For VCs & Angel Investors

Investing in start-ups can be rewarding and lucrative but doesn’t come without risk. Reducing this risk leads to fewer losses and higher levels of profit. So whether you’re a VC or an Angel investing in pre-seed companies, having a trusted technology partner in your network reduces risks associated with building complex technology, or backing Founders without technical experience. Smart81 acts as your co-investor, delivering resource in exchange for debt or equity, reducing your capital at risk and minimizing the risks associated with delivering technology, leading to fewer failures and more stories of success.
