We go beyond accelerating startups

We provide the knowledge and experience
to turn startups into true companies

Mentorship

As experienced entrepreneurs, we are convinced it is our duty to help the newer generations. But we believe that finding new talent is no easy task. That is why we came up with a new phase in our acceleration process. Before taking any equity from the Startups we incubate, we get involved in the project’s every day life; we introduce the founders with great potential clients and we setup product trials with our partner companies. This way we can evaluate each Startup’s potential, and the entrepreneurs can get to know us and the way we work before we sign any kind of agreement.

Advisement

Creating profitable companies is a mix of opportunity and hard work. Once we've determined a Startup has great potential and that we can help its founders grow their business, we begin with the Advising. We commit ourselves 100% to the projects and introduce each team to the right clients and partners and aim to monetize them fast, hence accelerating growth. We help define the right business model for each Startup and work alongside each team to understand their company’s true financial needs to pave the way towards an investment.

Investment

After a Startup is monetizing, finding the right investor is only a matter of time. Once we understand what each project needs in order to go after an investment and increase its growth even further, we define together the right investment strategy and lead the capital raising process. We accompany each investment and search for investors who can provide more than just capital, but also their time, contacts and expertise to the Startup. We believe this is the best way to look after the team’s investment, and our own.

Our Funds and Programs

Our experience in designing and running multiple innovation projects and building startups programs for corporates has shaped our approach. We start with an innovation capability scan or assessment to define your innovation readiness and maturity. Next to this capability audit, we offer inspiration in the form of benchmarks on how to structure an innovation capability (central vs. decentralized, funding mechanisms, scalability options, etc).
