Global Founders Capital is made of entrepreneurs that have successfully built companies in the past.

Our passion is to support great businesses with gifted entrepreneurs world wide. We are pragmatic, fast and we bring deep operational expertise to the table. We are data driven, idea meritocratic and we value direct feedback.

Global Founders Capital invests stage agnostic. We do Seed, Series A or participate in later rounds. We are looking primarily for the team that we want to work with.

The better we understand the business the earlier we are willing to invest. Typically we do not invest pre-launch.
