Why you should join us.

The all-in-one startup ecosystem

Whether you are looking to pilot your product, scale your business, hire new talent, or secure a round of investment, we provide the platform to make those goals a reality. This is the all-in-one startup ecosystem.

From MVP to POC

We organise private one-on-one meetings with top executives from the largest corporations in the world so that you can negotiate pilots and sell your product rapidly and efficiently. Don’t waste your time talking to the wrong people!

From POC to Industrialisation

We hate POC bulimia and discussions leading nowhere. We work hard for your successful pilots to scale to other verticals and convert into sales. Fight corporate tourism!

Fundraising, Recruiting and More

Seasoned entrepreneurs, investors and experts are here to help you grow your business faster. Are you raising funds? We’ll schedule meetings with 20 top European VCs. Looking to hire a dev?
