We are an investment and consulting firm. We take care of the growth of high potential startups and innovative SMEs in the commercial area and within marketplaces.
We assist startuppers and teams in the pre-seed stage. The idea must be original and offer a new (creative) way of proposing a product / service or in resolving a customer problem.
We have a different approach from many other companies in our sector, and will intervene financially in a much earlier stage.
