German angel investors and startups alike should have no fears finding their perfect match, as Leapfunder went live in Germany. The Amsterdam-based angel investor network has been paving the way for crowdfunding in the Netherlands for some time, and they are now determined to take on even bigger challenges.
Germany has a very mature venture investment ecosystem. And while this is true, a lot of it still is really ‘hand-made’, thus lacking transparency and standardization. Investors tend to have their own contracts and pooling structures. This is where Leapfunder comes in. By working with experienced German angel investors and lawyers, a consensus is being developed around pooling investors under German law. Leapfunder’s approach could make everything more predictable, thus creating a lot of value in the market.
