Early Stage, Later Stage and Mezzanine funding rounds are reached when significant milestones are achieved that will lead to an investor typically purchasing at an increased share price (over previous funding rounds) for the next placement of shares. These milestones could include a Sales target (e.g. 1st $million), an EBIT target (e.g. $100,000 / $250,000), an overseas sales target (e.g. 1st $million sales in Asia) or your Patent(s) being finally examined and granted.


Early Stage, Later Stage and Mezzanine funding can focus on HNW’s (High Net Worth investors), Venture Capitalists and Private Equity investors depending on the quantum of the funds sought.

Other choices in these stages are to merge with or acquire other businesses or technology together with a funding round.
