OUR METHOD

BE FOOL is our exclusive venture building method

We strongly believe that success for a startup is not reached by chance or luck, but is the result of expertise, methodology and resources. Foolfarm invented BeFOOL, a venture building proprietary method, which turns a startup idea into a successful business like no others designed to reduce the risk of startup failure, and to enhance the quality of the startups produced.

OUR VENTURE BUILDING PHASES

ideation & selection

In our laboratories we are constantly developing new algorithms, prototypes and patents. Around the best we create new concepts and business ideas, we analyze the market and new trends. In the end we choose the best idea around which to build a new Startup.

DEVELOPMENT & investment

We create a dedicated team and in a maximum of three / four months we build a company from scratch: from the mockup to the business plan, from the customer experience to the market strategy. We select a Virtual Ceo who will accompany the Startup until Investor Day.

BUILD & traction

Once the first funds have been collected, we create a team that works alongside the Virtual Ceo as if it were the Startup team. We develop the MVP and we begin to evangelize the market by leveraging our super network based on our Community The Fooler Club and on the Spark business unit which proposes the Startup on large companies to develop the first POCs. In this phase which lasts 12 months, the Startup will have to demonstrate traction and complete the product to present itself to a new Investor Day.

growth & Scale

As the business develops we provide formal support from our Venture Builder Services and Investment teams to help the company with core functions, strategic advice and funding support, including access to our base of international investors up to accompanying it to Round A where FoolFarm usually reduces its minority stake or aims to exit.
