Connecting innovative startups in Sri Lanka with investors across the globe.

Funds Raised

Our Mantra

FUEL THE FUTURE

We focus on tech startups that have gone through idea validation. We curate every startup and help the most promising ones, become investor ready. Once entrepreneurs are ready, we use the power of crowdfunding to raise funds. We intend to make fundraising more accessible, strategic and less painful.

What we mean by idea validation 

You have identified and built a Minimum Viable Product. You are ready for beta launch and Customer Discovery.

You have paying customers and insights! You are looking to fine-tune your product/market fit and business model.

You plan on scaling execution and operations. You want to expand into new markets, regional or
global.

Our Startups

RESILIENT . INTEGRITY . COMMITMENT . HONEST

For a startup to have even a remote chance of success, you must be hands-on. We spend at least 3 months with each of our startups before they go live. These are the most promising startups in Sri Lanka that you can support!
