New fintech platform aims to open up business deal flow to investors and corporate advisers

A new online platform allowing advisers and investors to evaluate business opportunities, connect discreetly with business owners and source mandates they would otherwise struggle to reach, has launched.

Pomanda PRO links investors and professional advisers with business owners who are looking for investment, providing the tools to produce accurate company valuations in a confidential environment.
Richard Bland, CEO, Pomanda, says: “The concept for Pomanda PRO evolved from the genuine need amongst investors and professional advisers to find a more progressive, transparent path to serious business owners who are at the right stage in their company’s evolution. Reaching businesses who are thinking about selling all or part of their interests can be tricky even for the most well-connected investor or adviser. There are millions of small businesses in the UK, but only a fraction of those will ever reach the stage where they seek outside investment so advisers can end up wasting resources chasing the wrong leads.
“The Pomanda PRO package allows users to connect with our Pomanda CEO users. Through our unique CEO service, we build early relationships with Private Companies, giving them the tools and the knowledge to engage with Finance when they are ready. Giving PRO users the opportunity to connect with mature, motivated, realistic businesses across the UK at the start of their Corporate Finance journey.
“Pomanda has built the tools that take the hard work out of sourcing, evaluating and transacting business prospects cost effectively and discreetly – business or adviser/investor details will never be revealed until they are comfortable doing so.”
The Pomanda PRO package delivers detailed financial valuations. Based on established Corporate Finance techniques combined with academic theory from valuation expert Professor Aswath Damodaran, the calculator automatically pulls in data from Companies House as a starting point and allows manual input to model different scenarios.
Users can access Pomanda’s online ‘Deal Room,’ to view live M&A activity in their area, and connect with companies looking to transact or use the Finance Room where they can connect with businesses looking to raise debt.
