Our Practice Pitch Breakfast is not a competition. It is a time for entrepreneurs and investors to fellowship, learn from each other and build relationships with one another no matter where we are located. We come in as strangers and leave as family.
Practice Pitch Company
At Fundify, we’re in the business of making it simpler to build your dream.
We’re surrounded by entrepreneurs with big ideas that can solve problems in new ways. But they need access to capital to bring those ideas to life. Now that U.S. law allows most of us to invest in private companies, people are paying attention to the success of Angel Investors who get in early on Startups that make it big. Think Uber, Airbnb and Facebook among others.
Today with Fundify, you can become an Angel Investor with as little as $10 per deal. And while investing in this asset class carries risks, we believe it can be an important part of a balanced investment strategy.
