Silicon Valley Entrepreneurs, If you have a great startup or know someone else with a one, who wants to get funding, you should apply for F50’s program immediately, partly because of no equity charge for startups.
F50 ups to $5M. F50 has increased it’s co-investment target of $5 million for Season 2 (S2), which kicks off at the Moscone Center in San Francisco on 20th of October.
Fundable 50 (F50), a private co-investment platform, will accept applications through Sept 20th from fundable founders in Silicon Valley looking to raise $500K to $3M. The 30+ selected startups will attend F50’s S2 Demo Day event to pitch their startup to 300+ local & international investors. F50’s highly motivated investors will co-invest through its on & off-line co-investment platform to motivated global investors. F50 S2 is primarily targeting companies in the following four sectors:
1) Consumer Mobile, 2) Enterprise / Big Data, 3) Gaming & 4) Smart Hardware
IAC of Angels & VCs. “With great support from the recently established Investor Advisory Committee (IAC) of Angels & VCs [Venture Capitalists], F50’s growing and passionate team is well positioned to identify and help innovative startups looking to ease their funding processes,” said David Cao, Founder & CEO of F50.
Example: After exceeding its Session 1 (S1) goal of raising at least $1 million for one startup, the company has enhanced its efforts to attract more fundable founders. Oculii founder Steven Hong raised $1M for his startup in S1 and commented, “F50 was instrumental in helping Oculii achieve this dream, helping us obtain the backing of top-tier Silicon Valley angel investors, VCs and strategic partners.”
