Application Process to get funded
We have a strict process of reviewing new fintech startup investment opportunities.
Each quarter, we rate all startup applications against our proprietary methodology, selecting the top 18-20 applicants.
The selected startups are invited to present in front of FINTECH Circle’s experienced Selection Panel where the top 8 startups, which will present to FINTECH Circle investors, are chosen.
The startups, that make it to the next round, meet up with our coaching panel which advises on what to include in presentation and provides feedback on how to prepare before presenting to investors.
Angel Network Event
The startups that successfully passed the selection days will present to FINTECH Circle angels at an exclusive London event.

This isn’t just terrible news for startup owners, but also for investors and the rest of us (potentially profitable and world-changing ideas were never brought to fruition).
