The 99 initiative

Typically more than 99% of deals are rejected by VC's, so founders have to reach a lot of investors before they finally secure funding.

Offering their support for the early-stage ecosystem, these Fantastic investors, accelerators and professional associations have committed to help entrepreneurs to quickly and efficiently reach the widest segment of the funding market by referring founders, if their fund's investment criteria don't make for a good fit, to Fantastic Beasts and other venues for matching founders and investors.

Will your firm join The 99, to make the early-stage funding ecosystem work better for everyone? Contact us here.

"This is a very positive initiative, since it should make the process of identifying and researching appropriate investment opportunities more efficient. Clearly it is also helpful for founders who are fundraising since it enables them to reach suitable investors more easily and we are particularly keen to support the national economy with such measures, during this exceptionally difficult time." - Mark Brownridge, Director General.
