Behind the scenes

Welcome! One more step awaits before you can receive our unique insights. “Behind the Scenes” has been created with founders and future founders in mind, in order to talk with you about VC. We want to tell you about our decision making processes, things which matter most when we seek new investments and ways of working with investors.

All our insights are based on 30 years’ of experience in setting up companies. We will do our best to deliver to your mailboxes fortnightly newsletters featuring unique advice which cannot be found anywhere else on the internet.

Why do we contact startups numerous times?

A founder approaches a VC, who arranges a meeting… then another and another and still they keep asking for more data. Sounds familiar? Are we causing you frustrating?

An Arab proverb suggests the greatest wisdom comes from knowing oneself, and though this may sounds like a hollow truism, in the world of business it makes perfect sense – especially when we think about our role in a startup which is being established or already exists.
