from entry to exit

The investment process in brief

Investment project submission

Let us know about your idea and present its core assumptions. Send an email, use the form on our website or arrange a meeting with us.

Initial verification of the presented project

Based on our experience, we will make an internal, quick assessment of the project's compliance with our investment strategy. If something needs to be clarified - we will contact you immediately.

Preparation of a plan for the proof-of-principle phase

During meetings and in cooperation with selected experts, we will refine the business model and assess the investment attractiveness of the venture. We will also select the proof-of-principle activities aimed to confirm the assumptions underlying the project and reduce the investment risk. At this stage, we will use such methods as Business Model Canvas, Design Thinking, or prototyping.

Defining the scope of cooperation in the form of term sheet

In this agreed list of terms, we will specify the scope of financed activities, milestones, distribution of shares in the company.

Performing proof-of-principle activities

Following joint activities such as market, product and legal analyses, an investment agreement based on their results will be prepared.

Investment entry

Our fund will take equity stake in an existing or newly established company and will transfer the agreed funding in tranches to perform the proof-of-concept activities.

Business support

Representatives of our fund will be involved in the company's activities not only with the aim to achieve the agreed goals, but more broadly - to build value of the business by attracting the most promising partners and investors.

Investment exit

Once the obligations under the investment agreement are fulfilled, the time will come to sell our equity to a selected investor, who will be able to provide the company or its technology with further support.
