We provide coaching, capital and commercial support to the most promising, early-stage disruptive startups in The Netherlands.
Our approach leans heavily on deep expertise in the principles of disruption theory, which helps deliver more predictable startup success.
This is proving to be invaluable to venture teams, and offers uniquely attractive opportunities to our coalition of informal investors.

Our Focus

We focus exclusively on ventures in the 'first-round valley-of-death', where the need for our kind of help is most acute.

 

Our integrated coaching + capital approach allows us to provide must-have professional support on the principles and application of disruption theory (based on the legacy of the late Harvard Professor Clayton Christensen), plus sufficient first-round equity funding to reach profitable growth.
