WHAT WE DO
If you have nothing more than an idea, then look no further we’re one of the few firms who invest at concept stage. Even huge corporations began life as nothing more than an idea, we can turn that idea into a business.
Our angel investors are sent directly from heaven. Personal, committed, and involved, our angels, including our founder Raj Dhonota, offer the guidance and mentoring crucial for a business at concept stage.
The most important aspect of your business is the team. Most startups fail because the relationships aren’t right. We’ll help you find the right people for your startup, including skilled and experienced cofounders to keep your business on track.
Our diverse and knowledgeable network of mentors provide advice and support to work through any early setbacks and strategise for the future.
Our expertise in turning softtech concepts into platforms and businesses is virtually unrivalled. If you want to start a business that will rely on a website or an app – then look no further than our experience, our contacts and, ultimately, our investment.
GROWTH AND INVESTMENT
We aim to be the first investment your business will receive, but not the last. We’ll take you from concept to traction, and then use our network to find your next investor, to further fuel the growth of your business.
Raj is our founder, and is now a prolific pre-seed angel investor, following a number of successful entrepreneurial business ventures which have provided the capital for this.
Having found a number of mentors during the course of his own business career, beginning at a young age with his uncle, Raj is now committed to giving something back by fostering the entrepreneurial spirit in others.
This means he now focuses on investing in concept stage startups, providing the investment, mentoring and guidance they need to succeed. It also means Raj participates in charitable initiatives such as ‘Apps for Good’, as well as sharing his business acumen and wisdom in regular online columns and blogs.
