Positive financing projects
for Éolo Holdings(LinkedIn)
Much is made about financial engineering, or structuring, but little is done in a positive way.
A phrase that I like is Robert Frost (A bank is an establishment that lends us an umbrella on a sunny day and asking back when it starts raining). Based on this thought, we can define which bank is an institution that will not take risks. Fact. If a bank will not take risks, and we need to have a win-win project format, how to develop projects for that Axiom?
Today we have developed two projects accordingly. One is specific to the financial and the other for clean energy. Both had to be reworked to 'absorb this technology banks' (zero risk factors) in their axioms to be ready for deployment.
The Startup that you do not see that little detail, can get frustrated and give up your project. We tell you, categorically, do not give up. Think like bankers, talk with people of banks, schedule a conversation in the nearest cafe and obtain the 'gold information'. Never give up. Unless the banker, accountant, one or more observers tell him (and prove!) that you will lose time. Then, once called the 'opportunity cost'.
Well, worth another post.
