Where early-stage startups become investment-ready
Who we are
/ˈfʊndiː/ - an expert, learned and successful at repairing things
Fundie Ventures is an impact venture consultancy + connector + educator. We groom early-stage startups solving today’s global challenges and introduce them to venture capital and business angel investors.
Our vision is to change thoughts and behaviours around the role of business, educate about impact investing and social impact, and, ultimately, tangibly improve lives.
Our main objectives are:
Here to help guide impact startups through the fundraising process
We focus exclusively on companies that are committed to a positive and measurable impact on people and the planet –impact that is inextricably linked to the DNA of their business model. These companies generate revenue by solving a social or environmental challenge.
Business is a powerful driving force for change. With this in mind, we operate with the belief that all investments should be impact investments – generating measurable social, environmental and financial returns, and putting equal importance on all three of these bottom lines.
We started Fundie to respond to the need to fill the investment gap known as the ‘missing-middle’: €100k - €1m, where the failure rate in startups is at its highest.
Some call it impact investing, others a triple-bottom-line; we call it common sense.
We help startups prepare for investment in the investment range known as the 'missing middle'. The investment size that startups we work with typically range between €50,000 – €500,000. Once a startup has gone through our rigorous due diligence process, we make introductions relevant investors.
We work with social businesses that meet the following requirements:
What we look for in startups
We look for teams who share the same vision and drive. Each member needs to understand their specific role and be willing to do the unromantic work in a startup.
Solid business models
We invest in business models that are scalable and tested. It is important that at the core of the business model lies the solution for a real problem people are facing.
We only invest in companies that have measurable social or environmental impact. We exist because we believe that social impact is mutually inclusive to the business model.
