We’re on your team

Before we invest

  • We do receive a huge number of opportunities so finding a warm intro will go a long way in getting our attention.
  • We are united: all four partners need to be convinced to work with you.
  • In general, we are not fans of convertible notes / SAFEs as a first investment.

When you’ve joined the family

Operations

  • Open communication: we’re on your team. We expect mutual candour and radical openness.
  • We work with you and don’t interfere or intrude, it’s your company. We want to know what your challenges are and how we can help.
  • You tap into our network for expertise, introduction to potential strategic partners and identifying and gaining access to the right customers
  • You use us as a sounding board for your strategy, competitive positioning, target market definition, product scoping. We help you focus on what matters.
  • We do not take board seats early.
  • Due to our fund size, we cannot reinvest in all companies in our seed pool.

Talent hiring

Because success is a question of people and because finding the best talent is so hard, founders can drown in the task, especially when the company needs to scale fast. Together with our network of experts, we are there to help design your HR strategy, define the right recruiting profiles and open our recruitment capabilities.

Fund raising

Raising money is an important part of a startup’s activities and also a disruptive one for the entrepreneur. That’s why it is crucial to be very structured and to have a swift and effective process. Our team has seen tens of thousands of decks and can help make yours stand out and address the points that matter to VCs, accessing the Expon Angels network, Strategic Advisors, potential investors and acquirers

Analysis

Founders often wish to enhance their administrative, accounting, legal and technological capabilities. In those moments, you need a partner that can provide solutions and avoid wasting your time researching who’s the best provider for your needs. When needed, we can provide the tools for entrepreneurs to measure, understand, and report the performance of their early-stage company.

Going global

International expansion is a key, difficult, step towards achieving global domination. Most books display theoretical frameworks that are useless in practice. We have partnered with a highly successful executive who, over decades taking companies global, has shaped a clear and structured approach to help our portfolio companies design, manage and execute their international GTM plans. This invaluable expertise is part of what we bring.

ExO Genes – Speed & Scale

Our role is to identify the exponential genes in your firm and implement those that are missing and unleash your potential to speed and scale. See Exponential Strategy for more.
