Who's it for?
In general, we invest in teams of passionate entrepreneurs with mass-appeal consumer products who are great problem solvers, know how to execute, are engaging communicators, and are willing to hustle.
What problem does it solve?
Bringing a mass-appeal consumer product to market is difficult and expensive. Early stage funding is in short supply and hard to secure, so many entrepreneurs turn to crowdfunding only to realize that they lack the funding and expertise to succeed.
How does it help?
Start100 invests $50K in initial funding to fund an expertly managed rewards crowdfunding campaign and one-week bootcamp in Charlotte, NC. Portfolio companies receive ongoing coaching and mentoring and top performers receive follow-on funding.
START100 is part angel fund, part accelerator, and part start-up coach for potential high-growth product entrepreneurs that are great fits for crowdfunding. We invest $50K in product entrepreneurs, help them execute a successful rewards crowdfunding campaign, and build a foundation for long-term success.
