entrepreneurial potential

We are now accepting applications from early-stage founders for our 2022 investment cohort. Applications close on 16th September.

A new way of early-stage funding

We are creating a new approach to funding early-stage entrepreneurs, using a remote, data-driven, and largely automated investment selection process. Our solution measures entrepreneurial potential through a series of tests that evaluate skills & behaviors correlated with entrepreneurial success. We conduct our evaluation and due diligence remotely then invest in successful applicants through a standardized revenue-sharing model. This highly automated approach allows us to provide funding to thousands of entrepreneurs.

Success stories

"

Uncap has gone beyond an investor and has introduced us to their extended network and even nominated us to other programs that have been greatly beneficial to Kazi. Our cohort of investees has a group where we share wins and losses, share opportunities, and cheer each other on. This comradery is a benefit of being a part of Uncap, extras to being an investee that is invaluable.

Uncap was our first institutional investment which came at the right time, at the beginning of the pandemic. It really helped us in our product development, which thankfully, we were able to refine & improve.
