Leapfunder

Angel investing for everyone

Leapfunder aims to enable early stage high-potential companies to raise equity online from a pool of informal investors. For this Leapfunder has developed online investment tools that are designed for the combined needs of the companies and the investors.   Leapfunder helps startups to form investor syndicates online. For this purpose Leapfunder has developed the Leapfunder Note: a robust financial structure that makes it easy to bring together larger numbers of investor. Also Leapfunder has developed the Leapfunder Hub, an online social network for investors, where they can build or join syndicates.   The Leapfunder Note consists of a standard convertible note, and a special purpose vehicle for bringing together investors. This is combined with the software and payment means that allow the startup to issue the securities online.   The Leapfunder Hub is an online platform which enables investors to discover each other and communicate. It also makes it easier for a startup to be discovered by a larger number of investors.   Leapfunder aims to benefit from a startup only if the startup is successful. For this reason Leapfunder will normally receive a % cash commission, but it always keeps the option of swapping this commission for an equity participation in the startups that it supports.

TradeYourTrip

Marketplace for exchanging holidays

About TradeYourTrip TradeYourTrip was created out of our own frustration, when we had to cancel our holiday and lost our money. Nevertheless we realized that this holiday would be sold again by the tour operator to another person. Since 1990 an European Package Travel law (90/314/EEG) exists, that allows consumers to re-sell their package holiday to another consumer, if they can’t go themselves. A package holiday consists of at least 2 holiday elements (mostly flight & accommodation) and the tour operator can only charge administration costs for the name-transfer.   Product TradeYourTrip is the people’s marketplace for real last-minute holidays from travellers that can’t go themselves. Both the seller and the buyer can save incremental money through TradeYourTrip. TradeYourTrip’s business model is based on a “no cure, no pay” principle and charges a 15% service fee to the seller, once the trip is sold. The marketplace is fully automated with xml-feeds to upload the holidays and has a triple security system to guarantee authenticity of the offered holidays and safeguard the (name) transfer.   Partners The uninsured traveller is the main target-audience to offer holidays on our marketplace.  Nevertheless the insurance companies are very interesting partners for TradeYourTrip, since they can deliver holidays of their clients and save incrementally (30%) on their yearly claim costs.  TradeYourTrip has partner agreements with 2 insurance companies of which one is the market-leader in Europe and active in 20 countries. Next to that deals are made with (Online) Travel Agencies to service their consumers and safeguard their commission (which they loose if a holiday get’s canceled).   Traction TradeYourTrip is live in the Netherlands (tradeyourtrip.nl) and Germany (tradeyourtrip.de) since 3 months and has proven that the concept is working. Travellers are uploading their holidays and other consumers are buying the real last minutes. The tour operators are following the law and transferring the holidays for administration costs (up to 30 euro p.p.). TradeYourTrip has been covered by the leading press (RTL news, Radar TV, ZDF, RBB TV, Telegraaf, Parool, Frankfurter Allgemeine, etc.) and has reached a target-audience of 220.000 unique visitors in 3 months.   Purpose of funds TradeYourTrip will use the funds to increase the brand awareness & scale up the traction in the Netherlands and Germany in 2016, so that the planned series A investment (roll-out in Europe) in January 2017 can be safeguarded based on incremental & growing traction.

Investors

What investors have to say about investing in startups via Leapfunder

The Leapfunder Note is a sensible and attractive way to place capital in start-ups in the Netherlands

Diversification is important in angel investing. Leapfunder is a platform that allows angels to spread their investments.

Leapfunder investing allows you to become actively involved in a start-up, just as in classical angel investing, while taking all the hassle out of transaction execution

Leapfunder is ideal for investing smaller amounts in a start-up in the very early stages. Such investments can be a powerful addition to a portfolio

With Leapfunder you get a great opportunity to build up a diversified portfolio of start-up investments, often investors can play an active role in developing the company

When I saw the Leapfunder proposition I thought straight-away: this is what start-ups need. I am an entrepreneur and wish this system had been available when I started my company.
