FundersClub is the world’s most selective & fastest growing online VC firm, targeting early investment in the world’s most promising tech startups. We help founders bring innovation to their industries (or create entirely new industries) with capital and the value-add of our community, while democratizing investing in top startups for investors.

In our first 2.5 years, we funded and supported over 115 top startups which have gone on to grow and raise >$600M, including rounds led by other top VCs like Sequoia Capital (e.g. Instacart, ZoomCar), Andreessen Horowitz (e.g. Coinbase, Teespring), First Round Capital (e.g. Thalmic, MoveLoot), and more. Our goal is to support companies through acquisition or IPO, and eight have had exits to date (including TalentBin, acquired by NYSE:MWW, and ScreenHero, acquired by Slack). We have also built a vibrant community of thousands of investors and entrepreneurs and focus on community and education.

FundersClub’s own founders are successful entrepreneurs who have previously raised venture capital, built teams and companies, exited, and invested in dozens of high-growth startups. Our team includes veterans of tech startups, established tech companies like Google and Apple, and financial firms, and our extended team includes a cross section of some of the best VC investors. Our work impacts millions of individuals worldwide, and we’ve created an environment and culture for tackling big problems and solving them.
