We invest  100 000€ in equity in SAFE, for 7% stake in the company. Each entrepreneur will set-up a formal company early in the program.  We will convert the SAFE at subsequent round, and continue investing if relevant.

Each entrepreneur will : 

Build the start-up 

Define value proposition

Attract the best co-founders 

Prepare for a seed round

We are bringing equity but also our accumulated experience in selecting the best entrepreneurs and the best investment topics. We also share the valuable expertise of our Startup Success and the networks of our communities.
