Every business has to encounter  deals and negotiations. It is an important aspect of the business industry as it is a way to build connections and opportunities.

Deal origination, also known as investment origination, is the starting point behind every deal. Therefore, this part of the subject is impossible to ignore. A good deal origination strategy can bring in several benefits to your company. However, knowing which ones align with your company values and productivity can be hard.

The Shikana Group is equipped with the best legal team in East Africa. We offer deal origination strategy services to those who want to succeed in negotiating and creating deals. Along with expert individuals, Shikana is ready to help you out with your deals. 

What Is Deal Origination?

Deal origination refers to sourcing investment products by private equity firms, investment banks, and venture capital firms. This is a process where deals are created to pitch to potential buyers.

It is usually done by taking information and knowledge about the deal and negotiating the terms with intermediaries. In this case, bids are then placed and the highest paying participant will receive it.

This is important and holds a lot of value because it can inform you about future investment opportunities. Therefore, entrepreneurs are advised to take this in high priority.

How Can You Improve The Methods?

1.    Networking is key:

Networking allows you to meet new investors and people that can give you the opportunities to maximize your investment portfolio. Networking in person is vastly different than waiting for stakeholders who can connect you with renowned people.

Even though, waiting is an effective tactic on its own, in-person meetings can give positive impressions.

Understanding and encountering different people will increase your social connections and skills. Usually, entrepreneurs can meet these people during social events, industry meetings, conferences, and more.

2.    Build your connections with social media:

Technology is one of the most efficient and effective ways of communicating. As technology is massively popular in this generation, it is advised to use its advantages to your liking.

Use social media as a way to invite and attract investors to your company. This can be a way for you to increase your revenue and customers by establishing a proper and well-maintained social media profile. LinkedIn and other platforms have become the go-to places where you can handle professional interactions and meetings.

Shikana Group can help you look for the right investors who can make a big difference with you. Along with deal origination strategy services, we offer legal and informative help on technology, telecommunication, media, and entertainment platforms to maximize your brand image.

3.    Improve your brand image:

Bigger businesses attract big deals. The greater your reputation and reach is, the more prone you are to invite investors to your company. The number of investors entering your company will increase once they see the access and service you offer to the general population.

Your efforts in attracting the target audience to your company will benefit you more successfully. Investors keep an eye on your data and statistics. They gauge your company’s revenue, profit, loss, and expense values. All of this can signal how successful and productive your company is.

These tips can help you maximize on your investment plans and goals.
