Each day, hundreds of introductions between founders and investors are made.
Although, over 99% of them are considered a waste of time.

Our mission is to empower technology companies with confidence to build amazing things, by creating a smarter system for finding capital.

Fun. Fast. Gamified.
From AI-powered nutritionists to ultra-fast battery charging, we foster connections with our unique pool of investors ranging from VCs to Angels, to family office members.

The founding team is what it’s all about - they are the enablers for a better future. fundsUP is dedicated to supporting founders by taking the difficulty out of fundraising. So whether founders are first-time fundraisers or looking for a Series A investment, fundsUP technology provides instant exposure to their matching investors.

We believe everything starts with great people, not only with great technology
That’s why we put FounderFirst™.

Currently, the web-based application is dedicated for Founders, and the iOS app is dedicated for Investors.
From the team who brought you…

The fundsUP founding team has been supporting the startup ecosystem since 2011 when Arjen Strijker founded Capital On Stage, an unconventional conference with a mission to change the world of investment.

Capital On Stage approached this matchmaking in a totally new way, with over 400 top-tier VC’s pitching live on stage to a room of funding-ready companies.

In the past seven years the company hosted 23 conferences and even more gatherings connecting investors, founders, politicians, industry leaders, and even royalty; from Europe, to Asia to the Americas.

The transparency was inspiring for the network’s 25,000 entrepreneurs.
