• Early Stage Corporate Finance and M&A Advisory

    For Start Ups, Scale Ups, University Spin Offs and SMEs

Our Mission

External financing is vital for the development of any high growth business; early stage start ups struggle to afford in-house finance professionals that can prepare them for fundraising or an exit. We aim to make financial expertise accessible and affordable for your companies.

Our Method / Value Added


Financial Strategy & Planning

Magnolia Advisory offers pre seed, seed and Series A start ups a full range of internal support in preparation for fundraising. This includes budgets, forecasts, investor decks, SEIS/EIS filing and data room preparation.



Our assistance guarantees succesful rounds of external debt and equity financing from a wide range of sources (grants, angels, angel syndicates, VCs, accelerators, M&A transactions).

Our extensive network of early stage investors is at our clients' disposal.



We help founders and VCs exit via mergers and acquisitions. We are industry agnostic. Our clients range from early stage start ups to spin offs from university IP portfolios (Oxford University, Southampton University, Chester University).
