startup& growth

Unique Mentors will accelerate your business growth. Selected businesses are prepared for investment and presented to investors to raise capital. We advise and assist the accelerated growth of the business to maximise stability, milestone achievement and valuation.

During engagement, the mentors and associated networks of Unique Mentors are utilised to gain valuable new business connections.

We utilise our performance equity model – a structure that rewards equity for achievement of significant milestones. This allows for a minimal cash cost of engagement and aligns interests toward maximum business growth and value at exit (e.g. IPO, trade sale or management buyout).

A long-term engagement period is expected with a structured exit to be planned and fine-tuned throughout the process. This service is designed for businesses with revenue below $2M.
