“I’m excited about this partnership,” said Michael Gavrilov, Fantasy Invest CEO and founder. “There are more than 90 million future investors in the U.S. The opportunity is huge.

Investors studied 150 projects that were pitching at EMERGE. Angel Band members interviewed more than 40 and selected eight startups for the shortlist. As a result, Angel Band has signed a term sheet with Fantasy Invest.
“It was an unusual experience,” said Kirill Golub, the spokesman for Angel Band. “In two weeks, we had to study one and a half hundred applications. Then we needed to quickly evaluate the products, the stage of development, and the teams of these startups—all this without the possibility of a personal meeting. Congratulations to Mikhail Gavrilov and the Fantasy Invest team!”Kirill Golub
