As Startup Supporter, we address outstanding founders of technology based startup companies with high growth potential. We acknowledge our support role as helping towards:
- building of the company
- developing the strategy
We focus primarily on founders in the cleantech sectors, such as mobility, proptech, energy, smart city, circular economy etc. These are the sectors in which we see the greatest challenges and the greatest opportunities. Ultimately, it is about how we use digitization to improve resource efficiency; we call this “digital cleantech”.
The set-up of a company is only a means to an end, never an end in itself. In an ideal case, founding a company starts with an idea how to do something in a better way – it is about the “reason why”. Thus, the focus lies on the product, and it is the founder who must be the product expert.
However, to set up a company and to make it successful, it is not just about being a product expert. This is where we enter into the picture.
How do we work?
We can help you build your company on solid ground right from the start. We can support you and teach you the craft of company building. But it’s your company…and you are the ultimate decision maker.
The situation is quite similar to professional sports. Every athlete always has a personal coach to push him to explore his full potential. In contrast, founders have to bear the pain on their own. Rarely do they have a long-term partner to bounce their ideas off and coach them through this challenging process.
“A man must know what he wants and what he can do: For then he will show character and be able to create something of value.”
