Drive-Thru your Fundraising with our fast track Seed Fund!
We don't keep the innovation waiting!
Speed of Execution
We all know what all the evidence supports - timing is the most essential factor in ensuring the success of a startup. However, it is a rule that is hard to live by, when you are dragged through months and months-long investment process instead of building your company. And after all that time, you may find yourself stuck with bad conditions which have killed many aspiring projects.
We have seen too many toxic term sheets in our region and we had to watch too many good startups bleed out waiting for the fundraising process to be closed.
We say a loud NO to this approach and operate according to our Founder-friendly term sheets. We are investors, not bureaucrats, so we act fast!
Whether it's deep science, ICT or any kind of innovation, whether you are seeking smart capital with added value or you simply need funds and be left alone.
If you are truly willing to work hard and by fair means, we offer you a partnership that will work for you.
