HOW CAN YOU AS AN INVESTOR PROTECT YOURSELF AGAINST DEFAULT RISKS? WHAT MEASURES CAN YOU TAKE TO CREATE THE BEST POSSIBLE PROSPECTS FOR YOUR INVESTMENT PROPERTIES? HOW CAN YOU ESTABLISH EFFECTIVE MONITORING AND STRUCTURES?
A promising business idea is a solid start but no guarantee of success. The vast majority - up to 90 percent depending on the database - of newly founded companies fail in the medium term. The main reasons include a lack of product demand, inadequate liquidity management, inefficient corporate structures or insufficient sales and marketing strategies. Many of these factors are often not directly visible and only become apparent over a longer period of time and present an inherent risk for investors and investment companies.
For this reason, KÖNIGSWEG offers dedicated implementation management for investors and investment companies and supports you in securing your investment and optimizing potential returns. Our offer is structured into two stages and covers the entire investment process: Pre-investment and post-investment phases.
In the pre-investment stage, KÖNIGSWEG uses its own screening and analysis methodology, which has already proven itself in the past as a valid and extremely reliable assessment tool. The analysis is conducted on the basis of well-founded and objectively determined evaluation criteria, which forecast the chances of success, default risks and growth expectations of the investment objects on the basis of selected economic, market-specific as well as product/technology-specific parameters.
After an investment has been made, many investors tend to turn their critical eye from the company and to trust in the business idea of the sponsored company. Thereby, the time span after the investment is one of the most critical in the founding cycle: According to a study by CB Insights, most start-ups fail approximately 20 months after the last round of financing. The average value of the funds invested was 1.1 million €. In this phase, KÖNIGSWEG supports the start-ups in setting up process and project management structures, coordinating budgets and investments, administering licenses and reporting processes, acquiring investors or complying with operational milestones. Our team of consultants brings together many years of corporate and start-up experience with which we support the founders as sparring partners and project managers. As a result, founders and investors profit equally not only from the increase in company value and the greater attractiveness for further investors - they can also focus their energy on the actual core business: the product.
