With a minimum investment of £200k, a Tier 1 visa investor maybe an option you never considered.
Before exploring this route, there are some considerations to make:
If you are able to answer yes to the above 3 questions, then a Tier 1 investor maybe an option for you.
The simple answer is no.
Before any Tier 1 visa agent would take you on. they would assess your business. If they feel you would appeal to their client base, they will say so.
If an agent was happy to represent you, they could have a quick match, or it could take several months. Even then the initial match may not be suitable for your business.
The best way to think of a Tier 1 visa investor is as an extra resource in your funding journey. As the valuation can often be softer than a VC, it might be a great interim cash injection that could come out of the blue. Plus, as they bring more to the table than just cash, it may be a route to a new market you never expected, or can add an international strength to you board.
