We have been in contact with the High-Tech Gründerfonds for quite some time now. Since the beginning of this year we were working on the investment quite intensively. Some days ago we were able to sign the contracts and start with a kick-off meeting in our office. Judging from the negotiations and the kick-off meeting we have a very positive feeling with our investor and are looking forward to our cooperation.
One part of the investment is the contract of a coach who accompanies us founders. Again, our first impression is excellent, having a coach who is able to push our company into the right direction. We are eager to take the next steps together!
