We have a simple three-stage accelerated process. The time it will take from submitting your proposal to receiving an offer could be as little as 5 working days. Don't delay! Submit your proposal whatever stage your seed idea is at. The least you'll get from us is a telephone consultation that is worth hundreds of pounds in monetary terms.
Step A: Submit Your Proposal
With our help, an entrepreneur can achieve far more in 3 months than in 1 year on their own. This is because we have developed a system of dos and don'ts based on our experience. We will analyse your proposal in order to get a clear overview of your seed idea. We will then assign the necessary resources to give your business the best chance of success.
We offer far more than just the initial seed capital.
Note for Investors:
If you're an investor, you will feel safe in the knowledge that your investment will never be used in an un-Islamic business venture from the beginning to the end. We will lead every project ourselves to make sure we get positive results. We will have targets to meet for both the entrepreneurs and ourselves, and present you with quarterly progress reports.
Step B: Proposal Consideration
We will analyse your proposal in full confidence (we will have a Non-Disclosure Agreement during submission) and contact you within 1-2 working days via email or telephone if we need further information from you.
If not, one of our investors/entrepreneurs will consult with you by telephone with regard to your business proposal. It is important that you take notes during this consultation, as you will be provided with valuable information, whether or not you move to the next stage. You will be contacted within 3-5 days of submission to allow us enough time to do the background research and analysis of your business proposal.
After the consultation, we'll need another 1-5 days to factor in everything that has been discussed in the telephone consultation. Then we will contact you to inform you if you have been successful.
Step C: Formal Business Presentation
You will be invited to make a formal presentation in front of one or more of our investors at one of our London offices. Before you make the presentation, we will give you some guidance on how to prepare and what to expect.
At the end of the meeting, the investor/s will make the decision whether or not to invest in you and your idea. If they do decide to invest, then an offer will be made and a copy of the contract will be given to you to take away.
If none of the investors decide to invest, then we will offer you three options (subject to Seed Investments approval):
1. Request another presentation to the same investors redressing all the issues raised, or
2. Ask for another opportunity to present to our other investors, or
3. Become a project leader of one of Seed Investments own ventures a salary or partnership basis.
