About Us Button

The start-up ecosystem is a difficult environment. Not only is money from investors scarce, but there is also an imbalance in knowledge between investors and founders of start-ups.

When you start thinking about bringing investors on board and preparing your documents, you will realize that this is a first for you and a core business for investors. You may learn the process and how it works by trial and error and from other founders, but often time is a luxury we cannot afford.

This is why we have created key2investors: To offer you a central contact point where you can find out everything you need to know, exchange information with other founders and use proven tools to prepare the investor.
