Applyifi.com® is a private platform for startups to crate their profiles, which is accessible to multiple investors mentors or accelerators/incubators. On a selective basis, Applyifi may create a detailed scorecard for the startup. For this, the Applyifi team may call or meet the startup. The scorecard given by the
startup will be a subjective perspective of the Applyifi team, and the startup may or may not agree with the scoring. If a startup gets a scorecard, it will be available for registered investors mentors or accelerators/incubators to review, even if the startup does not agree with the scorecard. The startup however has the option of not displaying the profile and the scorecard, and in if the entrepreneur so chooses, the profile will not be displayed.

For investors, accelerators and incubators, Applyifi reviews applications and provides a scorecard. Users of this website may register as “startups”, “investors”, “accelerators”, “incubators”, or “mentors”.

    First we review your venture's investment and business readiness on 36 key parameters that investors assess your venture on.


    Based on which we provide actionable inputs to sharpen your business plans, refine your strategy and help improve the chances of success and fund raising.


    The Applyifi scorecard and assessment report is absolutely free.


    We first assess your venture's business and investment readiness using our proprietary Applyifi 36-point scorecard. Based on this, we bring experienced perspectives and actionable advice to help founders increase their chances of success.



    Our experts help you create a powerful pitch deck that will generate investor interest. 


    We also help founders practice their pitch to investors. (Often, even strong entrepreneurs with good ideas do not get a foot in the door or catch an investor's attention because they are not been able to present a compelling case to investors.)


    The Applyifi Fund Raising Assistance Program helps founders become better-prepared for fund raising.


    Once ready, we share your pitch deck with investors, including individual angel investors, angel investor groups and VCs. (We are connected to and respected by major angel investor groups and institutional investors across India).


    On ascertaining investor interest, we help founders in deal-closing, including valuations, term-sheet, deal-structuring, due-diligence and paperwork.



    Not just angels and VCs

    Angel investors and VCs are just one source of capital. We also help startups explore other options of capital like crowd-funding, strategic investors, venture debt (collateral-free loans), grants, structured F&F rounds and funding from Accelerators & Incubators.



    For Fund Raising via our investor connects, we charge 2.5% of the amount raised by us for your venture + a nominal processing fee.
