F50 finds extraordinary founders and helps their startups with professional and strategic investors ready to make a significant impact on their growing companies. Founders can connect with investors who are the best match for their current round, while building relationships for future investment and partnerships.
F50 makes it easier for founders to raise funding for their startup from its global Investor Network. Unlike the standard online crowdfunding sites, we connect founders and investors both in person as well as online and take an active role in nurturing those relationships. F50 also has its own venture fund that frequently co-invests with its Investor Network.
Additionally, founders are not charged any fees to be part of the F50 Founder Network.
