We have created unique programs for the startup ecosystem. This program offers powerful benefits, all year around as the program is offered on an annual basis. Startups at any stage can benefit from the program. Startups looking for funding will be able to campaign multiple rounds throughout their annual program as well as upgrade/renew their program thereafter. Startups that have just raised funds can also leverage the program to meet with corporates and stay in touch with future investors by providing constant updates on their business through our proprietary CBA Investor Portal. Irrespective of the type of program, each startup member is provided a dedicated Investment Manager (IM), creating high value to startups.
A network of smart and vertical focused investors
Your IM will provide feedback of your pitch during onboarding and campaigns which will be based on investor feedback. The feedback can help you not only to sharpen your presentation but also to establish milestones attractive for investors.
Campaigns to investors
Your IM will identify the right investors from our network of 200 plus angel groups and 3000 plus investors including corporates, and start the campaign to arrange your calls and meetings.
Investor Call and Meeting Support
Your IM will arrange meetings with institutional and accredited investors and stay engaged. As the investors are based around the world, multiple meetings will be planned based on time zones. We also work with angel groups, investment clubs and corporates where a startup member can pitch to live events.
We also do physical events and work with other event organizers where the startup member may have an opportunity to pitch.
Dynamic Traction Updates
Your IM will keep the interested investors updated on our proprietary CBA Investor Portal based on your feedback about milestone achievements or important developments. This process starts developing relationship with interested investors who may be looking for a particular milestone to make investment decision.
A network of more than 2000 domain experts spread around the world
Currently we do not actively campaign for getting mentors and experts for the startup members. However, during campaigns the opportunity gets exposed to various angel groups and many of their members are domain experts who may offer their expertise to startups.
We are in the process of making a more robust offering for startups about finding mentors and experts. Right now the startup member can discuss with the IM for this possibility.
Exposure to Corporates
A network of 2000 corporates in most OECD countries
Corporates and startups have started working together. Early adopter corporates have seen clear benefits in engaging startups at various stages.
We work with corporates who are looking for strategic innovations through startups. We offer them no cost program and very focused technology scouting programs.
For our startup members' exposure to corporate is a soft or direct benefit. If the startup member wants to target particular corporate and if it is viable for us, your IM can work with you.
