Client Comment:

ICON's experience was invaluable in getting us the funding we were looking for! Given the challenges that small companies face in balancing the day-to-day needs of the business with longer-term funding requirements, we were delighted to have an experienced corporate finance adviser in Eddie to help us manage the whole fundraising process. Raising venture capital is by no means an exact science but ICON's understanding of the market and assistance in the deal negotiations helped us to secure a successful funding round with an experienced and supportive investor syndicate
