CEO Scouts

We have carefully selected some well-known entrepreneurs to participate in our program. They will be able to deploy a certain amount of money to invest in pre-seed companies within their network and usually in their sector of expertise. By joining our program they will be able to mentor and support new CEOs by sharing their experience.
