Evaluation Criteria: How Boundary Holding invests?
The initial process involves searching for prospect companies to build a strategic collaboration. We shortlist the firms that share unique vision and technology focus.
Following the contrarian approach, our evaluation and selection criteria involves the following steps:
Start-ups that match our criteria for selected space and geographies are filtered.
Then we evaluate the list of the filtered companies, which is reviewed by our team and manager to narrow down further as per criteria set by leading investment firms.
The team member/ manager gets into a conversation with the founders of shortlisted companies via relevant channels.
After establishing a successful contact, the lead is transferred to the investment head. Then we arrange an introduction call to establish a better association.
Discussing future collaborative prospects
Questions essential to building a strategic collaboration are asked, and matters are discussed. This is a due diligence phase, and the questions precede prior research, to further discuss the nature of the business proposal.
The process goes through a series of product and business strategy evaluations, management interviews, and other such exchanges of information during this time period.
After the conversations is completed and the things head into the right direction for both the parties, the proceedings are carried forward with our legal, financial and technological background including the founders of Boundary Holding.
Post-follow-up calls and continuous evaluation, due diligence is conducted, which is followed by a collaborative consensus on the terms and conditions of the investment with the investee company.
Term Sheets and Funding
We conduct a rigorous process of financial and legal due diligence, which helps further strengthen the collaboration with companies that deem the process to its fruition.
The process further involves Boundary Holding’s physical meeting with the founder. A definitive agreement and complete signing formalities are associated with it.
The entire process takes around four to six weeks, which includes a thorough assessment of the project being considered, weighing the risk-return ratio expected and bringing the long-term vision of both the parties into unison.
