We are looking for early-stage tech startups who are raising or planning to raise from VCs in the coming months.
If you are planning to raise less than USD 1M or are an idea-stage/Pre-MVP-stage startup, please have a look at our Angel Program that is tailored to raise funding from Business Angels and High-Net-Worth-Individuals (HNWIs).
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.
- You have early customer traction or validation (POCs, MOUs, etc.).
It doesn’t matter:
- If you are in stealth or if your product is live.
- If you generate revenue.
- How many people work in your company or if it’s only you.
- Where you are located.
