Challenge

investing in foreign start- and scale-ups, the legal, taxation and distance barriers are far too high to take the risk. In accordance to our research, simpler contracts, easy to understand taxation and local co-investors would be  required to break down those barriers.

The Concept

We organize investor meetings and workshops to stimulate a deeper exchange between investors with matching investment strategies to co-invest on a common understanding locally and globally. We collaborate to create globally applicable standard contracts and documents, educating on tax and legal differences between countries. Make it much easier to co-invest around the world

Key Elements

Unifying Startup Investment regulation and support

We see three major obstacles when investing internationally: Law, strategies and remote investment oversight.

1) Unifying Investment contracts
Over time we should be able to work with policy makers around the globe to homogenize investment laws. But in the short term, we can work on standardized contracts that work in a larger variety of countries. That way we can at least ease to invest in those countries.

2) Sharing Investment Strategies
The way people invest ranges from “spending” some money and hoping it will work out – all the way to having firm investment strategies, well developed due diligence processes and a clearly defined idea how to support the young entrepreneurs from start to IPO. We will need to help investors matching other investors with like minded investment strategies and effort.

3) Remote Investment Oversights

One suggestion is that foreign investors should always connect with local investors as lead investors and nurture the companies together – with a local connection.
