Frequently Asked Questions

   

We are a trusted platform for origination and execution of multiple business solutions for corporates in an end-to-end manner. We leverage technology and expertise to connect corporates (solution seekers) to curated individuals or firms who can deliver one or more business solutions (solution providers). This way, we help corporates on both their capital and non-capital requirements, such as fund raise, business growth, mergers, Joint Ventures and acquisitions, legal & compliance, marketing and branding, training, and much more, while enabling solution providers to serve more customers in their area of competence. We are an execution-oriented supermarket – we connect corporates with the most appropriate and trusted solution providers and save them from the pain of physical search, price bargains, lack of transparency and poor quality of solutions. Here’s how we work in a nutshell:

  • The platform is accessible to all with a simple registration and onboarding process.

  • The requirements of corporates can be posted to the system from anywhere, anytime, post which a detailed telephonic discussion is carried out by our team to understand your requirements better and then match it with the right solution provider.

  • All interactions with our experts are documented in the chat box linked to each transaction.

  • The platform owns the responsibility of satisfactory delivery of solution to corporates.

For corporates and their trusted advisors, accessing multiple solution providers is challenging, time-consuming & uneconomical. Further, getting the right solution provider with competence, credibility & fair pricing of solution is a critical issue. The key value proposition of SME Value Advisors is that the platform tackles all these problems in a unified manner by bringing trust, partnership and certainty to the solution delivery. Once you submit your requirement online on the platform, it becomes our job to find you the solution. We save your time and energy in finding relevant solution providers in a curated manner. Further, you don’t need to run around to find and negotiate with different solution providers for your multiple needs. Curation of each originated transaction is the key feature of the platform. Each transaction is curated extensively and matched with our relevant and curated solution providers to ensure seamless delivery. Similarly, for solution providers, we bring more business through highly curated transactions, ensure timely payment and help in augmenting their customer reach. We measure our value creation on two parameters – positive impact on corporates and impact on solution providers.

All the people registered on the platform are known as ‘Members’. Members register on the platform as solution seekers or solution providers. Solution seekers raise their requirements on their own or through their trusted advisors/consultants. Solution providers, while primarily providing solutions to customers on the platform, also raise requirements of their customers on the platform.

Various solution providers like Chartered Accountants (CAs), Company Secretaries (CSs), consultants/advisors, Bankers, Lawyers have a local presence and serve their customers with a few specific solutions. Firstly, we help solution providers get more clients in their area of competence. Secondly, we become their extended arm and get a larger basket of solutions for many more requirements of their customers, right at their doorstep. Thirdly, we also aspire to bring their execution competence to large corporates & government organizations. In the process, we add value to them through:

  • Revenue-sharing on each transaction in a transparent manner.

Our team will reach you out within 48 hours of initiation of transaction to understand the requirement better. You can also chat with us through chatbox alongside the transaction. You can initiate as many transactions as you want. Once a transaction is completed, it will move to ‘Completed and Closed.’ If the transaction could not be completed for some reason, you will be notified early on and it will be moved to ‘Not Possible and closed’ bucket.





Therefore, to summarize, each of your transactions are categorized into ‘Open’ - i.e. ongoing transactions, ‘Completed and Closed’ - i.e. transactions which have been completed successfully, and ‘Not possible and Closed’ - i.e. transactions which could not be completed and have been closed.

We are primarily a platform connecting both ends in a curated manner – i.e. solution seekers and solution providers. However, we get involved with the solution providers at each level of execution, since we take execution responsibility for any transaction initiated by customers or their trusted advisors on the platform. In addition, the private equity raising solution is warehoused internally, i.e. we have an internal team to drive private equity raising assignments.

As we are responsible towards our customers for delivery of solutions, we believe in choosing our solution providers after proper due diligence, competence check and their demonstrated track record of delivery. There is an extensive process in place before assigning any solution provider to a customer requirement.

Our platform and our team is responsible for smooth execution and delivery of each transaction.

Most of the times, we sign contracts with customers directly. Customers pay us and we pay our members, who initiated the transaction / introduced the customer, as well as the solution providers, who executed the transaction. In some cases, we sign contracts with the member who introduces the customer / initiates the transaction. In this case, we try to keyep the customer informed about the transaction’s progress and contractual details as much as possible.

As our focus is to deliver high quality solutions in a timely manner, we can’t claim to be the cheapest. However, we believe, we would be competitive in terms of pricing given that we are aggregators and our solution providers offer us special pricing based on our business volume and relationships with them. In addition, if you look at the value of your time and energy that we save, we would surely not be expensive - rather, we are the most reasonable option that offers optimum value-for-money.

As every transaction is unique, pricing for each solution to customers is different. We discuss pricing with the customers through members who introduce the customer / initiate the transaction in a very transparent manner. Right at the stage of transaction initiation, we discuss with you what portion of fees we would be able to share with you as origination fees for introducing the customer / initiating the transaction. Payment to you is done on completion of the transaction and after receipt of money from the customer.

When we show you a potential transaction for execution in your area of competence, you quote your execution fees to us. Therefore, you decide your execution fees. We ensure timely payment to all our solution providers irrespective of whether payment is received from the customer or not. Credit risk of the customer belongs to the platform. Usually, you will receive payment within 15 days of the completion of a transaction that you have taken up. In some cases, if the contract so specifies, there might be advance and milestone- linked payments during the transaction.
