If you are looking for investments or funding and investments, get in touch! c*funds has an extensive portfolio of seed investors which we can introduce your start up to. To gain these private investments we aid with your pitch decks, make the introductions and guide you in the contracting and negotiation phase.
We often help start ups in significantly increasing their chances of getting funded by combining EU funding and private investments. The benefit of combining is that if you apply for EU funding, a lot of the content for your proposal can easily be reused to raise private investments and vice versa!
What does this mean? c*funds partners parties who are looking to set up an investment fund. In collaboration with these parties a concept of an investment fund is drawn up. This concept is sent to EIF (European Investment Fund). EIF has available funding within different thematic funding programmes. Concepts which are approved are topped up with EIF funding. The innovation fund is meant to fuel investments, boost growth and most importantly enable a more free flow of investment capital beyond country boundaries. The process of setting up an investment fund, including negotiations, lies between 4-6 months.
Setting up EIF funds is less of interest for start ups but particularly interesting for:
● private equity owners (regardless from nation, also outside EU)
● Social Impact Accelerators
● local and national governments
c*funds has already actively worked with the EIF to promote the possibilities for many startup accelerators, Angels and VC’s to set up and manage their own investment funds (often the first funds). c*funds has well established contacts with EIF and has track records on screening the documentation and guiding the preparation.
