The process of actually getting investment into early-stage startups is often surprisingly long and painful to people who haven’t gone and done it yet. Especially for startups, it is extremely challenging to raise funds: One in four businesses, surveyed by the NSBA, were not able to receive the funding they required, which led to limiting the growth of their business (Schmid, 2020).
Reasons for that can be varied - not being located in the startup hubs, high fees, or fundamental problems with the vision of the business or the steps taken to achieve these visions.
Pitchdrive's mission is to getting startups funded, remove friction, and make funding rounds happen in the simplest, fastest and fairest way. Because when investment rounds are done right, it’s an absolute win-win.
Let's take a look at the actual steps from applying to receiving funding:
If you reach this stage it means Pitchdrive ourselves strongly believes in you and your startup. Raising money for a startup is not an easy task and takes a tremendous amount of work and know-how. Therefore, Pitchdrive’s team of experts fundraises for the startup. Thanks to our network of seasoned entrepreneurs, we also give you the guidance and support you need to scale your business internationally.
Once you have reached your funding goal, it is time to grow your company using the money you received in your round. Finding funding may be the most difficult, yet rewarding element of starting and growing a business. As a founder, we want you to spend as little time as possible in ‘fundraising mode’ then get back to doing what you do best - talking to users and growing your startup.
May the odds be ever in your favour.
