Following the recent launch of Boost Fund 1, Capital Pilot is delighted to announce the first five startup businesses backed by the fund. The five promising startups were selected on the basis of their high investability rating as determined by Capital Pilot’s rigorous Investability Rating System.

Boost Fund 1 is the UK’s first automated high-volume investment fund with a focus on supporting UK-based startups from Pre-Seed to Series A stage. With plans to complete 100 equity investments in less than six months, Boost Fund 1 is fast becoming the leading UK startup investment fund by volume.  The fund is set to back a diverse range of ambitious UK-based startups through its innovative, alternative investment approach.

What Do Investors Look for in a Startup?

Investors look at a wide range of characteristics to determine whether they’d like to invest in your startup

Whilst different investors take different approaches (especially depending on whether they are Angel Investors, Crowdfunders or traditional Venture Capital Firms), they tend to look at the same features of a small business. The point of differentiation is how they weigh those features.

The most important features lie under Market, Opportunity, Scalability and Executability. If you’re good on all these fronts then you’ll be maximising your chance of fundraising success.
