  • The Falcon Network (or “the Network”) announces its first call for submission for funding; open from 1st December 2018 till 31st January 2019
  • The Network, which connects impact-driven individual investors with talented entrepreneurs, launched in October 2018 with committed capital of over USD 2 million

DUBAI—The Falcon Network, a pioneering new network of impact-driven angel investors, has today announced its first call for submission for funding for start-ups based in high growth markets. The application process is available to view on the Network’s website – and is open from 1st December 2018 until 31st January, 2019.

The Network will host regular pitch events where carefully selected entrepreneurs can directly meet and present their businesses to the angel investors. The Network has established strategic partnerships with business incubators and accelerators in its target markets to source the most promising investment opportunities.

Start-ups looking for seed funding are requested to visit to review the application process and submit their application. They will be asked to submit key documents including their pitch deck and business plans, after which a screening process will take place by the operating committee to assess eligibility. Successful start-ups will be hosted on the Network’s platform for prospective angel investors to review. The Network’s members will subsequently vote for the best start-ups they would like to meet at an upcoming pitch day (approximately 10-12 will be chosen).

Dr. Sayd Farook, co-founder of the Falcon Network said: “We are delighted to announce that the Falcon Network is moving forward quickly to provide budding entrepreneurs with access to the funding, mentorship, and support they require to drive their businesses forward. We’ve already received tremendous interest following our launch in October and are keen to build on the growing momentum to fund the most promising start-ups in this first round”.

The Network is most interested in funding businesses that have proof of market traction; an identifiable market opportunity, at least two co-founders with a track record of accomplishment, and with a focus on impact. The Network is looking to fund projects between $10,000-$500,000 for equity stakes up to a maximum of 25%.
