FAQ - Frequently asked questions
The F4TF matchmaking initiative is designed for early-stage startups, ranging from pre-seed to Series A funding, operating in any sector within the climate tech space.
We prioritize speed, efficiency and accuracy in our selection process. We aim to move as quickly as you can provide the information we need to make a decision.
Our selection criteria include the following factors:
– Strong alignment with the mission of building a sustainable future.
– Emphasis on domain expertise with a deep understanding of the climate tech sector.
– Demonstrated resilience and resourcefulness in tackling the challenges of climate-focused entrepreneurship.
– A clear understanding of the risks associated with the business and a plan to mitigate them.
– A roadmap for technology development if necessary, along with strategies to validate market demand and secure financing.
To make the process as smooth as possible for startups, we aim to complete the due diligence process within 1-3 days after initial communication.
We curate batches of startups and share them with our investor network every month on week 1. This enables potential funding opportunities for the selected startups.
While we cannot guarantee introductions, we actively seek opportunities to connect startups with relevant stakeholders, including potential investors, industry partners, and mentors.
Once selected, we warmly welcome you as a valued portfolio company.
We kick-start the journey by carefully curating your startup’s information, which we then share with our network of investors.
Through regular communication, we have weekly CEO peer community meetings to work closely with selected companies, extend invitations to founders for exclusive community events alongside investors, fostering meaningful connections.
Moreover, we keep our growing investor network updated on your remarkable progress, creating an exciting “Fear Of Missing Out” (FOMO) effect that can enhance your visibility and opportunities within the ecosystem!
The success fees allow us at Startup Basecamp to sustain and grow our ecosystem, ensuring ongoing support for founders even after they receive funding.
This approach aligns our interests with the success of the startups we support and assure founders are at the centre of a global ecosystem with the support they need.
Over 70% of startups in our portfolio have benefited from introductions to investors fostering valuable connections within the climate technology ecosystem.
In addition to matchmaking with investors, we offer a range of ecosystem support, including:
– Mentorship and guidance from industry experts and successful entrepreneurs.
– Access to workshops and educational resources to enhance entrepreneurial skills.
– Networking opportunities with other climate tech startups, potential partners, and customers.
– Exposure through events and conferences to showcase innovations and ideas.
– Continued support and advisory services even after funding, aiding in long-term growth and success.
A startup can apply multiple times, and we make it a priority to maintain open communication with all applicants.
If, at any given time, we feel that the startup might not be the right fit for our current criteria, we want to emphasize that the door remains open.
We genuinely appreciate hearing about any updates and progress, as our goal is to provide founders with ample opportunities for visibility within our ecosystem.
