MISSION & VALUES

ABOUT US

We gained a long experience on the investor-side and are all too familiar with the challenges of the startup-entrepreneur. Our mission is to connect both worlds. Due to our accurate selection process and the balancing of the interests of the parties involved we obtained a 90% success rate over the last 3 years in our transactions.

THE TRUTH IS

Fundraising will never be quick and easy

But we can put you in a far stronger position to get there.
Startup entrepreneurs almost universally agree that raising money for their startup is one of the biggest challenges and problems they face. It is indeed often stressful, frustrating, time-consuming and it distracts founders from keeping the focus on product development or sales. Fundraising for startups/scaleups is an extremely relationship-driven process based on trust. Founders often try a spray and pray approach but not only is this ineffective, but it also reduces any potential goodwill. And it’s unlikely to the big names in the newspaper that will fund your business. We can’t promise you the process is ever going to be quick and easy, but our expertise and connections will put you in a far stronger position to optimize and maximize the whole process towards a good closing.
100% FOCUS​​
100% TRUSTED REFERRALS​
NO EXCLUSIVITY
We believe that exclusive agreements are not necessary and not to the benefit of a startup
NO RETAINER

We believe that paying a set fee or a monthly fee is usually unnecessary.

Testimonials

We worked with Finwise for our 15m£ Series A we closed in April 22 and have been pleased with the quality of investors they introduced to us, ranging from angels, angel investors and family offices, complementing our VCs

Daniel Lipinski, founder and CEO of OutFund

We worked with Finwise for the Seed Round we closed in 2020 and were very pleased with the quality of the investors they brought us and their support during the negotiations

Dimitri O – Co-Founder Loop Earplugs

We worked with Finwise for our 2m$ Pre-series A and were impressed with the quality of the potential investors (angels, family offices, VCs…) they brought us. They made a lot of effort in really understanding our business model and we also gained many valuable business relations

Viacheslav (Slava) Oganezov, Co-Founder and CEO of Finverity

As far as your selection of projects is concerned, I think they each time have that ‘special touch’. Your feeling for this is extremely strong in that regard! (original in Dutch: Wat jouw selectie van projecten betreft, vind ik dat ze keer op keer toch wel een bijzondere ‘special touch’ hebben. Je aanvoelen hiervoor is in die optiek ontzettend sterk!)

Frank M, angel investor

I needed to free up some funds. As I know that early stage investments are traditionally very illiquid, I was pleasantly surprised that Finwise was able to find a buyer for a small angel investment in a Deep Tech scale-up I had made a few years ago

David H, angel investor
