FundersClub became the first online VC firm in March 2012. We are proud to have invested in the top 1-2% of the companies we review, representing the world’s most promising startups.

Our portfolio companies have gone on to raise $6B+ of follow-on capital from other leading venture capital firms. They are currently valued at more than $30B.

The Future of Venture Capital

Today in the U.S. there are over 10 million accredited investors, but only 250,000 of them are currently investing in startups. FundersClub founder Alex Mittal joins Tom Sosnoff to ask (and answer) the big questions. How do we get the other 9.75 million investors to join the startup revolution, and what would the world look like if they did?

What We Do

We source the world’s best startups

Our venture team sources early stage investment opportunities through direct relationships, referrals from our investor members and founders, as well as connections to top startup incubators including Y Combinator, top seed stage VC firms such as First Round Capital, and top superangels. We first invest at the Seed and Series A stage, and seek to follow on in later rounds.

We vet startups through a rigorous process

After an initial review with one of our venture partners, we carefully evaluate the product, team, market, competition, traction, and other parameters before our Investment Committee decides whether to move forward. A selected panel of 270+ experienced startup professional further gives feedback on each startup. This third-party opinion provides an additional data point to determine whether the company has what it takes to be a VC-funded company.

We fund less than 2% of the startups we review

We make less than 2% of the startups we review available for funding on our platform. We are proud to be able to offer these opportunities, typically reserved to a select few, to our accredited investor members. FundersClub investor members securely invest alongside institutional VCs in major fundraising rounds in just a few clicks.

We support our startups to help them thrive

Our role goes far beyond providing financial resources to the founders we pick. We actively support our portfolio companies and give them access to leading software and community that help them get an edge during their journey. By helping our founders build their team, close customers, get advice, raise their next round, and more, we help them be successful and ultimately drive our returns up.
