Don't worry! While we advise that you develop a video pitch over time to maximise your chances of securing funding; it is not essential. A video pitch is however a great way to emphasise the strengths of your business idea and how you plan to attack the market with the team you have or plan to recruit
The Seedups matching engine uses proprietary algorithms and a patent-pending process to match multiple Investors with Startups who have great ideas. The net result is a fair valuation and strong motivation for both parties.
Yes. All opportunities are listed for 180-days. This allows a reasonable time-frame to market the opportunity and enables a constant flow of fresh opportunities through the pipe-line.
