Why Was Monaco Foundry Created?
Most startups fail due to a lack of funding, so we created a platform to match investors and founders based on a widely accepted benchmark of investment readiness.
The aim is to increase trust and improve the success rate of early-stage startups. By leveraging data and the Monaco Foundry Trust Score, we ensure high quality founders find high quality investors and have the infrastructure to streamline the investment process.
