Raising funds for a new startup can seem like an overwhelming effort for a new entrepreneur largely due to the time, cost, and lack of transparency in the process. The fact that most entrepreneurs only go through this process a few times in their career adds to the challenge: after all, the investor usually knows what to expect.
When we first launched Seedsummit, we wanted to have a forum for active seed investors across EMEA to meet and get to know each other better. We were impressed by the 50+ investors who participated and actively debated and discussed issues important to them. A major To Do agreed on was to help investors and entrepreneurs across EMEA by standardizing on seed stage investment agreements. Today we are excited to announce that several of the investors across EMEA have agreed on just that.
