Program Requirements

When you are fundraising and scaling your company, we know that time is precious. That's why you will have a minimal commitment during the program. All events and content are optional so you can cherry-pick what you really need at the moment.

Requirements:

  • Fundraising is a high priority for your team.
  • You are either planning to start fundraising in the coming months or are currently raising an Angel round.

Our program is best suited for ambitious entrepreneurs who understand time management is essential while fundraising. Benefit immediately from our perks and benefits, join a community of like-minded entrepreneurs, and network with mentors and investors, all on your own schedule. Our low-commitment program structure is personalized to your company and its needs. The frequency of our meetings depends on how much you need our support. We are here to make fundraising easier, not to add to your to-do list.

Selection Criteria

We are looking for tech startups who are raising or planning to raise an Angel or Pre-Seed round in the coming months. If you are planning to raise or currently raising more than USD 1M or from VCs, have a look at our VC Program.

Our sweet spot is for software companies that focus on AI, fintech, SaaS, blockchain, or who solve complicated problems (deep-tech). Most of our portfolio companies come from the US, Canada, the UK, Germany, Singapore, and Australia, but we occasionally work with companies outside of these key places.

What matters is:
  • You are building a product or service that has software at its core.
  • Your team members have tech industry experience.

It doesn’t matter:
  • If your product is live or if you are in the ideation phase.
  • If you generate revenue.
  • How many people work in your company or if it’s only you.
  • Your location.
