We back innovations that fit the following criteria...

Upscalers stage investment pre seed, seed and serie A

... early stage (Pre-seed, Seed, Series A)

We'd love to hear from you early on. As people who previously built billion-worth companies, our members can bring their experience, skillset and network to help you.

upscalers geography thesis are mainly Europe, but also US and Israel

... based in Europe, the US or Israel

We think Europe has a unique potential for being the new prominent place to start, scale and sell a business (or do an IPO).

upscalers diversity thesis by investing in women founded companies

... with preferably a Female founder

We believe investing in Female founders is the right choice for the future since they tend to perform better and because Tech needs to be more inclusive.

FAQ for investors

How are you different from a Syndicate or an Angels' club?

keyboard_arrow_down

Syndicate? Hell no. Angels' club? No way. We are a community. We want our members to create real relationships that go beyond sharing dealflow and co-investing. Plus, we are cross-border, meaning that you can meet people from all over Europe.

How can I meet and interact with other members?

keyboard_arrow_down

We have set up a community platform where our members can interact with each other. We've also created Teams, which are Whatsapp groups of ten people, where it is easier to interact. Members of teams commit to a one-hour Zoom call per month. Teams are renewed every six months so you can meet members across the whole community.

How much does it cost to become a member?

keyboard_arrow_down

All our members pay a 1,200€ yearly membership. This allows us to make sure that people are committed and bring value to the community and founders we invest in. It also covers our daily costs to bring you as much value as possible

Can I trial Upscalers before joining?

keyboard_arrow_down

We can offer a 3-months free trial. However, people opting for the free trial plan pay a 2,400€ membership when joining.

How many deals can I expect to see from you each month?

keyboard_arrow_down

We share one to two qualified deals per month with the community. All deals come with a pitch deck, a video from the founders and an investment memo written by our team. On top of that, community members also share their respective dealflow with the community (independently from Upscalers validation process).

What is the average ticket you invest per deal?

keyboard_arrow_down

For now, we collectively invest tickets from 100K€ to 500K€ per deal. The minimum ticket per investor is 5K€. So far, the maximum ticket that has been invested by a member is 100K€.

Is it mandatory to invest in every deal you share with the community?

keyboard_arrow_down

No. It is 100% your choice to invest (or not) in the deals we share.

If I choose to invest will my name be on the company’s Cap Table?

keyboard_arrow_down

This is up to the founders. We can either set up an SPV, which invests in the company on behalf of its members, or invest directly.

Do you take any carried interest?

keyboard_arrow_down

No we don't at this stage.
