Want to get funded?

The company

Our mission is: Text To help new entrepreneurs get their act together before they talk to investors and get funded

The vision

Textin start-up funding Global market-leader helping new entrepreneurs in emerging start-up markets to get funded the Silicon Valley way.

The problem
Very small fraction of start-ups succeed in getting funded
1-5% (US/UK) start-ups get funding every year. It is an all or nothing game - You win or you lose

Investors dont want to fix flawed deals


With million startups chasing after the same money, investors are looking for reasons to say no. When they do, there is no second chance

Raising capital sucks up best part of a year


Raising capital is important, but it is labour intensive and pulls resources away from the most important thing - their company

Scott Cook was turned down by 39 venture capitalists when he tried to raise money for Intuit. Things worked out well for Scott, in the end. But most entrepreneurs can't afford to take their focus away from their company for that long.

Target Market: Founder(s) just starting out on the Idea stage and need to have basic concept sketch of what they would like to do e.g. I want to create an online SaaS marketplace and this is what I think so far with opportunity, X target market, product, price and competitors. At this stage, they want to see whether venture is viable and how they can progress it. Legal deep clean in Venture Analysis is very high level and its aim is to ensure the basics are covered re red lines for investors e.g. no Founder agreement, IP assignment, NDA and Mentor/Adviser Agreements.

The growth roadmap


Features Benefits

In the first 6 months we will focus exclusively on gaining a foothold in the market. This will reconfiguring the MVP based on user feedback. Month 7 onwards we will formulate our growth roadmap. We estimate that growth will come through: International Network Expansion We can use the existing DACB international network of offices and affiliates (Eastern Europe, South America, China, India) to develop a franchise for sale to franchise the Lean Fundly model once it has got proven traction.

Partnership with other intermediaries in the start-up ecosystem e.g. incubators, accelerators
Product Development & Diversification
