We INVEST in planet+ Scandinavian Student Tech-Founders.

we are building the support tool for scandinavian student founders who are just getting started.

we’re early believers. we love rolling up our sleeves to help build from day one. our mission is to get startups a solid fundament and then onto their next funding round.

FUNDAMENT (noun): the most important facts, ideas, theory, principles, basis etc. from which something is developed

INTERESTED IN BECOMING FUNDAMENT STARTUP?

the startups we invest in are: 

student driven

we are students investing in students, who often struggle to get their hands on soft money and have limited private funds. we want to make the lifes of student founders easier and more predictable, while also paving the way to the next round of funding.

planet+ focused

ultimately, we want to make a difference – for the better, of course. that’s why our focus lies on founders and startups who are driven to have a positive effect on our planet. we want our portfolio companies to have a purpose beyond satisfying their shareholders.

technology based

technology has impacted our world in ways our ancestors couldn’t even imagine. though we face many challenges going forward, we are optimistic that there is no problem that can’t be solved by inspired souls utilizing great technology.

WHAT DO FUNDAMENT STARTUPS RECIEVE

Community

starting a company is lonely, and founders have to make difficult decisions every day with far from perfect information. in our experience, the sharing of advice and experience of fellow entrepreneurs will help on both.

with our FUNDAMENT PROGRAM we get our fundament community together, and like watching particles collide in a hadron collider, magic happens. the program consists of events — ranging from pizza dinners to summits.

we have also built the FUNDAMENT NETWORK, our platform that connects all fundament startups

Mentorship & support

with our FUNDAMENT EXPERT NETWORK we ensure that when you need help, we find you the exact right person to dive in and help work through the challenges. the experts include executives with decades of know-how, all willing to meet over coffee or help as official advisors for the startups.


we also offer our startups PITCH SUPPORT. with our pitch advisors we offer a second pair of eyes to improve our startups' odds in the fundraising process.

FUNDING

we offer a € 25.000 investment. with the most founder-friendly terms that exist, tailored to scandinavian student founders.

in addition to our investment we also have an amazing FUNDAMENT INVESTOR NETWORK, which we co-invest and collaborate with to support you onto your next funding round and beyond.

DO YOUR STARTUP FIT THE FUNDAMENT PORTFOLIO?

fundament might not be a good fit for everyone – and that’s okay. 

what we typically look for in a startup:

  • 6 – 12 months old

  • a small, high quality team

  • majority of student founders

we don’t require profits, business plans or other boring paperwork. we’re just looking for motivated student founders who need funding, support and mentoring to get through the dreaded valley of death. we always want you to get the better end of the deal.

if you’re concerned your startup does not fit the bill, feel free to contact us either way. we’ll get back to you in a couple of days.

ARE YOU WORKING ON SOMETHING COOL?

please do not hesitate to get in touch if you are interested in feedback on your idea, funding or want to know more about fundament. we usually set up a meeting the same day.

we are bringing student founders' vision to reality by taking the first financial leap with them before others will.
