Why giving away equity is actually a great idea
There’s several organisations, which basically promise you to become the next unicorn easily with their support, but everyone knows, there’s no free meals, so there has to be a catch, right?
Tehnopol Startup Incubator and VNTRS joined their forces to give you an overview of different support systems and their conditions.
- What is Sweat Equity and how you can benefit from it?
- Pros and cons of choosing an equity model
- Does it make getting an investment harder or easier?
Join the free webinar on May 5th at 16.00 and get to know all about what’s behind the support systems, which help your startup get investor-ready and achieve critical milestones.
VNTRS is originally a Swedish-based startup studio and a VC fund, working mostly with the Sweat Equity model. VNTRS has invested using the Sweat Equity model in 22 startups throughout almost five years of operations, having several successful exits while other companies grow as we speak. In 2021 VNTRS is closing the first round of a fund to be able to make follow-up cash investments as well. From the 1st of January, VNTRS has opened up the Estonian and Baltic region at large for operations.
Tehnopol Startup Incubator is the biggest business Incubator in Estonia, which has helped its startups to gain 23M in early-stage investments. 320+ startups have finished their early-stage growth program and 60% of them are still successful and growing. This year we launched investment company Tehnopol Ventures, which will assess the investment readiness and manage Startup Incubator’s equity options and holdings in startups. In the future, the fund will also start making financial investments.
