  1. Leapfunder

We’re a network investing method that allows everyone to invest in startups. Our goal is to help startups find early stage financing and offer financial tools developed with great care and attention. Our product focuses on enhancing the relationship of the investors and new startup companies, as well as creating a powerful investor community. How we work: Find a startup you like. Get to know the startup. Discuss with your contacts. Make an investment.

We predominantly use convertible notes as investment tool. With the convertible note the valuation problem is postponed to the second investment round. Valuing a startup in the early stage is quite challenging, or even impossible. So by using the convertible note this problem is prevented. Startups and investors like the convertible note reviewing it as a more sensible investment tool for early stage startups.

We have raised approximately 400.000 Euros via our own platform. We have 46 investors which we consider to be our founders club. They have not only invested, but use our platform and give valuable feedback on our product.
