Fundraising: how long does it take?

Fundraising is about agreeing to put your business aside for a while. Hence the interest of having partners or an already solid team on which you can rely.

On average, a fundraising takes several months, between 2 and 6 months, depending on your ability to convince Business Angels.

Then, it takes a few more months before the funds actually arrive on your account (with some exceptions) for administrative reasons.

As a reminder, a fundraising is divided into several phases:

Preparation of docs, pitch-deck, BP etc...
Identification and pitch to Business Angels / VC / others
Possible due diligence
Negotiation and signature of the LAW
Negotiation of the shareholders' agreement
Convocation of an Extraordinary General Assembly
Issuance of share subscription forms to Business Angels
Issuance of the depositary's certificate by the bank upon presentation of the subscription forms
Registration of the formality at the registry of the Commercial Court
