We view an entrepreneur to be any person that has a venture or valid idea and wishes to make a success of it.
It’s no secret that finding the right investor for your venture is a challenge that most entrepreneurs face. The current process of finding investment is one that is outdated, and limits entrepreneurs due to a lack of time, and network that is needed to find the right investor. From idea to developed, the platform allows entrepreneurs to present a brief outline of their venture to a network of all investor types. While doing this, entrepreneurs are able to browse through, and connect with investor profiles that suit their requirements.
We classify an investor as any person that aims to add value to a venture through capital or mentorship, in exchange for returns.
For investors, more often than not there is a minimum net-worth requirement to be able to join an angel network or even be considered as a serious investor. This minimum net-worth figure is usually so high that it excludes thousands of potential investors that can potentially fund or provide mentorship to entrepreneurs. Merge allows all investors to join. They have the ability to personalise their feed to suit their investment preferences through various filters, and will be able to connect with innovative businesses at their fingertips.
We view a Corporate Investor to be an organisation that aims to grow and develop entrepreneurial ventures through their extensive access to capital and network.
Venture Capital firms, Accelerators, Incubators and Private Equity all face similar challenges of their own. Ensuring that they have a greater quantity and quality of dealflow, while using their valuable time, capital and resources as effectively as possible. The digital platform allows for Corporate Investors to find investment opportunities that are suited to them at a much faster rate. From aerospace to agriculture, local to global and idea to fully developed, Corporate Investors are able to discover their perfect investment opportunities with maximum efficiency.
