OUR FLEXIBLE INVESTMENT MODEL

We want to attract the best companies. Period. We realise that not all startups are the same and believe they all have slightly different funding requirements. So we have a flexible investment model that can invest the right amount of capital at an appropriate valuation.  This allows us to work with a hungry young team with an MVP and  big aspirations as well as a seasoned management team that has product in market and revenue coming in the door.

We offer startups between $20,000-$100,000 in return for between 5-10% equity

In addition to the funding, all Flux startups also receive:

  • Acceleration over a 6 month period driven by world class mentors
  • Connections to the Flux network of founders, partners and mentors across the globe
  • Perks from our partners
  • Office space for six months
  • Demo Day and other investor connections

The application process

Our application process is designed to be simple and should be even easier if you already have a business plan or executive summary. We use a platform called F6S to receive and manage applications. 

The most important thing to know about the application process is that you can get started now! Your application will be automatically saved allowing you to work on it up until the deadline. The sooner you start your application the better, as that gives us a chance to engage with you, give you feedback and help you submit the best possible application.
