New investment opportunities are reviewed on a continuous basis. In order to be considered for funding, entrepreneurs should present a complete business plan which includes:

  • Background of management team
  • Description of product or service
  • Market opportunity and direction
  • Competitive analysis
  • Current financial statements
  • Financial plan with projected growth through the next five years
  • Amount of funding requested
  • Use-of-funds description

Companies seeking funding are advised to start the process several months before funds are needed. The IRF will evaluate the strength of the business and if, deciding to pursue the opportunity, will perform due diligence and meet with management to reach an investment agreement.
