Startup Selection Process

These are our criteria and this is how we work

Our Dealflow

The majority of our startups come to us through our network. Many startups also actively apply on our homepage or through other channels. We look at 1000-1500 start-ups per year and only 1%-2% make it through our strict selection process.

Internal Review

We look at the start-up in different levels of detail in terms of business model, product, team and legal framework.

External Expert Network

A particularly important role plays the feedback from our external network of experts, which we call in depending on the industry and technology. This enables us to guarantee the greatest utmost possible objectivity.
