Neil Whelan, Joint MD Wildfire Internet:
We turned to Cognitor when we were getting interest from investors wanting to buy into our business. We produced a rock solid set of forecasts and Cognitor joined us when meeting the most serious investor, ensuring we did not give away equity unnecessarily. In the end, again with Cognitor's help, we took short-term investment from family without needing to give away any equity at all. A great decision in the end.
