The online entrepreneurs' guide to investment not only explains who to approach for funding, but how to do it, as well.

Mission

The mission of the Guide is to help entrepreneurs access funding for their startups. This is done in two ways: first, by offering advice tailored to an entrepreneur’s specific situation, and second, by offering entrepreneurs a list of investors to approach for funding. The information is tailored to the stage of funding they are in, and their sector, in order to make it as informative and actionable as possible.

Impact

The Guide has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs to get a better understanding of the fundraising process, and provided them with a list of investors to approach for funding. Thousands of people have accessed the content in the Guide, through both the online and the print versions.

Scale

The platform is built in a way that makes it easy to create content for new countries, add investors, and include additional information as entrepreneurs request it. It’s also highly shareable and allows entrepreneurs to easily pass information amongst each other.
