FINTECH Circle is Europe’s 1st Angel Network focused on Smart Capital, bringing investors together with the best fintech entrepreneurs.
Many startups fail to succeed due to lack of opportunities to receive new funding. Sometimes they are close to securing the backing, however they might lack the capability to present their ideas and business in the best possible light to potential investors. This isn’t just disappointing for startup owners, but also for investors and potentially the industry, as some ideas that have never been brought to fruition, could potentially be world-changing and very profitable. FINTECH Circle’s Angel Network helps the best startups to perfect their pitch and provides an opportunity to present the business to the best investors out there.
How does it work?
We have a strict process of reviewing new fintech startups and if successful in your application, we will guide you through the best practices when developing your content and proposal for our investors.
We shortlist the startup applications against our proprietary methodology, selecting the top 12-14 applicants.
The selected startups are invited to present in front of FINTECH Circle’s experienced Selection Panel where the top 6-8 startups are chosen.
The shortlisted startups will be invited to a coaching day where we look at the documentation, slide decks and presentations. By finalising the pitches our startups will be fully prepared for the following angel network event.

The startups that successfully pass the selection days will present their ideas and business plan to the FINTECH Circle angels. This exclusive event is only attended by our investors and selected startups. A rare opportunity to pitch directly to fintech investors who are actively seeking the best startups and to network with some of the most influential players in this sector.
