Startup one-liner:

Uniborn is a platform for sourcing & co-funding startups, that grants an access to the high-grade deals of seasoned investors and offers microfunds to syndicates.

Problem the startup solves:

Uniborn is the only platform to open access to the deals of seasoned investors, helping emerging investors shortcut their way to gaining experience and access to high-grade deals.

Also, unlike other venture platforms, Uniborn pools investors into EU-regulated microfunds, which reduces syndication expenses by at least a factor of 2, customizes terms for diverse investors tiers and simplifies execution of cross-border co-investments. A microfund structure is designed to manage alternative assets, such as equity, SAFEs, loans and even crypto. It eases compliance, provides tax transparency and privacy, ensures liquidity on the secondary market and takes admin out, saving not only $7K – $10K for each syndicate but also human resources. A typical investment platform syndicates deals by creating Special Purpose Vehicles (SPVs), which ultimately assume indirect ownership, are not designed to manage assets, complicate legal support and create hurdles with banking.

Uniborn’s revenue streams are based on co-investing (one-off for co-investing if you are not directly invited) and founders’ success (success fee paid by the founders upon closing the deal) as opposed to SPV platforms that make revenue on syndication. This enables Uniborn to offer syndication at cost or even free of charge without jeopardising business model sustainability.

Progress and current status:

We are a few weeks away from the private beta, we are waiting for the final accreditation from the regulators and are finalizing the platform’s architecture. While we do this, we are also actively building a community of venture capitalists, founders and operators across Europe who are eager to connect and co-invest in promising startups seamlessly.

What is a crazy story about the startup?:

We’ve made 3 pivots during 2 summer pre-launch months, almost completely running out of cash. When we ultimately got to the final concept and value proposition, the needed funding was picked up within just 3 days.

What is a company the startup looks up to, and why?:

Vanguard. We admire the revolution they made for investors on the public markets. Uniborn is here to revolutionize the private markets in a similar manner.

The company in four years will be…

The ultimate place where tomorrow’s unicorns are born and everyone can hop on them from early on.
