CFG for Startups Looking to Raise Capital

CFG is an online platform where potential investors explore startup investment opportunities, particularly accredited investors. If you are looking for investors for your startup, you want to be on CFG.

For eligible startups, adding your Pitch Summary (listing) on CFG is absolutely free. We can do more than that and connect you directly with interested, accredited, angel investors, at the lowest rates. If your startup qualifies, we will offer you packages of introductions to interested angel investors and more.

The Advantages of Raising Money from Accredited Investors with CFG

The main purpose of promoting your capital raising campaign on CFG is to connect directly with accredited angel investors. Beyond the money, they often bring with them the added value of expertise, experience, and network. We believe that interacting with investors is a great way not only to raise capital, but to strengthen your network, gain insights, and improve your pitch and business plan.

Once your startup is accepted to use CFG as your fundraising platform, we will get you connected with accredited angel investors that are interested in your startup and expressed an interest to connect directly with you specifically. And while we do it we give you peace of mind, flexibility, freedom, and full control. It is also cost-effective and affordable.

Our advantages:

  • Real investors, real interactions: You pay for personal introductions to real, active angel investors that have seen your Pitch Summary on CFG and want to interact with you. These investors can bring along other investors, and often commit to investing well above your minimum accepted amount. 
  • No brokerage fee, no carry: We take no part of your investment, making it easier for investors to invest in your startup. 
  • As much or as little as you need, you’re in full control: You can take in as many or as few investors as you want, and be in full control of the process. We are not taking any part in the transaction. You can start with a purchase of a relatively small amount of leads, then add as you go along.
  • You can choose to leave the marketing to us. We encourage you to advertise your CFG Pitch Summary, but if you prefer you can just leave it to us. We will be promoting your Pitch Summary ourselves in any case.
  • Data: If you do make online marketing efforts aimed at your CFG listing, we will provide you with full access to the data (via Google Analytics) so that you can make the most of your marketing activities.
  • Control your level of public exposure: Some startups want to reach angel investors but do not want their information or even the fact that they are accepting investments to be public. We will customize the listing and its visibility as per your request. For example, we can have your Pitch Summary visible or not to Google Search, have some or all of your Pitch Summary limited to only registered users, or limit it only to specific investors with password protection. 
  • No exclusivity or limiting clauses: When on CFG, you can choose to have your offering also presented on other platforms or your own website. 
  • No public count, no pressure: We do not display information about how much money you have been raising on CFG. You don’t have to worry about “showing momentum” on the campaign. 
  • No Time Limit: There is no time limit and no ticker pressuring you. You can have your CFG listing as an ongoing channel to bring in angel investors for as long or as little as you want. 
  • The lowest rates: With CFG you are paying for the leads, so the cost actually covers marketing. That makes us by far the most cost-effective option available. Having a listing is free. We do not ask for equity and give you flexible payment options.

Qualifying to Appear on CFG

CFG is a great place to find angel investors, so the startups that come on our platform are typically raising their seed money (including pre-seed and late-seed), or bridge rounds. CFG is for innovative startups, not for SMBs or alternative assets. For most startups, the relevant US regulation is Regulation D 506c.

To qualify for a listing on CFG startups are screened and selected based on the Five Startup Strength Indicators. We prefer startups that have at least two notable strengths out of the five. Startups may be accepted if they have only one of the Five Startup Strength Indicators if it represents a stellar achievement in its category and if they are recommended to CFG by one of our deal-flow partners. Our team also reviews startups for other aspects of their offerings, such as valuation, market opportunity, and “red flags”.
