We needed funding to support our next acquisition. With the target identified, Consilium assisted with the fund raise, which was a complex arrangement, not least because it required two financiers to come together to structure a deal worth approximately £1 million. The outcome was successful and the funding enabled us to add Cole Contractors Cardiff to our portfolio.
The Consilium mentoring programme provided us with paramount assistance that aided us in refining and shaping our business plan. The format and content of the mentoring programme were impeccably well-structured and meticulously planned. The mentors at Consilium are astute and have a friendly demeanour that made it easy to work towards our common goal. Moreover, they have helped us lay down the stepping stones that will prove crucial to the success of our business. The mentors have equipped us with a rich understanding of the business's practical aspects due to their robust industry experience. At the culmination of our mentoring programme, with the guidance of our assigned mentors at Consilium, our vision has finally been translated into a reality with the inclusion of many innovative features. For their efforts, we hold a deep sense of gratitude towards them.
We were looking to set up a seafood processing facility in Pembrokeshire and we approached Consilium. Consilium helped with putting together the business plan and an investor deck to attract Investors and finance houses. We also spent time together modelling company revenue and financial projections. Consilium then put together a funding strategy which involved both private and public sector funding. At the beginning of 2019 we signed terms and secured £300,000 for the project. This has placed us in a great position now to follow through the next phase of the project.
Consilium have played an instrumental role in sourcing equity funding to get our animated feature off the ground and I have always found them easy and friendly people to work with.
