During an introductory call you will be able to explain or pitch your business idea to our lead advisors who will in turn provide some preliminary thoughts and propose to you ways you can accelerate the success of your venture.

 

Who can pitch...

Our advisors are experienced and their time is valuable as much as everyone else’s. To ensure it is interesting for everyone we typically only accept pitch from startups who have a preliminary a track record of delivering preliminary results such as startups with one or all of the following:

  • Product mockups or prototype
  • Customer pre-orders or sales orders
  • Some funding (seed funding available, successful crowdfunding campaign, round A)

Testimonials

Startups Innovation improved both our final decision and the process…

As a startup in the medtech industry, given our product field, introducing the product first in Europe can be strategically and financially advantageous. If opportunities and parties align, even relocating the company to Europe can be very beneficial. This is a complex situation with unique startup and international dynamics. Innova found with Startups Innovation the experience and knowledge to identify and map multiple alternatives with the urgency that a startup requires. They evaluated several attractive options and recommended two optimal locations and partners. This saved Innova critical time and allowed Innova to focus on the deal, and not volumes of data and multiple contacts. Startups Innovation improved both our final decision and the process by which we arrived at that choice.
