Solas Communications works with established and first-time fund managers and growing companies to help them raise capital more efficiently. We increase their chances of success through highly professional, compelling and concise fundraising materials that meet the needs and surpass the expectations of institutional investors.
We have a deep understanding of what limited partners (LPs) want to see from a venture capital, private equity or other type of fund and what it takes to build a solid foundation of trust with LPs. We believe that thorough and transparent fundraising documents are critical for winning the interest of LPs and facilitate the investment process.
We analyze a planned fund’s competitive position and work with the GP to develop differentiated positioning, a value proposition and key messages. With these serving as our anchors, we determine what information is relevant and appropriate for each stage of the fundraising process and eliminate what’s not. We proactively address LPs’ likely questions and a fund’s potential weaknesses. We advise clients on how to construct investment performance records the way LPs look at them.
We then bring it all together in a set of integrated fundraising documents: private placement memorandum, investor presentation and stand-alone executive summary. We also have strong knowledge of how the rules and regulations that govern the marketing of unregistered securities shape these documents.
We also advise on due diligence materials and prepare management teams to meet with investors.
