Fundz Pitch Deck

  1. Our Founder Encountered a Problem That He Realized Every Startup Faces When I began my first startup, Flockminer, I really had no clue what I was doing. I had a great idea and initial capital from family and friends, but when it came to running a company or securing a future round I hit a brick wall. I believe most startups are the same: great ideas, passion, and drive, but lack the resources, community, and network to get them to the next stage. I have found this to be true across the world, but more so in emerging economies, where entrepreneurs are driven, talented, and passionate, but have far less access to capital. David Mark
  2. Solution: Support Not Investment Fundz recognized that funding startups in the emerging economies takes more than one time cash infusions, but rather should mimic both a mentorship model along with the funding model of a peer to peer donation platform. To accomplish this, Fundz merges both community and crowdfunding by bringing mentors and supporters together in order to help entrepreneurs from emerging economies get the ongoing capital and guidance they need.

  4. How Does it Work? ● Fundz uses a social media platform structure as the gateway for startups, mentors, and supporters to engage with each other. ● Crowdfunding is done through recurring support pledges on a weekly, monthly, or quarterly interval. ● As startups grow they engage and report on their progress to the crowd. Bonds between the emerging economies and funders from around the world help encourage engagement and financial support. ● Specific perks vary from project to project.
