Your founder journey.
Shadow Foundr supports founders at every stage in their journey by providing educational guides to help get businesses investment-ready and a platform to support the fund raising process. Whether you’re a founder who doesn’t know where to start, or you’re looking to raise a round for your established business, your journey can be tailored to your needs.
Gain complete access to educational guides, consultative articles and startup tips on the educational platform to learn how to grow your idea, become investor ready and begin your funding journey.
Reach out to your personal network of existing shareholders, followers, family and friends to help gradually grow your startup from the seed stage. This element of the campaign is not visible to either the public or our own network of investors and lasts 4 weeks.
Once a campaign has demonstrated traction via the private raise, the opportunity automatically switches to a public raise, where we introduce the opportunity to our seasoned community of private investors, who are experienced with early-stage equity investments.
At the same time, we act as a co-funding platform, collaborating with other groups and platforms to ensure opportunities are funded and investor risk is mitigated. Our platform is transparent, clearly displaying which groups have raised what amounts.
When the round is complete, we can introduce your business to other funding institutions, VC’s and family offices, allowing you to tap into larger funding sources, through our assistance and introductions to our extensive follow-on funding networks.
The founder platform
No matter where you’re at, be it budding seed-stage to established founder, our platform has something for you, including a wealth of invaluable guidance and tips through curated educational articles, and document templates. The guidance provided is targeted and will depend on what stage you are at in your funding journey.

Moving your journey forward.
Upgrade from Startup plan to Seed plan when:
You have a viable pitch deck prepared and are investment-ready.
Upgrade from Seed plan to Scale plan when:
You have raised at least 30% of your funding target from your private round and all due diligence has been met.
Beyond Scale to follow-on funding when:
You have completed your funding round and have the necessary legal foundation to scale and raise follow on funding.
If you start your journey on the startup subscription plan, once you have a viable pitch deck and you are deemed investment-ready, you will be able to gain access to the seed plan, where you will be able to invite your close networks of friends, family and followers to invest into your business. This element of the campaign is not visible to either the public or our own network of investors.
After you have concluded your private round (seed subscription), met all due diligence requirements and raised a minimum of 30% of your funding target, the opportunity can move onto the seed plan, where you can undertake a public funding round. At this point, your opportunity will be presented to Shadow Foundr’s private investor network and the wider investment community, with full visibility.
Once a campaign reaches the funding target or minimum threshold, and all the relevant criteria are completed, including new shares being issued, funds will be transferred.
With our fully regulated, automated platform, the support of a world class team and access to our global investor network, we can help you secure vital seed and growth capital, whatever stage your business is at.
For investors, Shadow Foundr offers a boutique style service for those looking to invest into early-stage businesses. With our Investor Relations team on hand to answer investor queries and assist throughout the entire investment process, Shadow Foundr offers a very different proposition to other companies in the space.
We understand investing into early stage businesses is an exciting concept, but we also understand the importance of putting the investors’ interests and compliance at the core of the activity. Extensive due diligence is carried out by the team; valuations and entrepreneurs are questioned in depth; and opportunities scrutinised, before we seek a commitment from the founders and their followers to fund a significant proportion of a target fund raise, prior to releasing the campaign to our private investor network and the wider investor community.
