Featured Case study
Equitise launched Xinja the same day as the first retail crowdfunding licences were granted meaning it was Australia’s first equity crowdfund. Despite this the company hit its minimum funding target after only 18 hours, raising a total of $2.4 million. It returned a year later for its second raise totalling $2.5 million and then again for a Wholesale offer raising $1.6 million. Its valuation jumped from $40 million in 2018 to $230 million in 2020 and over the course of the three raises it’s gained thousands of investors who are now helping build the bank with Xinja.
The Capital Raise ProcessOur approach delivers an 85% 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!
