Product

Without a working (or at least highly promising) product there is no startup. End of discussion.

Early-stage

Our goal is to have the biggest impact possible. That often means helping a young founder make that very first leap.

Traction

Building a product is easy. Solving someone’s problem and proving that it actually works is the real challenge.

Giving back

We always ask whether this solution is making the world a better place. The answer has to be a solid yes!

PERSONAL INTROS TO ACCELERATORS & INVESTORS

The success of a startup is in direct correlation with the founders’ ability to connect and create networks. High-quality intros make this task much easier.

HANDS-ON FUNDRAISING ADVICE

It might sound ironic, but having money might be as big a problem as not having it. Smart moves early on ensure the smoothest path possible for growth in the future.

PRODUCT & GO-to-market advice

There is no reason to invent a bicyle. While the problems your startup faces might seem unique (and in many ways they are), tapping into the experience of others prevents you from making unnecessary mistakes.
