100% spotlight for your startup
The minute counter doesn’t need to stress more than necessary. Your case is emailed directly to all members. And only your case. Afterwards, we facilitate an hour-long investor meeting dedicated just to you. But we don’t stop there. We typically stick with your investor communications long after the initial introduction.
Our members are qualified investors. They pay a fixed annual subscription. It is a clear signal that the people we have in the network, have proven that they are serious about their decision to invest in startups. Maybe in your startup?
We are on your side
You’re more than a number in the queue. At Keystones you enter into a paid – but long-lasting and professional customer relationship. In practice, this means that our secretariat is 100% committed to you, and works on your side every day. That means you are not alone, and you have someone to exchange knowledge with.
Profile on our investor platform
No intermediaries. Become a member of our investor platform, where you can be discovered by relevant investors, and have direct contact with those who are interested. Additionally, use us to expand your personal investor network for future benefit.
Public & Investor Relations
Our promotion process (post-closing) typically includes case stories in a newsletter to +6000 signups, news media and social media. Investor relations is not a one-off pleasure but an ongoing and lasting process, which we support by creating efficient publicity over time.
Keystones’ blue stamping helps to boost the credibility of your case. Our investors are your ambassadors in the market and you may also find it easier to get new customers, partners, employees, media attention or raise capital again in the future.
Are you ready to enter the capital market? Over half a day, we run through the key preparation points, exchange knowledge about investor strategy, materials, processes, align expectations and share simple experiences of investor dialogues.
Team analysis report
Money is not everything. What people are your team missing? What are your strengths and weaknesses? How will you build a winning team? Get the answer in a professional test report that we help you generate digitally.
Good investor understanding is underrated. Learn about the journey from startup to exit, valuation, management of investor groups and much more on our basic course: ‘Introduction to Investing in Startups’.
The Secretariat is your hotline. With us, you will be in the safe hands of specialised professionals with over 20 years of experience in business angels and investments in startups. We provide professional advice based on unique insights from several investment rounds.
Well-tested and digital processes
We are recognised for our well-tested process – from application to money landing in your account – which is fast and efficient. If you come well prepared, it can take as little as a few weeks to close the round.
Group investments that work
We love investing in groups and we are standard-setters in the discipline. The advantage of having multiple investors is that you gain a larger pool of knowledge, networks and time resources that you can draw on for years to come. At the same time, it can be easier to cover your capital needs when more people can participate.
We are just one of many building blocks
We do not bind you or exclude you from seeking out other networks. Keystones is not an either-or decision. We require no exclusivity in the presentation of your case. On the contrary, we always recommend that you run several parallel processes. We’re happy to help create auction-effects together.
We embrace broadly
Keystones’ recruitment and admission requirements reflect an agenda that the network should be inclusive in terms of gender, geography, age, experience levels, wealth, investment strategies and start-up teams. Members also come in all ‘shoe sizes’ and are at different stages of their investment cycle – from entry to exit.
