Supporting entrepreneurs to raise strategis capital 

We transfer our investor knowledge and connections. Having supported entrepreneurs in raising over £52,000,000 and getting them ready to scale

  • Why now

    We have been in the entrepreneurial industry for over 11 years. We feel that entrepreneurs need new ways of growing their LP base. Over the last 2 years entrepreneurs have been very vocal about their experiences with fundraising platforms. It is relevant particularly now, when companies have been hit by the current market conditions.

  • Feedback from Entrepreneurs and Investors

    ENTREPRENEURS - Many of the entrepreneurs we have worked with have been telling us how frustrated they were with the results they were getting by working with external IR partners and at the end of it getting a very low RIO. INVESTORS - During the economically challenging times investors are telling us that they are still looking for good investment opportunities to invest in, as their investment mandates did not change much. 

  • Strict selection of companies

    As we have to meet the demands of our investor requiraments, we intend to select project based on interests of our investors, therefore we accept to work with average 15% of the companies. It is important for us to maintain a good relationship with our investors and present to them good quality opportunities with strong Team, Technology, Traction (3T,s).

As many of our investors have built their own companies during the economic downturn. Many of our investors see the downturn in the economy as an opportune time to invest their capital in early stage and late stage companies.

  • HNWI Investor

    “ I have been investing through Muboriz, primarily focusing on diversifying and adding to my personal company investment portfolio with a focus also on listed companies and qualifying companies. Astelios have provided steady stream of quality investment opportunities over the last 6 months which have met my requirements. The companies I have looked at with Astel have had credible and well connected management teams, a strong product range and usually good current revenue but with significant capability to grow following investment. The information provided on the companies has been good, and further diligence questions promptly answered. Also key has been the ability to meet senior management prior to deciding on the investment. A further aspect has been the possibility with some investments to work more closely with the company on an advisory or non-executive basis, which is a particular attraction for me”

  • Family Office Investor

    “Speaking to some of the deals which Muboriz and his team has brought to us, it was clear to see how prepared they were and I was surprised to see how much they were able to understand our-investor perspective. We also noticed that the projects that go through this programme are more prepared in terms of their pitch and doing their research on us. We will continue to look at deals which Astelios and Muboriz bring to the table”

  • VC Fund Manager

    “I have been working with Muboriz and Astelios for some time. My focus has been technology and blockchain deals. The market in both of these spaces can be very saturated, but despite that I was pleasantly surprised by the way how the deals they have are prepared to meet with investors. Another point to bring up is the companies which I have invested in via Muboriz, many of them were much better then average of my portfolio companies in terms of Investors Relations, updating me and their other investors on monthly and quarterly bases where the company it, very refreshing to see that Astelios is teaching this unique content”.

Based on our interviews of 130 entrepreneurs and 280 investors we found interesting data

  • 75% of Entrepreneurs don’t see the investor perspective ...

  • 70 % of entrepreneurs don’t do a good job of IR with current investors , effecting a loss of 60% of their investor follow up commitment

  • 50% of the success in fundraising from sophisticated investors (HNWI, Family Offices and Funds) is by having a quality and fast follow up investor process

  • 76% of sophisticated investor investors do not end up not investing because the company has a very high valuation or the entrepreneur has not built the trust

  • Question to one of our successful entrepreneurs How long will it take to raise angel financing? It’s my rule of thumb that it will always take longer to raise angel financing than you expect, and it will be more difficult than you had hoped. Not only do you have to find the right investors who are interested in your sector, but you have to go through meetings, due diligence, negotiations on terms, and more. Raising capital can be a very time-consuming process.
