Our Investment Philosophy
Fundie was born out of the need to fill the gap in early stage financing for social enterprises.
We focus our investment strategy exclusively on those companies that are committed to positive and measurable impact on people and planet. In evaluating potential investments, we employ rigorous valuation metrics to ensure that companies hold the potential to yield a blend of both financial and social return.
We partner with organisations either as an investment partner or as a project partner. We fill the investment gap, called the "missing middle", which ranges between €50,000 - €200,000 and focus on growing a strong pipeline of pre-seed and seed investment deals.
We invest in socially responsible businesses that meet the following requirements:
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
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.
OUR INVESTMENT PROCESS
We source and scout startups that meet our requirements. For this we have a 3 level filtering process to ensure we find the best deals.
Engage with team
We like to meet the team and understand what their vision and motivation are. We want to create a partnership with founders.
Our team of analysts do a thorough analysis focusing on the team, social impact, product/industry and financial diligence.
We create an investment report which we present internally to cross-check and challenge our analysis.
We present to our investment committee (investment industry professionals) or investor partners.
We create a feedback report with our findings and recommendations which we present to the startup.
Once a deal has passed through the filters, we process with the steps to close the investment.
