All projects found on Fellow Funders have passed a rigorous analysis that consists of three phases:
The first phase is to keep all necessary channels open to obtain a quality DEALFLOW. On many occasions projects come directly to us, but the lack of information on the different sources of financing available drives us to be present in many associations, foundations, business schools, etc., always with a clear objective: to offer our investors quality and investible projects.
To address the second phase, the team of assessment and management experts analyse the project based on 10 pillars which assign the SCORING Fellow Funders only publishes projects that obtain more than 65 points (out of 100).
The project has to be susceptible to investment; it is not “anything goes”.
A balanced team and committed to the project, with the appropriate abilities to manage it.
The entrepreneurial team must be above any suspicion or evidence of fraud and must have always acted honourably in their professional conduct or it is discarded immediately.
The growth data must be consistent with the project’s potential market and its implementation must be planned for the right time.
The project should be different from the rest, or what is on the market.
Who says there is no market without competition? The important thing is to know the competition well, and that is not dominant.
Scalable, profitable, and with limited financing needs.
VHow can expenses and revenues progress and why.
How can expenses and revenues progress and why.
Every investor wants to know what the divestment process will look like. All projects have a standard partners agreements.
With these 10 pillars, we have an initial screening that helps us understand how prepared or ready the project/company is. This is FELLOW FUNDERS’ SCORING
In addition to the entire previous process, if the project scores more than 65 points, we carry out the third phase with the objective of defining:
If any of the projects in this phase do not meet the principle of fairness, or the valuation is not appropriate, or the need for money is not justified or we believe that it is not sufficient to reach the next stage, as well as if the EXIT is not viable or reasonable, the project will not be published on the Fellow Funders platform.
Fellow Funders cares about developing a new value business fabric in which investors and entrepreneurs work together towards the future. To achieve this, we must all play from the same deck and therefore, we require all projects to meet some investment standards to be published. If it is not good for the investor it is not good for Fellow Funders.
