At the start of Launch, we make the first investment in your company. We invest £80,000 in Paris, plus the stipends already paid, for 10% of your company. This aligns our interests: we only make money if you do.
Each team will work closely with a dedicated Venture Partner. Our VPs are successful entrepreneurs who have already scaled and sold technology companies worth hundreds of millions. They will push you towards growing your business, and advise on product, customers and investment.
Each startup also has a dedicated member of the EF team who is responsible for making sure you get the full benefit of the resources, networks and experience we offer.
After months of hard work comes Demo Day, where every team pitches to a room of the world’s best investors. EF is uniquely able to bring together hundreds of early stage investors, from across Europe, the US, and Asia. Demo Day kicks off your seed fundraising, and typically EF companies raise more money, on better terms.
The weeks following Demo Day are focused on Investor Office Hours, where we bring the world’s best investors to you in order to streamline the fundraising process. We commit in advance to further backing every team that pitches at Demo Day by investing 15% of your seed round.
