The good grow focus



The climate start-ups we can best support (apart from money) are those with a high proportion of software, as this has been our focus in the past. However, we may also be a good fit if you are developing a combined or pure hardware product or service, especially if you need support in building your organizational structure, storytelling and fundraising.

climate change



Many years of experience in eCommerce have taught us the importance of making better use of (limited) resources. We love startups that want to make better use of material and immaterial resources and address large markets (or believe that new large markets will emerge in the long term).

resource efficiency



Our years in e-commerce have sometimes led to too many unnecessary products being sold. That's why we are personally committed to supporting startups that are dedicated to eliminating waste. We can best help software-heavy startups, but we are not afraid to learn (and get to know each other) if you have little or no software focus.

waste prevention
