Seeking Great Entrepreneurs
At Farazad Investments, our business is built on supporting great entrepreneurs. We have developed a niche business model that seeks for high quality entrepreneurs and creates long term joint venture partnerships out of these relationships. This maximises the joint skill set of both parties enabling them to deliver optimal value to investors and the newly created JV entity alike.
We have successfully delivered this model already on several different entrepreneurs.
Our model is different. We create a Co-Partnership with the entrepreneur. This new JV that is owned between us then raises capital for deals from the large number of Farazad Investments investors. The new JV is the Co-Partners that promotes deals and the Farazad Investments investors are the General Partners to the opportunity invested on a deal-by-deal basis into each of the deals promoted by the new JV.
This model works well for entrepreneurs with access to good “off-market” deal flows in a market area that has a compelling story, needing a bigger partner with access to capital to help them seize the opportunity to grow a larger business.
