Early in 2020 the world changed. Seed-stage funding dried up, venture-funded businesses began to run out of money, people across all sectors of the economy lost their jobs. A lot of the problems we were solving in 2019 are no longer the most important to solve in 2020, and founders are pivoting fast. And, many of those now out of work will turn their attention to these problems.
WeWork Labs, Techstars, Seedstars and King’s Accelerator are just a few of the organisations helping to nurture and develop these companies, and you’ll be able to discover the pitches from their cohorts - and other events world-wide - right here. For example:
Existing start-ups urgently need to connect with additional investors. The new start–ups that are rising to new challenges will do so against a backdrop of a reduced availability of capital and greater scrutiny by those investors who are still active. Today’s start-ups are the problem-solvers, innovators, employers and wealth creators of tomorrow – and we want to help them succeed. Success starts with having more conversations, with more investors.
We want to help investors to identify the best solutions, the best investments. That begins with a conversation, informed by a pitch. At Fantastic Beasts, we want to help those conversations to start, so that tomorrow’s Centaurs and Unicorns can get going, today.
Events are now E-vents. Register your virtual event if you’re the host/organiser, so the global investor audience knows about it. Submit your pitch video if you’re a founder. On-board yourself as a Professional, Sophisticated or HNW investor if you want to find the greatest investment opportunities & support the ecosystem. Let’s get more eyes on the best pitches and more investment into the best start-ups.
