Vision

Why we should meet (or not)

We have experienced that many young companies need support in daily operations, in addition to a cash requirements.

We provide such support by means of a concrete contributions for the further development of the company. Think of assistance in areas such as strategy, sales and marketing focused on creating breakthroughs and continued growth. We also provide support in financial and legal issues and we offer support in attracting (additional) capital. Our approach therefore includes hours and cash. That is what makes a difference with other (seed capital) funds.

From our position we can often play an important role in the cooperation between shareholders and the management team. Our role as an ‘engaged shareholder’ also provides a form of (informal) supervision which other shareholders can benefit..
