We constantly run experiments with founders. These are the startups that have moved beyond R&D and into the market.
Each startup is unique. Typically, we take minority stakes (5-15%). In the beginning, we evaluate our founder fit and the business plan. We align on what kind of the startup this will be: an all-or-nothing Product-Market-Fit (PMF) VC-backed business, or a sustainable long-term and profit-first business. This decision will drive the strategy, financing and organizational vision. From there, we build the company hand in hand. Usually our role is focused on product and tech. Sometimes we also sit on the board, guide the go-to-market, secure key team members, or support with funding. We have no venture fund and are independent. This allows us to think long-term as partners and align ourselves to the founders.
These are some of our previous companies. We either exited, discontinued or sold off our stakes in these companies.
We constantly run experiments with founders. These are some of the R&D projects that were not commercialized.
