Investors

In naming investors we talk about the entire ecosystem of Incubators, Business Angels, Venture Capital, Private Equity and Growth Accelerators. The investors can choose which development stage peaks their interest AND which kind of support they are willing to render.

At Shark Channel empowered investors become de facto business incubators in support of their chosen start-ups – everything from providing risk capital, rendering distribution support abroad to providing working space or infrastructure.

Expand Your Horizons

Investing in a Startup bears a certain resemblance to dating – if there is no chemistry, the partnership will soon falter. Nonetheless, Investors normally only get to know Startups from dry, formal documents that make it difficult to connect with the people behind the idea on a personal level. Our innovative video pitch function is designed to remove that barrier, restoring the human touch, and making it possible for all parties to truly understand each other.

Tell us more about the resources you are willing to offer, everything from risk capital, distribution support abroad, brand development capabilities to working space or infrastructure.
