Society3’s mission is to help more startups fulfill their business dreams than ever before possible. We want to help more startups raise money, create jobs and stimulate the local economies than ever before imaginable. We see millions of startups create more jobs than the globally combined unemployment rate. They will create more wealth in their local communities than in the previous quantum leap of society during the industrial revolution or in the first society evolution during the Egyptian dynasty a few thousand years before. We are Society3.

In supporting our mission, we run a traction focused accelerator program and a unique online fundraising platform that cut cost by a factor 10 and increases fundability by a factor hundred. We are also creating awareness for the importance of supporting startups around the world. 

More traction, more funding


1Building up market traction and market validation is a key performance indicator for every startup. Our traction builder program is unique and differentiates us most. 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 also a pre requisite for funding.


2Society3’s new “FundersMart” fundraising platform connects entrepreneurs with investors and investors with innovative startups. The business model reduces cost of fundraising significantly and is more attractive to investors than conventional equity based crowdfunding. A transformational funding concept paves a new way for investors and entrepreneurs to create a more successful funding outcome and exit.

Tracktion tools

3Society3 is also unique in the way startups get supported with proprietary technology. We decided to provide applications dedicated to startups increasing market attention and boost viral marketing campaigns. The technology is the first that provides a repeatable way to create viral campaigns. Over 1,000 successful buzz campaigns where driven by S3-Buzz. The application is developed in our own technology labs.



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