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.

    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 where your business will have the opportunity to pitch to up to 500 external investors for your seed funding round.
