Our goal is to identify high potential technology companies and accelerate them to Series A by working alongside an expert network of investors.

We select from over 5,000 technology startups on the Dreamstake platform and match with sophisticated investors.

OUR SERVICE

We help investors to find the best tech startup investments

Investors need to have confidence that they are receiving access to the best possible opportunities. We select startups that we believe have a realistic chance of securing Series A investment within a 12 to 18 month timeframe and following thorough due diligence. Our team has a deep understanding of technology startups. We have a range of skills ranging from investment banking through to technology and review over 1,000 business plans every year. We know what investors are looking for and can help create an attractive strategy to maximise investment returns.

  • We attract the best startups from throughout Europe by working closely with other parts of the eco-system. We talk at international startup conferences, act as judges and mentors on numerous accelerator programmes and partner with angel groups. We also run Dreamstake Academy with the help of Google Campus in London.

  • We provide free support to startups through an extensive programme run out of Google Campus. We also work individually with specific founders to validate their propositions and prepare them for investment.

  • All startups go through a rigorous vetting process before being introduced to investors. This involves analysis of their business plan and a series of face-to-face meetings. We also carry out background checks before putting startups forward.
