To navigate the challenges of tomorrow, we are developing our companies into a network with its own creative workspace. In our Fintech Lab, each start-up receives help with central support functions and services such as accounting and finance, recruiting & HR, sales & marketing services and tax & legal advice. Our start-ups also benefit from our network and information sharing.
They learn from each other while also benefiting from access to a creative nexus that helps improve products, processes and access to markets.
For young start-ups, learning not only from each other but successful entrepreneurs and experienced managers is key. Our mentors support our start-up teams both in substantive topics, such as mapping out strategic direction, as well as personal mentoring.
Our mentoring program is extended to all our founders. Our startups not only have their own mentors, but have many opportunities to network with other mentors.
No matter what kind of financing you are looking for, from equity financing to debt issue, finding funding is an essential part of starting a new company. We support our start-ups by giving them pre-seed funding. However we also advise them for the next rounds of financing they need to obtain.
We expose our young companies to institutional contacts and private investors for this reason. In addition, our start-ups receive regular pitch training, independent company reviews and additional assistance in finding new sources of funding they need to grow to the next step.
