A Global Play

Our mission is to find the overlooked founders in new & exciting places. No country or founder too small.

“Being challenged by my mentors was invaluable. That’s how you get good at this whole startup thing.”

Nick Willis
Founder, Fairytales

"All the topics touched were super useful. We literally understood how a real business should work and how a team should work."

Natalya Koval
Founder, Fairytales

"The program was tough to handle on top of an already filled business schedule, but it shed an important light on matters that can be easily overlooked in an up and running business, such as an intense focus on product market fit and execution shortcomings in the strategy."


What makes us different?

​​International investment

We believe in founders usually before they believe in themselves and are the first legit international check that also gives faster & easier access to future fundraising internationally. We are in!

Vertical focus

Our 10+ year experience has proved that startups need tailored and specific support – our vertical focused programs help to scale and achieve exponential MRR growth. Your success, our knowledge.

Thriving community

We nurture an active and collaborative peer community on 5 continents, as well as large mentor and investor network. And value also a little bit of fun beyond just business. Be it dancing, sauna or cooking together.


Your success is our success

Our founders go onto big things. Our Portfolio has had 15 exits. In 2016 we saw our first major exit when VitalFields was acquired by the Climate Corporation. Things have snowballed since then…  In 2019, StepShot was acquired by UiPath and in 2021 we celebrated Pinterest’s acquisition of VOCHI.

Apace with our exit success, many of our startups are steadily and sustainably growing with MRR above 100K such as EstateGuru, CallPage, Ondato, Fractory, and Katana.

Dive in today and browse our range of programs that can launch your startup into the next dimension and bring your vision to life.
