About

About your business

You’re a small-to-medium enterprise that’s rich with intellectual property – like software and tech solutions for  healthcare, mining, agriculture, financial services or business in general. You know your business has needs that are peculiar to your industry or sector. So, you need help to steer your business in the direction you would like it to go. That’s where IFL Ventures comes in. We understand IP-rich businesses and have founded, operated and sold these businesses ourselves. We understand what is required to realise value from your IP both now and into the future.

Who we are

IFL Ventures is a corporate advisory firm specialising in SME and IP-rich businesses. We work with private, publicly-listed or small divisions of larger enterprises – with market values of between $1m-$20m.

If that reflects your company, we can help you grow your business with advice and strategic planning, hands-on growth support, and mergers and acquisitions advice and negotiations (on both the buying side and selling side of the transaction). We can also source capital investment to fund business expansion. Here’s how we do it…

Strategic growth advice

i

Business appraisal

How is your business performing? What could you do better? Let us review your set-up and give you an objective assessment. Then, once you know where you stand, we can help you plan for growth, succession or sale.

Strategic options

What are your options for growth? Would you be better served by selling? We will tell you what the market is saying and recommend potential paths.

Business growth strategies

Let us answer your business strategy questions and form a plan that will help you expand, increase your market share and deliver a solid return on investment.

Valuations

How to value a business is our business! We can identify the departments or parts of your business that are high-performing and well-structured as well as those that aren’t. And we can highlight ways to improve shareholder value, too.

Mergers and Acquisitions

/

Merge

If you want to merge with a business partner or competitor, or have a complementary or related business in mind, we can do the due diligence, negotiate the terms and settle the deal. We can also identify new prospects you may not have considered.

R

Buy

Want to expand and buy another business? We can help you decide whether the time is right, and find the best business at the best price. We can also recommend ways to structure your new company for a solid and profitable growth.

Sell

If you’ve decided to sell, you’ll need a buyer – one who sees the value in what you’ve built. We can do a health check on your business structure and financials then advise what’s needed for your business to be in-demand. We can draw on our global network of corporate contacts to identify potential buyers and we can manage the sale, too.

Sourcing growth capital

:

Raising capital

When you’re ready for serious growth, need to take advantage of opportunities as they arise, or want to grow your own business by acquiring another complementary one, you will need funding. We know where to source that funding, whether you prefer to receive technology venture capital, raise private equity, go public, or be introduced to angel investors or other venture capitalists.
