In the investment space, erroneous or incomplete data provided by businesses seeking financing has been a big concern for Venture Capitalists, Accredited Investors, and Private Equity firms in Nigeria. Secondly, finding the right investor has also proven to be difficult in cases where these businesses have accurate data on their business performance.
NASD Enterprise Portal ["NASDEP"] was launched to address these issues. NASDEP creates a transparent way Investors can get matched to enterprises looking to scale. NASDEP collates accurate information on these enterprises, presenting such information to pre-screened investors who will provide crucial capital and guidance to these enterprises.
If you would like to raise capital through the NASDEP portal, reach out to the NASD Team for guidance. Furthermore, if you are an investor looking for investment opportunities in various industries in Nigeria, reach out to the NASD Team for more information.
In the process of raising capital, both parties transact through the Due Diligence Analyst ["DDA"].
The DDA could be legal practitioner, accountant, financial advisor brought by NASD or both parties, However the DDA must be registered to broker deals on NASDEP. Click here for more information on how to register.
