CYFRD is more than an investment firm. We fund and nurture people who pioneer change. We have put together a team of hands-on investors and advisors that share the entrepreneurial DNA and experience to drive our mission.
There are so many challenges that compete for your attention when you start a company. CYFRD helps you navigate this stage of the journey by lending hand to help secure fast validation, generate traction and custom fit a strategy to scale effectively.
We provide hands-on support in our main areas of expertise.
We have a special focus on teams based in Eastern Europe.
Most founders find themselves caught up raising money rather than developing their product and building the right team. CYFRD supports you throughout the raise, from deciding on a funding strategy and selecting the type of capital, to evaluating how much money to take and who to take it from.
We work alongside founders to delve into the company’s strategy, refine the business plan, identify the right solutions to address capital needs, raise debt, equity and grants and negotiate terms.
Our relationships span from traditional sources like banks and VC or private equity funds to niche family offices and sophisticated private investors.
We guide founders through the sales process, from discussions on whether its the right time to sell and who to target, to the preparation of presentations, negotiations on the terms and arrangement with banks for post-closing investments of funds.
We also advise the leading international funds and companies on the search and acquisition of tech and IT companies in Eastern Europe.
