How two childhood friends built a network of 1,188,122 (and counting) entrepreneurs and investors, and helped create the startup ecosystem…
The story so far…
Back in 2004, lots of people were trying to start businesses – many with brilliant ideas. But they were struggling to find the seed funding necessary to grow; and the best investors to guide their growth.
This got us thinking...
The problem was clearly undermining the startup scene: great ideas were not getting off the ground because it was hard to find investors.
We thought we could solve this. So, we set out to build an online platform connecting startups with a global network of angel investors.
Did it work?
Well, we started small, but now our network has 30 branches extending to 80 different countries. We have 1,188,122 registered members with 210,131 investors and 977,980 entrepreneurs. This makes us the largest angel investment community in the world, and we’re growing daily. As a result, we’ve already raised R4 billion for some of the coolest startups in the UK and across the world.
But that’s not all…
We’ve tried to never lose touch with our entrepreneurial roots. So, we are always looking for the next problem to solve.
In January 2018, we launched SeedTribe – a platform focused on supporting and growing the impact investment space for entrepreneurs and investors.
In April 2018, we launched BrickTribe – a platform specifically connecting property developers with investors.
Our mission remains to help as many entrepreneurs as possible connect with great investors and realise their ambitions.
