Frequently asked questions

What kind of startup are you looking for?

We welcome anyone with a good idea. We prefer startups to which we can provide more than just a funding. We are part of the unique O2 ecosystem and we believe that those ideas, that this ecosystem can utilize and that can also benefit from possible synergies, should primarly get our help.

Do you accept startups in their early stage?

Yes. While we're trying to focus on startups that are already finalizing their product and are in the go-to-market stage, we are also open to discussion with startups that have a great idea and are starting to work on the product. Individual projects and possible cooperation are always evaluated individually.
