UnCap is taking investing into early-stage entrepreneurs to a completely new level and scale. Using automated screening supported by robust psychometric tests and additional evaluation methods, this dynamic FinTech start-up has the potential to revolutionise investing especially in emerging and developing economies, empowering and unleashing local entrepreneurship and economic development in those regions.
I love Uncap for its completely new investing approach for the sub-Sahara region. It has become almost an investing factory with standardized, risk-reducing processes. The Uncap way has led to a dramatic decrease in overhead costs compared to the traditional early stage fonds.
Uncap is approaching a unique problem (underfunding of entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa) in a deep-tech enabled solution that allows for unbiased investment decisions. I'm impressed by their integration of AI, behavior analysis, Fintech-tools and investment frameworks to solve a very real-life problem. They are trailblazers in their field trying to prove a thesis that many are too afraid to test. Their first cohort of entrepreneurs seems to be performing well which gives the team high momentum to build upon that. Finally, Franziska is an ambitious CEO who works hard to build a culture that allows for inclusion and scalability. More power to Uncap :-) !
