About the Fundraise Accelerator

Learn More

The program gives teams an insider’s view on how VCs operate and how they can optimize their fundraising tactics and toolbox accordingly. While doing this we also take founders through the building and execution of a no-BS fundraise prep that’ll secure them the network and skills needed to close their next round.

The program is led by a community of emerging VCs, combining class-based theory with real-world assignments designed to get you investment ready. Participants will get access to 30+ hours of pre-recorded sessions on VC funding and participate in weekly AMAs and talks with VCs and founders further on the entrepreneurial path.

Every week has a new assignment that brings founders closer to a fully developed fundraising plan with an investor target list, tactics and tools to be deployed. Founders won’t experience happy ears, feedback is direct and if they don’t do their work, they’ll be ejected from the program. This ensures that no one lags behind and slows the cohort’s progression down.

Hack & Hustle

Hack & Hustle pioneers a combined community and investment approach that brings founders, emerging managers and capital providers together. These three communities add to making the flywheel of the VC Twilight Zone run faster.

We believe that empowering community investment in unloved and overlooked sectors and geographies will produce outsized returns by paving the way for capital into hard to access, but long needed, innovations.

   Our Ethos   

Genius is Global & We Hate that Opportunity Isn’t

In Europe, 60% of VC investments are placed within 20 Metropoles (EIF data). Around two thirds of the world’s unicorns are located in the U.S. and China (CB Insights Data). And in these countries, the vast majority herald from just a couple of cities with Silicon Valley being the extreme case. Looking to the geographic concentration of wealth, which is where the first non-institutional checks must come from, the picture is even grimmer, harshly affecting access to angel capital. Last time we checked, genius is evenly distributed across the world. Investment opportunity should be too.
