Featured Case study
Parpera is an Australian fintech company seeking to build an ecosystem of products and services that will change the way people do business. The company only took 10 days to hit its maximum funding target of $800,000. The speed of the raise left a lot of investors wanting more, with a high amount of excess demand immediately following the campaign’s successful close. Parpera decided to open up a limited second tranche of $200,000 to be further put towards growth and development. Just a few hours after opening to expressions of interest, this second tranche hit its maximum target and closed successfully.
The Capital Raise ProcessOur approach delivers an 86% success rate
1. Expression of interest (EOI)
Validate the investor demand for your capital raise before doing the heavy lifting. An EOI marketing campaign is fast and simple and has minimal costs to get started.
2. Offer preparation
Work with our highly skilled team to create the offer document for your capital raise. Our marketing team will help you create a strategic and complementary promotional plan to build awareness and gain investors.
3. Private launch
The offer is open to an exclusive group which might include your previous investors, close network and top customers. We also give access to EOIs.
4. Public launch
It’s go time. The offer is open to everyone and as much traffic as possible should be driven to the offer page through marketing. The campaign runs for approximately 6 weeks.
5. Campaign ends
Once you hit the funding target (100% funded), the offer will close successfully and will then go into ‘overfunding’. The offer ends when you hit the maximum funding target or the timer finishes.
6. Receive funds
After the capital raise process closes, we settle the funds and transfer you the amount raised, less our fees. It’s then over to you to welcome your new shareholders!

"We engaged Equitise to manage the Chairman's list and also the retail spread requirements for our ASX listing.
The process of engagement and running the offer was very slick and we were very happy with the outcome.
The Equitise team worked extremely hard on the transaction and I was very impressed with their output. We would happily recommend Equitise to any future prospective client."
"We have worked with Equitise a couple of times now to support the Car Next Door business in its capital raising strategy.
Over both engagements we found the Equitise team to be professional and genuinely passionate in assisting our team yield the results we were looking for.
We hope that one day we may be able to utilise their platform to conduct a full retail offer to the public through equity crowdfunding."
"We interviewed a number of ECF businesses but decided on Equitise because we liked the fit, the breadth of work they’d done and the opportunity to have a more liquid platform down the line. The process for us was really good.
The outcome was we had 292 new investors. Many of whom are members of our platform who are delighted to be part of our journey. Many have asked how they can invest again. But also having those brand advocates out there - giving us greater awareness in the public area - has been really good for us."
