  1. Due diligence principles guide;
  2. Screening process;
  3. Investment reports - we push for transparency and set up a high bar in startup assessment making it very comprehensive;
  4. Podcasts, where we apply the principles on real cases and share the market updates
  5. Economic downturn for Angel Investors
β€£

Establish external advisory board framework for founders to support their operations during downturn

Result: map a framework and roll out for founders supported by Fund Fellow Founders and Estonian Founders Society.

β€£

Establish an Estonian-Swedish angel investment bridge - the natural evolution from Skype mafia to new generation of cross-border angels

Result: build close relationship between two ecosystems bringing collective investing approach.

Connecting unique people and deals

  • FFF is a structured, professional way for (ex)founders, investors and C-level employees with a proven track record to invest their money and skills.
  • FFF receives 70+ applications, and we directly approach 100+ startup companies every month.
  • FFF optimizes sourcing methods, builds relationships with co-investors and identifies the key contributors to our current deal flow and due diligence process.
  • FFF connects cross-border investment opportunities with a network of committed angel investors.
  • FFF keeps you updated on the latest trends, investment opportunities and news.

Better quality investments

  • FFF performs screening and legal processes, which increases the probability of startup success from fundraising to exit.
  • FFF takes care of business intelligence – business information is always up to date, and angels have access to reports and audits.
  • FFF values its members’ time and presents only high-grade investment opportunities.
  • FFF offers greater purchase power, better terms and stronger deals than a private person.
  • FFF absorbs the legal costs.

Building bonds and trust within our community

  • A wide network of ambitious and skilled people who could become an investor to your startup or your next co-founder, boss, colleague or friend.
  • FFF performs the screening process, which is time-consuming, thereby increasing your free time.
  • Sharing personal stories of how you cope with work-life balance (stress, workload, etc.) creates a win-win, as you are helping others and simultaneously increasing your power as an influencer.
  • Membership can give you confidence to start a new career and stay motivated in your aspirations.
  • With a successful investment path comes good publicity. That leads to greater visibility and increased experiences.
  • A safe, solid foundation for sharing experiences in the field of investments.
