Phase 2: Prototype

You'll work with design team to design a brand your customers will love. Then we'll do UI/UX design of your web or mobile app, making it interactive so it looks and feels exactly how your final product would look.
Phase 3: Prep
OUTCOME: Legal, accounting, & investor-ready
In this phase we'll get you ready to sit in front of investors. That includes thing like creating a valuation & determining your funding goal, getting your pitch deck created, business plan, shareholder agreements, cap table, and more. We also take care of getting you incorporated so you're 100% ready to sit in front of investors.

Here we'll work to get you as many investor meetings as possible. We'll identify who the right investors are based on check size, market, activity level, location, and more. Then we'll put a strategy in place to ensure you start getting meetings with investors, & help you negotiate the best deal for your startup. We'll also do outreach on your behalf to our own network of investors through Launch Fund.

Frequently Asked Questions
How do you have such a high success rate?

There's a few reasons. First, we are very selective about the startups we accept into the program (only about 10% acceptance rate). Second, we have a system that we've tested with hundreds of other entrepreneurs, and made better by working with investors and mentors with years of experience building successful startups.

Most startups fail because they are just 'doing' or 'hustling' but aren't following a step-by-step system with real measurable milestones. We work with our startups to put those milestones in place and help them meet those milestones.

What about the other 33% who don't get funded within 6 months?

A small percentage of that 33% have life hurdles that force them to take some time away which lengthens their process past 6 months. The larger percentage of that 33% just takes them longer than 6 months to raise funding because they're in a niche market that makes it harder to find the right investor.

Regardless, our team won't stop working with you until you get funded, even if it takes longer than 6 months, and there's no additional cost for our continued help.

How is this different from other accelerators/incubators?

First, most accelerators offer very high level guidance, whereas we offer one-on-one help. Second, we have designers, developers, and marketers here on staff to help you at every step of the way. Third, we don't take equity from you, which means you'll have a 'clean' cap table which investors will be proud of.

I already have some of this stuff done, can you still work with me?

Yes, as long as you haven't raised money in the past we can still help you reach your goal.

Why do you charge for the program instead of taking equity?

Two reasons. First, we don't take equity because we don't want to clutter up your cap table which can be a red flag to investors. Second, our team (and investors) want to know you have 'skin in the game' and are willing to invest in yourself; if you can't do that it's hard to convince an investor they should invest in you.

What do you look for in startups who apply to join Idea to Funded?

A successful startup is more about the founder than it is about the idea, so we mostly look for entrepreneurs who are hungry to build a successful company, have a proven track record of working hard to achieve goals, and are coachable.

Regarding your idea, as long as it's a tech startup (web or mobile application based) then we can help you. If you're building something that's hardware intensive, e-commerce, or local, then I2F isn't the right program for you.

Where is your team located?

Everyone on our team is located in our Charleston, South Carolina office.
