then and only then do we introduce our clients to potential investors.
Independent technical due diligence, supported by our expert network, will give investors additional confidence to invest in advanced automotive technologies relevant to future personal mobility developments. We’ve designed our scorecard based, gateway driven, iterative process to identify any opportunity gaps in a client’s business model and to provide the help that may be required.
Our investment readiness programme maximises the chances of an early-stage company getting the funding it needs. It also minimises the risk for investors because they can now see the quality of the business model on the investment platform, which is much higher than the hundreds of companies approaching them with a good idea but insufficient background information.
KPI is important but plays only a small part of our overall assessment. Our goal is realising your full potential as a high-growth company. We have designed our scorecard based, gateway driven, iterative process to identify any opportunity gaps in your business model and to provide the help that may be required
We aim to support angel investors, technology developers, the automotive industry and ultimately the environment and retail customers
Prospedia’s extensive network embraces relevant government agencies, academia, the automotive sector and angel investment community
Through our investment readiness programme, we help early stage companies prepare for investment
While closely aligned with relevant government departments and agencies, academia, and the automotive sector, Prospedia Capital primarily serves three stakeholder groups:
We aim to help technology innovators maximise their potential and further develop their competitive advantage. Through our “MBA on steroids” investment readiness programme, we help early stage companies prepare for investment, so they can raise funds quickly and efficiently to then focus on developing, testing and validating their technology and growing their business.
We aim to bring about dramatic change in the marketplace by communicating directly and effectively with the investment community regarding investable technology opportunities that we can present to angel investors vis-à-vis our investment platform.
Prospedia serves the investment community by offering up comprehensively vetted technology companies, including start-ups and university spin-outs, giving investors the confidence to invest in advanced automotive technology with significantly mitigated risks.
Through our expert network, Prospedia commissions experienced engineers, scientists, and other specialists to peer review our early-stage client companies as an integral part of our comprehensive technical, financial and legal due diligence process.
Prospedia’s business model in the alternative finance space directly addresses the “drag on innovation” highlighted by HM Treasury in its white paper published Nov 2017. This authoritative report helped to inform the UK government’s industrial strategy, including its automotive sector deal, announced Jan 2018.
Prospedia’s mission is to accelerate the automotive industry’s absorption of advanced technology. We aim to directly address concerns by HM Treasury of the “drag on innovation” in this sector. By drawing in matched funding from the private equity market, we aim to complement government grants awarded to automotive companies, unleashing their innovation potential for the benefit of all: angel investors, technology developers, the automotive industry and ultimately the environment and retail customers.
Specifically, Prospedia aims to bridge the £429 million funding gap required to support more than a thousand start-ups developing road transport technologies. Hence the focus on rigorous scrutiny giving investors the confidence to match Innovate UK and LEP grants.
We help by facilitating co-investment between business angels, HNWs and family offices, as well as hedge and sovereign wealth funds interested in the massive disruption underway in the automotive sector.
Prospedia’s investment committee includes senior associates with years of experience serving the automotive engineering sector
