How we operate
MEDKAP is a non-profit association and does not invest itself. We connect startups and investors.
Investors must be members of the association and comply with our Code of Conduct. For each funding round we have a dedicated deal manager who represents the interests of the investors on your cap table and manages the syndicate. We do not require board seats, but in certain cases the expertise of our members may be beneficial. We do not expect liquidation preferences of more than one, and expect your other investors to not seek higher liquidation preferences.
