About

Venture Capital Business Advisory was established with the primary objective of helping matured Singapore Small & Medium Enterprises (SMEs) overcome their challenges for exponential growth. Our secondary objective is to serve institution investors, so as to breach the gap between good businesses seeking funds or expertise to further their growth, and for funds seeking good companies to invest. We are incorporated in Singapore on 8 August 2012.

We grow only because you grow! Our up-front fees are deliberately made affordable for SMEs to seek professional help. And because we standby what we preach & guaranteed it, we take our balance fees on projects when you see returns in performance or succeed.

In addition, most of our projects for Singapore SMEs are eligible for Singapore government subsidies up to 70% like CDGs, MRAs, GCPs,  Work-Pro or soon to be implemented, EDGs giving you even more reasons to work with us.

Pre-Preparation for IPO

Have you wondered where & how to raise funds effectively? Or scratching your head about your company’s valuation or questioned what “investors” are offering you?

We help SMEs answer these questions and level-up before companies approach any investors or raise funds, or proceed with any informal & formal M&A. Maximize your company value by first talking to us.

We offer the following :

Capital Market Advisory & Financial Management Advisory (Eligible for CDG subsidies)

Help raise funds /capital – whether for business expansion, strategic or short term needs, with alternative options other than the banks. We can also help you improve your Top & Bottom line to increase your valuation.

Build a bankable Biz model

We can build this based on your current business. We guide and show you what sort of business models investors like to invest on, and what are the qualifying criteria and how to meet these.  This is our Principal Consultant’s core specialty & eligible for Capability Development Grant (CDG) under Business Model Transformation (previously, Business Strategy Innovation) with up to 70% fee funded by SPRING.

Interim CMO/CFO/COO/CEO Services

Most companies can’t expand due to lack of quality expertise, or fear of incurring high overheads for hiring wrongly quality candidates, wasting limited funds, resources and time.

One of the key criteria knowledgeable investors look for is the quality of your team. We can help mentor or even fill this void on an interim basis to guide and walk your business through the fund raising, M&A, in part or if desired, the whole IPO journey. We are far more flexible on such collaborative efforts or projects unlike bigger & structured management consultancy firms.

Do give us a call & chat over coffee as your 1st step before any formal IPO preparation. Working with us to understand “IPO”, crafting a good “investor pitch”, how to increase your valuation etc. before you try to raise funds or approach any investors will make your journey less painful, faster & definitely enhance your bargaining power with institutional investors or financial institution.

For subsequent coffee sessions, ask us about how a 20+yr old Singapore SME struggling in an industry facing downturns, engaged our Principal Consultant under SPRING grants to help tidied up the company in end 2015, and ready itself to be public-listed in Q3, 2017 all within 18 months!
