The partnership between Prime and VentureCrowd aims to provide owners of early-stage or small to medium sized businesses access to the experience and services needed to obtain capital funding and achieve their business aspirations.

We can greatly improve your eligibility and preparedness to raise capital from alternative capital funding sources like equity crowd-funding platform, VentureCrowd.

In addition, we’ll provide an obligation-free assessment on your business accessing the Research and Development (R&D) tax incentive or Export Market Development Grants (EMDG) or becoming an Early Stage Innovation Company (ESIC) entity, making it even more attractive to potential investors.
