Typically RYSE seeks to invest with companies at seed stage up to and including Series A, to support them in their next phase of growth. Some of these companies may have traction already in the market and may already be revenue generating but are looking to raise between £250,000 and £2,000,000.
Companies that are successful in receiving investment do not have to become part of RYSE’s ecosystem. RYSE does work closely with external accelerator or incubator programmes and is also able to provide office space and full infrastructure with access to experienced and qualified advisers, mentors and sector focussed events to assist in accelerating the growth of the companies and provide hands-on support to their management teams.
RYSE’s objective is to provide investors with capital appreciation from a diversified portfolio of investments across early stage and nascent companies over time.
The offering addresses an investment or funding gap in the market which is largely overlooked by institutional and professional investors alike due to the time involved in undertaking due diligence on a number of early stage companies and their principals or founders. The opportunity enables investors to benefit from a highly diversified portfolio effect without compromising on due diligence.
RYSE’s aim is to source high calibre companies that have developed or are developing a service, product or solution to a commercial, technological or scientific problem in an innovative way.
