FasterCapital is a new type of incubator. The founders remarked that there are several weaknesses in incubators worldwide. These weaknesses are leaving an important segment of entrepreneurs with no help. It is also affecting the success rate of startups as many don't raise enough money at the right time which is a major cause for failure.
