Funds raising for your development and innovations

You have a development project in which you strongly believe. Yet, you lack the time and expertise to raise the financing that it deserves. 

Winch helps you to complement your own funds with external financing from private and public sources. We create significant financial leverage by bringing together useful private and public funds. For example, we assist with :

  • Structuring your project according to the key criteria required by funders
  • Demonstrating the relevance and the positive impact of the project 
  • Developing and optimising your financial strategy
  • Negotiating with financiers
  • Following up on the reporting required post-financing, in accordance with the codes required by your investors

We support you at all levels of financing, from €100k to over €50M. Let's examine the form this support takes.

We assist you in :  

  • Consolidating your governance chain including Board of Directors, shareholders and management team 
  • Identifying strengths and unearth opportunities for improvement 
  • Assessing your governance practices as a listed, non-listed, small, big or family company 
  • Assessing your sustainability practices at Board- and C-levels and providing you with tools to adopt more of them
  • Establishing the internal governance systems needed to implement your strategy

We proceed in accordance with all recommendations from governance codes. And beyond.

In governance, one method never fits all. Relevance is key. Hence, we favour meeting people as well as human and customised approaches.
