Early Stage Company Clients
Beagle Holdings is neither an investment company nor a financial advisory firm. We typically work on retainer to cover expenses and insure our clients have some skin in the effort. But our principal goal is to be compensated via stock options, warrants, or other forms of equity ownership.
Our experience in Asia has dramatically evolved over the past three years. Most of our Asian clients want to invest in American innovation. The transnational capital flows are now primarily from Asia to North America and Transamerica. Today, that most often means Asian investors and companies seeking a minority equity stake in an early stage company. In return, they often want an agreement to cooperatively integrate some staff; develop joint ownership in intellectual property going forward; and upon achieving joint goals, the right to establishment of a subsidiary or distribution network in their country. This form of investment and joint venture can often be very advantageous to an early stage start-up. It can obviate the need for multi-stage and multi-round venture capital investment. Which most often leads to severe dilution and even control and take-over of the founder's enterprise.
