Our end-to-end corporate venture building journey

Discovery

Identifying inside gaps and outside trends we are able to explore new business op-portunities and qualify the right ventures to exploit first. Getting out of the building and engaging with customers we quickly validate the problem-solution fit with our iterative design thinking approach.

Incubation

Market validation is always our first obsession, building the first prototype to bring paying customers in the first months is our credo. Together with recruiting the entrepreneurial A-Team to make it a success.

Acceleration

Moving the needle by scaling up the execution : deploying first MVP’s, setting up the operations and boosting the sales & marketing. Expanding the paid customer base and driving the key metrics to achieve the MVB (Minimum  Viable Business).

Transfer

Shaping the best legal, organisational and financial structure for the new venture. Organising the transition toward the target corporate vehicle. Transitioning the sales pipe, operation and IP.

Our philosophy

We have learned - sometimes the hard way- that successful startups require the entrepreneurial squad to combine and master 3 key dimensions. That’s why we always inject the Market, Product & Talent ingredients into each venture we build. And we make sure to do it from Day 1.
