FAQ

What are Innovation Makers?

We are a closed membership club for thought leaders who are professional, fun and associated with the best investment opportunities. We are those “weirdos” that always support innovation and want to help companies grow. We are enthusiasts who look to challenge the status quo and be the first to spot tomorrow’s new innovations.

What kind of problem do we solve?

The matching between a company to its future investors has always been an unsolved puzzle. Entrepreneurs all over the world are in a constant struggle to find the right match to fund them. Whether it’s a VC, Angel investor or a private equity fund the process is usually long, costly and damages their focus and ability to pursue their real dream to create a product. From the other side of the map, investors are always on the run for the next big thing; however, finding this next “unicorn” is a complicated mission and not every investment is a right fit. Warm intros are considered to be the best method to create a perfect match, which is usually limited by geography, field of expertise and personal connections. This matchmaking market is a multi-billion-dollar market in direct fees which are paid out to finders, investment houses and other advisors. Not only this, but the indirect cost of the due diligence process from the investor's side and the roadshow from the entrepreneur’s side can add up to millions of hours in innovation and product building that are gone to waste.
