Client Comment:

Selling a business is a far from straightforward journey. We were delighted with ICON, they introduced us to a variety of interested buyers and negotiated an attractive deal for shareholders but also provided solid advice to help us navigate around the banana skins that were thrown in our direction
John Gilleran, CEO, Focus Group Europe

I have experienced several investment rounds in my career, both self-managed and using advisors. I highly recommend other entrepreneurs to consider using advisors such as ICON. Fund raising is an increasingly complex process and not something that an entrepreneur should tackle alone. We choose ICON after an extensive selection process, they were flexible in the deal we struck and were sensible in their fee structure. Fundraising is never simple, having a guide though the process is extremely helpful. ICON supported us throughout the journey. It is testament to their abilities (and to the quality of the business, that the short list of potential investors resulted in over half offering terms. This ultimately led to a successful conclusion with two of the best VC’s in our space investing. I would not hesitate to use their services in any future round and equally would not hesitate to recommend them to other entrepreneurs looking to accelerate their business.
