We Founder Circle (WFC), a startup investment platform for early stage founders, is planning to invest in 200 startups in 2023.  Established in 2020, the company has so far invested in 72 startups, of which 25 startups are founded by women.

Neeraj Tyagi, Co-Founder of We Founder Circle, said that a part of the 200 start-ups will be funded directly by the company, while the remaining will be raised through the investor network that it has developed.  “Our platform enabled investments worth USD 12 million in 33 start-ups in 2021. We have developed a network of 6,500 investors from different parts of the country,” Tyagi said.

The platform is also looking to tap into a hitherto untapped potential in tier 2 and 3 cities. Besides roping in investors from tier-I cities, we are organising events in smaller towns like Kota to educate the investors about a new asset class, said Gaurav VK Singhvi, Co-Founder of We Founder Circle.

Singhvi said the company is partnering with local start-up ecosystems like T-Hub to make the platform in democratising early-stage start-up investments. “Local ecosystems play a significant role in building the start-up ecosystem of a region. Our aim is to create more of such partnerships,” he added.
