Frequently Asked Questions
Who is IfWeRaise for?
For now, we're focusing on founders who:
Self-identify as being underserved based on race, gender, sexuality, socio-economic background or disability
Are working on a digital (not physical product) based startup
Have at least £50k SEIS allowance remaining
Are you only focused on founders looking to raise?
Absolutely not! Not every founder needs to fundraise. Not everyone dreams of IPO. And VC isn't a good fit for all businesses.Our goal is to empower founders to be confident in choosing whether angel investment, venture capital or another fundraising route is the best fit for their business.
Do I need to identify as under-represented to be an angel advisor?
Not at all, we believe that allies have an essential role in making the startup ecosystem fairer. What's very important is that you share our values and mission. We ask everyone on our platform to follow our Code of Conduct.
