Equal access to funding and opportunity for all founders is at the core of what we do

Bringing together people from different backgrounds is an important factor when finding exceptional individuals for our program. As a member of the recently launched #Fundright campaign, we have already reached a strong milestone by investing in 33% of companies that have at least one female co-founder, nearly meeting the 3 year benchmark.

  • Start date

    August 31, 2020

    The first phase of the program will run 11 weeks from August to November, and the second phase of the program will run another three months from November to February.

    COVID-19 Update: We fully plan to proceed with our third Amsterdam program start date of August 31.

    As a contingency, we are currently preparing to deliver our program completely online if necessary and completely expect to provide the same level of support, interaction and expertise remotely as we would in a face-to-face setting.

  • What you get

    Selected founders get a stipend of €2,500 per month the first two months.

    We invest €105,000 for a 10% equity stake in each company selected by our investment committee. For all companies we invest in, €45,000 is used to cover the program fees so you get €60,000 in the bank to start building the foundations of a great business.

    We then organize a demo day and additional fundraising events where your business will have the opportunity to pitch to hundreds of external investors for your seed funding round.
