IS THIS THE RIGHT PLACE FOR YOU?
At Dhi Bridge, we provide a firm bridge between knowledge and industry. We support the startups through shared resources, raw material and mentorship. This provides the startups the freedom to focus on converting their IP to products for industry while at the same time giving an investor a chance reduce / dilute their risk, increasing their probability of a successful investment.
In developing products, we have realised over the years that the way startups run today, the human resources costs account for an average of about 70%, infrastructure and others account for the rest. The actual cost of raw material to convert an IP into a product seldom exceeds $20,000 for proof of concept on average.
OUR INVESTMENT IDEOLOGY
Startups in pre-seed phase do not require large sums of investments. Investors need to lower / diversify their risks to ensure successful investments. If you analyse the spending patterns of most startups, you will see that eventually not even 1% of the money invested is utilised for raw materials to actually transition an IP to a product. The reason for this is the high capital costs of equipment, human resources, space, etc. IP-to-product transition can take place by an intellectual just putting their knowledge to work with the right equipment and resources. We intend to satisfy this gap and make it a win- win situation for all concerned parties.
WHAT IS IT WE LOOK FOR IN YOU?
An investor must only invest in an idea that they truly believe in; we as an organisation will only offer investments we have vetted and believe in ourselves.
If you have faith in an idea proposed to you and can give the investees a fair chance to prove themselves without hampering or interfering with the fundamentals idea and the investee company, then you should work with us.
WHAT DO WE OFFER YOU?
If an investor is interested in a particular startup, we will give the investor a detailed techno-commercial report for them to make an educated investment.
Through the course of the development of the idea, we will consistently monitor and update the investor on the progress on their investment and the investor can also have scheduled meetings with the companies to personally monitor the progress.
Through our mentors we will strive to ensure that the company they have invested in is guided in the right direction and does not drift away from their defined objectives.
We also work with industries to aid in establishing a market for the developed product and with larger investors / V.C.s who may be interested in funding these startups in the seed phase and onwards.
Do contact us if you are looking to invest with companies which have successfully converted their ideas to POC.
