We offer a real opportunity venture capitalists are dreaming of: An innovative company with a proven technology, strong market demand, in discussions with renowned customers in a large-scale industry, growing sales pipeline, and strongly scalable license model - but due to growth and running fixed costs immediate need for capital. The company received various evaluations from 15 m EUR up to 45 m EUR i.a. against the background of a "partnering contract" with a famous Dubai project office which immediately opens the door to further > 70 large-scale companies in the Middle East and North Africa (MENA) - but revenues still require several months. The company has worked closely with the Dubai office on sales targets and forecasts revenues of 12 m EUR for the next 3 years. Besides this also other leading companies across multiple industries (e.g., SAP, Equinix, EY, VW) are more than interested and the company conducted various pilot projects with the prospect of large follow-up orders. Shortly before this near tangible success, the company unfortunately ran out of working capital. Against this background company is now prepared to offer a considerable share of 75,1 % to an investor who covers pending liabilities of about 2.5 m EUR and will invest - according to its assessment and its own possibilities - further amounts in pending orders and tangible growth prospects. Large target markets are identified such as ICT and Customer Service Desks, Telecom operators, Aviation, Automotive, Insurance. Company already invested 3 m EUR in R & D and received EU funding. In 2022 company had revenues of 1.4 m EUR and the original plan for 2023 was 2.8 m EUR (excluding MENA) - which actually will not be reached without an investor. Well elaborated Business Plan & Financial Plan are available. A competent and experienced core team of 8 employees will continue to work with an appropriate investor for a promising future of the company. A great opportunity for a fast-deciding investor.
