 INVESTOR'S FUNDING AND FINANCING
An insider's views and tips on where and how  to find funding for
development projects, large and small
How to Find a Committed Lender for your Project

Passion and commitment to your own project is a wonderful thing to have but unfortunately that's not what will find you a lender!

Truth and facts, if presented correctly, will be much more likely to find a lender who will match your commitment.  Don't water down the truth and facts with your passion for the project.  If its a good project when stripped down to the bare bones of fact, then a real lender will see that and you will be in business.
Funding
If you pretty up and sex up your project, then a real lender will spot that immediately and reject it.   And worse, you will get a whole slew of not so real funders and middleman talking to you and wasting your time and your money.

"Spit out the hard facts and also make a compelling (But brief) statement about why the opportunity is worthwhile,"
advised one of our lenders when asked.

In the first instance lenders do not want to wade through hundreds of pages of pretty pictures with no substance.  Two to three pages of solid facts and a brief overview (the Executive Summary) of your project will very quickly get you to first base. Typically, this means accepting that the project is of interest, and the next step is for you to complete a full application to submit to the lender.

Lets go back to the Executive Summary.  The following checklist should be adhered to closely:
1. How much money are you looking for?  Always better to ask for more than you need, no lender wants to get  involved in a project that runs out of money.

2. Tell us what you need the money for in that "brief compelling statement".  Include where, what, how and why.

3. What will the funds deliver for you in terms of pay back? In other words, why should a funder put his money behind this project?

4. What is your exit strategy or intended time-frame?

5. How do you propose to service the debt? (Debt funders want security and interest. Equity funders want larger returns and defined exits.)

6. Very few funders will lend 100% to a project, 99.9% are looking for some risk and equity from the  borrower.  State your equity in the project and even better, what cash you still have to put into your project.  Lenders like to see cash in the bank as opposed to a project that's spent out.

If your project fits a lender criteria he will want to see more.  And he will want to see it immediately, he is not going to wait while you scramble to get everything together.  

So before you even send us your Executive Summary make sure you have everything else ready to go.

Your checklist so that you are ready if the lender asks for a full Application from you:
1. Do you have detailed assumptions?

2. Have you run variations to your projected model?

3. Do you have a full Business Plan prepared?

4. Do you have your patents, plans, appraisals and permits in place?

5. Do you have a Financial Summary available?

6. Are your corporate bank accounts set up?

7. Is the business properly incorporated and registrations paid up?

8. Do you have a valid passport?

9. Ensure that you have sole signatory permissions from your shareholders and partners.  Lenders will only deal with one person.

10 .Is your personal information such as tax returns, financial statements etc up to date?

11. Are your corporate tax returns up to date?

And the secret ingredient? 

Direct advice from a tried and tested source... "Always best for the applicant  to make their own list of the 5 biggest negatives a lender may come up with regarding the project or applicant.  That can help the applicant mitigate the problem or underpin their presentation in advance."
