our mission

Our mission is to build the next generation of emerging market startups that compete globally and inspire future founders to do the same.
We know all founders, regardless of experience need support, particularly when they get started. By helping founders tap the resources they need they can more rapidly exploit their time and opportunities.
Our sole purposes is accelerating growth and investment potential Round to Round to exit.

who we work with


    We only work with startups pre-institutional funding. The early days are our niche whre we can add the most value.


    No, seriously. We have a high bar. You need to be thick-skinned to take critical feedback and work like a hustling beast.


    Emerging markets are less supported but talent abounds. It’s also where our network is strongest. But, if your model is scalable (SaaS, marketplace etc) we don’t care if you are based in London or Palo Alto etc.


    Our focus is on scalable, technology enabling companies (i.e. SaaS, Marketplace) or disruptive (crazy shit). We LOVE hard stuff like biotech and fintech which can impact peoples’ lives

Be based anywhere; we work with you remotely

We believe great companies are like ‘weeds‘; born everywhere, and thrive irrespective of their environment. We love founders that don’t need to be babysat.
50Folds supports founders wherever they choose to be based remotely, and with our network on the ground if possible.

Our Core Values

Get smarter everyday

You are only as good as what, how and who you know. We pride ourselves on keeping on top of the trends and times and getting smarter, every, single day. We ask dumb questions as you can only be dumb once.

keep your eye on the prize

Get shit done. Stop thinking, start doing. We want the desired result as efficiently and in a short a time period as possible.

honestly and no bulls**t

We care about results, not talk. If you can’t do it, say so. If you need help, ask. If things don’t make sense, we call bullshit. The best idea wins.

We appreciate the struggle, so make life more effective not detractive.

We Have Fun

Life is too short to work with people we don’t like. The culture of startups is critical, so we operate a no asshole rule.

The results matter as priority, but the journey matters too.
