How to Raise Pre Seed Funding

What is pre-seed?

Pre- sed funds are essentially accelerators or incubators that invest not so much in the idea but in the founders. They are usually organised into cohorts, they provide a mixture of financial investment to get you started and mentoring (some funds like Founders Factory will put a value on that).

Often pre-seed programmes are funded by large corporates for whom its a mixture of marketing (we are cool we support startups) and r&d.
