White Horse Capital has been closing Series A investment rounds for over 10-years. Run by experienced, exited entrepreneurs who have raised, scaled and sold their own businesses, we know what it takes to prepare and close a deal.

We have closed deals in sectors such as Analytics, Big Data, Financial Services, Healthcare, Insurance, Logistics, Marketing, Media, PropTech, RetailTech and more. We have worked on 50+ Series A deals, such as Advizzo, Brytlyt, Colateral, ContentCal, Cudoni, DevOpsGroup, Edozo, Essentia Analytics, Fifty, Fubar Radio, Gophr, Launchpad Recruits, Newsflare, Neotas and Forestreet.

Our Series A investor community consists of 1,000+ organisations including VCs, VCTs, CVCs, Family Offices etc; meaning we approach exactly the right target investors for your proposition, saving you from wasting time. 

Closing a Series A deal inside 6 months is far more complicated and involved than you would have experienced in earlier rounds of investment. You can learn more about that in one of our 2 minute videos. Below are the high level steps that will be needed to close your Series A:

  • Investor proposition – Ask, Valuation, Exit range, Implied ROI – nail it, or fall at the first hurdle
  • Business plan – proof points, engaging growth story & clear narrative 
  • Financial model – comprehensive, adjustable, sensitised 5-year growth forecasts
  • Teaser document – to the point and created through the investor lens
  • Pitch deck/s – designed to appeal to your ideal investors
  • Data Room – detailed, with no skeletons to derail the deal later on
  • Investor research – matched to your investor proposition
  • Investor outreach – Leveraging warm relationships to elicit quick & honest responses
  • Term sheet negotiation & sign off – getting you the best terms 
  • Due diligence support & deal close – Ensuring no problems post termsheet, through to successful completion
