Leapfunder Growth

Hinksprong B.V.

  Welcome to the Founders Club!   Leapfunder was co-founded by >70 active Angel investors. They are called the Founders Club. They shape Leapfunder strategy. This offer of investment is for the current Founders Club, as well as for potential new members.   (If you are a member of the Founders Club: some of this you know already.)   The Founders Club are investors who have invested in us, and use us to build their portfolio. This offer of investment is an invitation to join that Founders Club. You will have the opportunity to contribute your ideas so we can enhance our product.   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.   Since the launch in July 2014 Leapfunder has passed € 13 Mln raised in > 70 companies with ca. 70% successfully funded.   Over 2017 Leapfunder covered 68% of its operating expenses from cash revenue. It would have been possible to run cash neutral, if it weren’t for the international expansion plans.   During 2017 Leapfunder obtained regulatory clearance to operate in Germany. Leapfunder plans to expand beyond Germany to all Northern Europe, possibly followed by France.   Leapfunder handles account management, business development and compliance from Amsterdam and Berlin. All software development has been outsourced to India. All social media is run from Barcelona.   The Leapfunder products has two parts: i) the Leapfunder Note is a robust financial security that makes it easy to bring together larger numbers of equity investors. It can be used by all relevant legal entities in Germany and the Netherlands. Also Leapfunder has developed ii) the Leapfunder Hub, an online social network for investors, to facilitate building syndicates and deal discovery. The IT architecture of this online social network allows its use in almost any EU jurisdiction.   Leapfunder facilitates investment by: Providing a social networking community on leapfunder.com Providing software that allows the start-up to execute the investments online A standardized legal structure, which small investors can rely on   Leapfunder aims to benefit from an investment transaction only if the start-up is successful. The fee for Leapfunder therefore has two parts: a % cash commission on each successful transaction a % of share options in each startup that uses Leapfunder Leapfunder can exercise its share options at any time   The cash commission is intended only to cover costs, whereas the options aim to lift Leapfunder into profitability.   Leapfunder is not a crowdfunding website. Its start-ups typically aim to work with 10-20 informal investors, who are investing between E5-50k each. Investors can look at the full information on each deal by invitation only. We emphasize in all our communications that Leapfunder offers an online form of classical Angel Funding.   In order to accelerate the expansion into the German market Leapfunder is aiming to raise approximately EUR 200,000 with this round. This should give a runway of approximately one year.

Civocracy

Civocracy B.V.

Homepage startupbootcamp voetjes
Civocracy B.V. is Europe’s leading civic tech platform. Signed customers include: S. Holland, Nice, Sicoval and Monheim Am Rhein. Update: In the last several weeks 1) DITP tender with Capgemini Last month we were informed we won a national tender related to the modernization of the public sector in France. We, as part of a consortium with Mazars and Capgemini, won lots 2 and 3 (of 3), which were the most relevant to Civocracy. It is a 4-year tender.  2) Debating Security Plus: a success We successfully hosted Friend’s of Europe’s annual Debating Security Plus event, which has provided the company with our largest revenue to date (€96,000 deal in 2017, €87,250 deal in 2018). The two-day, online security conference took place 19 and 20 June. In both years we’ve seen over 1,500 people - including national ministers, military generals, international policy makers, and other experts - debating high-level security issues on the Civocracy platform, and developing future-proof policy recommendations. We are now in the process of securing a long-term contract to host online events with Friends of Europe.     3) New customers In June, we re-signed several of our customers: Ville de Lyon, Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur, and Sicoval. We also signed new contracts with La Rochelle (both the agglomeration and town), Beaupréau-en-Mauges, and the region of Provence-Côte-d’Azur. We are really excited for the new clients, new success cases, and new revenue. 4) Next steps With the success of the new signings, the national-level tender, and other long-term contracts, we are now well on the road to our Series A, something we have been preparing for for the last couple of months. Our research has shown that there are many more relevant Series A investors, particularly within the CivicTech space, in the US than in Europe, so with this in mind, Nicolas and I are spending the next several weeks in Silicon Valley. We currently have set meetings with Lightspeed Ventures and Wildcat Ventures, among others.   About Civocracy: We empower local governments to connect with their citizens, by assisting municipalties, cities and territories to make decisions in a more transparent way. The platform allows them to harness the knowledge of their citizens, ultimately better shaping communities through improved city consultations.   We have proven success with our 15 paying clients from four different countries. In 2017, we signed €262,450 in revenue. We use machine learning and big data to provide actionable insights and analytics on participation. Government are able to ask for feedback on key issues, gather ideas, and gain public perception on policy. Citizens can offer their opinion and propose projects, stay informed, and can see when their input has been read. We’ve empowered our clients to increase their reach, participation levels, and efficiency.   We are raising a bridge round of €165,000, prior to opening our Series A growth round later this year. We’ll use the bridge funding to continue developing our platform’s features, and continue growing our client base.   PROBLEM   71% of people are mad at their government, and apathy is at an all time high. In the 95 elections held across Europe since 2014, on average only 56% of people voted, where as 30 years ago (1983-7), the average turnout was at 77%. The ways people have been able to express themselves - social media, town hall meetings, protests etc. - are insufficient. This has led to widespread disengagement.     SOLUTION   The Civocracy.org platform allows for focused discussion around specific topics. For instance, the city of Lyon has consulted citizens on education reform, and Losser on biodiversity regulation. All comments are analysed by our machine learning algorithm, from which we can create detailed reports with constructive and applicable outcomes that can form policy and local projects. Citizens are also able to create discussions around subjects they wish to see improved in their communities.     Key platform features: SUCCESSES      “The Civocracy platform is innovative, interesting and brings serious added value to offline citizen consultation. This is the future, I am convinced of it.” Biel Raphael, Deputy Cabinet (Participatory Democracy), Ville de Lyon   SALES APPROACH In 2017, we launched our multi-city participation strategy programme, Territoires Fédérateurs, which teaches and empowers governments to more effectively connect with their citizens, learning collaboratively from one another, and through expert trainings. The first cohort features Strasbourg, Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, Guyane, Sicoval. This year, we will expand the programme to the Netherlands, Belgium and Switzerland.   MAJOR CLIENTS We additionally hosted the inaugural Debating Security+, an online debate run by Friends of Europe. During the 48-hour conference, we held 77 discussions and received 1750 comments. A number of high-level security officials were in attendance and hosted discussions, including Amina Mohamed, Kenyan Minister of Foreign Affairs, Gilles De Kerchove, Council of the European Union, Bert Koenders, Dutch Minister of Foreign Affairs, and Denis Mercier, Supreme Allied Commander at NATO. Many of the ideas have been included in a report that was passed to organisations such as NATO, the European Commission and the EU. They have already resigned for 2018.     *compared to traditional methods such as town hall meetings and written correspondence. Data from a consultation with Ville de Lyon in 2016.   ACHIEVEMENTS   Graduated Startup Bootcamp Amsterdam Smart City, 2015 Signed Strategic Investment with Centric B.V., 2016 Successfully raised strategic and angel funding  Launched First Optimized Version of Civocracy, July 2016 Debating Security+ conference for global security VIPs, September 2017 Designed and Launched Territoires Fédérateurs Programme, 2017 Numerous awards, including:  EU Seal of Excellence, European Institute of Innovation and Technology Digital Challenge winner 2016, Le Monde Smart City Innovation Prize 2017, 50 Companies to Invest Challenges.fr, Ashoka Social Entrepreneur to Watch   TESTIMONIALS  (from Paying 2017 Customers)    “Administrations can’t govern like they used to; there’s incredible strength to be gained by associating citizens in the process. Your tool is perfectly adapted to accompany this: it is based on modern, user-friendly practices with ergonomics, and an environment capable of stimulating quality debates. Thank you for making us progress in digital participatory democracy!” Nathalie Bonfanti, Innovation-Digital Department, Métropole Nice Côte d'Azur   “In the new digital society, we find have to provide citizens with ways to contribute through new methods. In Civocracy, we recognized their added value: the platform is a welcome addition to our existing methods."Marcel Wildschut, Alderman, Municipality of Losser   “We are confronted with a difficulty that traditional tools do not allow us to resolve: limited participation, particularly amongst young people. Civocracy allows us to address this major problem. Easy to take in hand, easy to access, it allows young people who are used to digital technology to participate, and enables us to re-engage the city more generally.” David Kimelfeld, Mayor of the 4th Arrondissement, Lyon   “Civocracy has enabled us to meet our needs, and to communicate and participate actively on social networks.”Rieneke Kanne, Councilor for Tourism, Culture and Economy of the Province, North Holland

NoticeSound

Noticesound B.V.

Music data innovation starts here  NoticeSound is primarly a technology provider. They now want to establish a data-driven organisation to screen demos submitted by artists and new talent. The goal is to receive 200-300 demos per week. All the tracks will be screened by a panel of listeners using the NoticeSound technology. The aim is to use collect and own the data about the tracks to accurately assess the likelihood of success where the track to be released. By identifying the potential success of a track in different segments, the users (both artists and music professionals) can understand the value of tracks and the ways to market it.    Business model The fee that NoticeSound asks is two folded :  Artists will be able to upload tracks to the system for free. However, if they pay a fee they will get access to the detailed analysis of how their tracks on the market would perform and insights how they can best reach their target group. Insights are new trends, buying behavior, social media channels and also socio/demographic insights.   Publishers, record companies and radio stations will pay to access the data because it will give them access to a large number of potential new artists without the need to pre-screen all their tracks. This will allow them to quickly focus on those artists that will perform well and the insights will assist them to market those artist that matter.   Intelligence The system uses a machine learning approach to improve the performance of predictions. The post-release success of the tracks can be used to automatically adjust the different variables. To choose which variables are needed and validate our research a cooperation is started with with one of the largest (media) research companies in the world. Together with them, we are able to choose the correct variables.    The use of this model helps to protect the system from copying. It won't be easy to copy because only we know the different weight for each variable. If the predicition would only be based on static survey data, the model could be easily copied by competitors.    Track record  The technology has proven success by testing for companies such as Sony and Giel Beelen to assist them in the decision-making process to choose the single of the album or scout new (international) artists. The bar graphs displays 10 tracks with the NoticeSound rating among a representative sample of the Netherlands, where you can see the track Mamacita had a low score. Once NoticeSound zoomed in on the rap scene, it became clear it was attractive within this specific market. The tracks was a number one hit in the rap scene with over 2,9 million views on YouTube.    We are now going to start with one of the biggest dance labels in the world who receive around 1000 tracks per week and would like to have a NoticeSound rating for each track.    Marketing A key requirement for success is to ensure we recruit upcoming artists as well as sufficient music lovers for the panel. The marketing strategy for this consists of :  We start a collaboration with a sales & marketing agency to create a buzz. They are a firm that specialises in placing attributed advertisements across 300 different social media channels from which they own the admin rights.  One of the most famous Dutch Radio DJs, will also promote the company both to music lovers and new artists.

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.
