The Product Development Company Approach
How we manage investment in developing your technology
Before we make an investment we create a new Product Development Company (PDC) that focuses on taking your technology to market.
The PDC will licence or acquire the technology from the original inventor, in exchange for a significant stake.
We then invest in development through the PDC.
We establish and grow a new company focused on developing your promising technology into a profitable product
The Green Staircase plan manages both product and market development with total transparency
The PDC identifies early adopter customers and develops the minimum viable product
Once launched we build towards larger, high value but more demanding markets and customers
We create a new product development company (PDC) and give you a very significant share of the initial equity
In return you transfer your intellectual property and technology to the PDC so that it can create the intended products
Clean Engineering leads multiple stages of investment and is very happy to work alongside other investors you know or want to introduce
We will ensure the best outcome from each consecutive fundraising round, seeking to minimising dilution for you, us and other early investors
Our delivery partners provide flexible expertise and facilities, reducing cost and improving outcomes at every stage of the journey, leaving the PDC free to focus on value growth
Services cover everything from engineering to production; accounting and legal to marketing and recruitment, all aligned to the Green Staircase development plan
We both have a seat on the board, ensuring you are able to influence the strategy of the PDC and you retain design authority on core technology
Day to day management is led by a small dedicated team that the we collectively appoint. Management is supported by Productiv and partners.
We aim to increase the value of your stake progressively, without you having to invest further
From the outset we build and develop the company with a sale in mind, to deliver a great outcome for you and other investors
