Early Stage

Many founders agree that the beginning stages of shaping your company’s future are the most exciting, but also the most challenging. This is the point at which huge chances are taken, seemingly impossible ideas are shared and hypotheses are tested. All of this in the hope that the right foundation and support will bring the vision to fruition.

Introducing CYFRD Launchpad

Our VC pre-seed program supports exceptional tech talent, entrepreneurs obsessed with their ideas and mad scientists that dare to challenge convention and shape new markets.

We are open for pre-traction, pre-legal entity startups with a clear vision of why they will succeed.

Our VC pre-seed program will typically invest between USD 20 000 — 100 000 via a convertible loan or direct equity.

Who gets funded?

CYFRD leads through discovery. When evaluating applicants, we look for teams willing to go above and beyond what’s possible. We seek those who are fully committed to their vision and there’s no space for part-time founders.

We’re interested in transformative business model startups with founders experienced in the industry they aim to disrupt. Your team must also have strong internal development and a technical co-founder.

When evaluating deep tech startups we look at your ability to defend the value of your technology, prove it to be proprietary and deliver a viable proof of concept.

Think of us as your partner.

There are so many challenges that compete for your attention when you start a company. CYFRD helps you navigate this stage of the journey by lending hand to help secure fast validation, generate traction and custom fit a strategy to scale effectively.

Capital raise
M&A

Capital Raise

Most founders find themselves caught up raising money rather than developing their product and building the right team. CYFRD supports you throughout the raise, from deciding on a funding strategy and selecting the type of capital, to evaluating how much money to take and who to take it from.

We work alongside founders to delve into the company’s strategy, refine the business plan, identify the right solutions to address capital needs, raise debt, equity and grants and negotiate terms.

Our relationships span from traditional sources like banks and VC or private equity funds to niche family offices and sophisticated private investors.

M&A

We guide founders through the sales process, from discussions on whether its the right time to sell and who to target, to the preparation of presentations, negotiations on the terms and arrangement with banks for post-closing investments of funds.

We also advise the leading international funds and companies on the search and acquisition of tech and IT companies in Eastern Europe.
