Experts in Venture Incubation
How do we operate?
Companies engage Roaring Pride – as a Trusted Advisor - to help accelerate their growth by introducing a fresh, innovative and entrepreneurial flair into their business culture and ways of working. Our management fee is complemented by a small equity share in the business, ensuring our long-term interests are aligned. We take an active role on the Board and use our decades of consulting expertise to add value across aspects of the business to accelerate strategy implementation.
Early stage companies seeking to position themselves to become investor ready work with Roaring Pride to build the systems, processes and structures to attract institutional investment.
Roaring Pride works with founders and entrepreneurs to design and build strategies and tactical plans which form the basis of a corporate road map. Such activities underpin business plans, investment memorandums and financial models ready to accept institutional investment.
Roaring Pride forms an integral part of the team which engages its network of investors – angel investors, family offices and/or venture capital funds to structure and close investment. Roaring Pride’s continued operational participation injects confidence to investors ensuring smooth execution of strategy which is leading towards its strategic exit.
Roaring Pride’s professional expertise enable ideas on a piece of paper to be transformed into a business. We work within our Accelerated Venture Solution Environment (“AVSE”) to incubate ideas, undertake rapid research, create prototypes, build solutions and expand human capital to launch and grow ideas into sustainable businesses which have a positive impact on society.
We combine years of experience, carefully dissecting a new venture, unpicking issues, identifying risks and understanding how to best combine our network to launch the business within 12-months and scaling it by month 36.
Roaring Pride build the management resources to help run the venture but continues to oversee the performance through its Board positions.
