We facilitate angel investment in Europe

CofounderZone matches business angels with startups and co-invests in early stage and growth companies

Cofounders

CofounderZone aims to build an ecosystem where two coexisting worlds can find common ground to cooperate.

One world is represented by innovative enterprises, utilizing new technologies or non-linear business models, but lacking resources to scale up. The other world is dominated by corporations equipped with abundance of knowledge, assets and often longing for new ideas.

As we believe, collaboration of that kind needs proper facilitation and fitting personalities. That is why CofounderZone puts strong emphasis on people – cofounders of startups and founders of established businesses, turned angel investors - all in order to propel the exchange of experience, as well as human and investment capital.

We invest up to PLN 4 million in early stage and growth companies in exchange for minority shares.

Investors

We have created a group of angel investors active in a broad range of industries.

The group of angel investors comprises experienced entrepreneurs, owners of successful top companies and chief executive officers.

As the registered alternative investment fund manager, we also offer cost-effective, tax-exempt structuring solutions for VC/PE investors.
