What We Founder Circle has to say
Mr Neeraj Tyagi, CEO and Founder at We Founder Circle said, “When a startup is at the seed stage, investors work on the credibility of the founder and not just the startup model. If a founder is seeking financial support and has rapport in the founders’ community, it becomes easier to arrange funds”.
“We Founder Circle has only become more relevant during the current unprecedented times. Due to pandemic funds have gone dry and the startup community has come to a standstill. It is the time when things can only recover with mutual support. Hence, we are working on a founders-backing-founders model to refuel the community. We have already closed 8 deals in just 100 days of operations which proves that the model is the need of the hour,” he also added.
