beGLOBAL Founders Club FAQs
Who is beSUCCESS? beSUCCESS is founded by James Jung back in 2010 with a single mission: to offer high quality connections with international investors and partners to local startups and entrepreneurs who were priced out of a broken international expansion industry.
Why are there only long term strategies? International expansion (fund-raising, pr/marketing) is not a quick fix. Therefore, you need long term thinking and planning if you want to see results that last. Take it from us, you can’t make friends with the investors overnight!
Does it cost money to participate in the Founders Club Program? Yes – We charge $10,000 per company to participate for one year, These program fees help to cover basic costs of running the Founders Club Program, paying outside speakers, mentors, various partners and should be viewed like tuition.
What size should my business be before joining in Founders Club? It’s never too early to invest in international expansion (fund-raising, pr/marketing)! In fact, we’ve found that startups’ internaional expansion is easier to mold than more established businesses. Furthermore, if you’re a larger company, we can come in and identify international expansion tactics to take you to the next level.
Are you looking for a particular stage company? We have no specific stage requirements, but most companies will have assembled a team and developed an initial product. Many have early customers and revenue. We don’t reject companies just for being earlier than that, but we need to see the team has made a real commitment to the company and a clear vision for its future.
What types of companies can apply? Founder Club companies are technology companies, or companies with a significant technology component, since those are the companies we can help the most. We look for companies best able to take full advantage of the Silicon Valley and Seoul opportunity as a starting point to successfully enter the market for their product, service or application. Most Founder Club companies will be software or software-related in some way, and may be either B-to-B or B-to-C-focused. Our interests are as diverse as your ideas: Internet, Mobile, FinTech, SaaS, E-Commerce, Local, Media, Marketing, Ad Tech, Education, Fashion Tech, Real Estate, Logistics and many more.
Will I get investment during this program? We’ve created a network of stellar investors, both angels and VCs. You’ll have a chance to interact with many of these individuals during the program; we’ll connect you to the investors most appropriate for your company. On Demo Day, you get the opportunity to present your company to qualified investors, angels, super-angels and VCs. We can’t guarantee you’ll raise money, of course, but we can tell you that investors who are looking for the most promising new startups in Silicon Valley and Seoul will hear your pitch.
The membership service will be valid for one year. After the registration is successful, we will review it within 7 working days and our team will contact you. (* You can also Book A Call with James directly via here for further questions or send email to “firstname.lastname@example.org”)
