Society3’s mission is to help more startups fulfill their business dreams than ever before possible. One way to do that is to help more startups raise money, by significantly increasing the number of startup investors. Today 90% of US accredited investors do not invest in startups. We are paving the way to a new era in startup investments where any investor can exit their investment any time – “Exit Anytime”.


More traction, more funding


1Building up market traction and market validation is a key performance indicator for every startup in the world. Our traction builder program is unique and differentiates us to other accelerators. Successful serial entrepreneurs with unique skills in online traction development are guiding startups to success. Traction means getting product-market fit, team readiness and massively growing number of users / customers. Traction is pre requisite for funding.

Exit Anytime

2Society3’s new “FundersMart” fundraising platform will quadruple the number of accredited startup investors in the next three years. We are paving the way to a whole new group of accredited investors, by introducing the “Exit Anytime” model. Investors are no longer locked into a startup investment for 7 to 10 years but can Exit Anytime.  We created new investment contracts and provide a market place for accredited investors to find others buying their shares if needed.

Smart Money Matcher

3One of the biggest challenges for startups when fundraising is to find investors that can provide more than just money. The hunt for smart money is difficult and only for experienced entrepreneurs. Society3’s fundersmart technology is providing the first match making system for smart money, showing startups investors with specific skills, experience and other intellectual assets that help grow a startup. Smart Money Matcher starts public beta June 1.



It is our mission to help more startups from around the world make their dreams come true, than ever before possible.
