To become your Venture Client, we expect your startup to fulfill the following basic criteria:

Startup type

Your startup has a scalable business model, based on wholly owned intellectual property. Startups offering consulting or engineering service do not fall within our scope.

Startup stage

Your startup is a legal entity with the majority of shares owned by the individual founders and venture capitalists. No single company controls your startup. Your solution does not have to be tried and tested yet, but you have a functional prototype for testing.

Funding stage

Your startup at least has seed funding from a professional investor. This could be a venture capital investor or an equity-based accelerator.
