WHAT IS INNOVESTOR PALO?

A successful startup team needs three things to live true it’s world-changing idea:

1. Top mentor contacts
2. Hands-on funding partners
3. Customer contacts


That’s why we have launched PALO, a program for the most promising idea/pre-seed stage sustainable tech founder teams.

We light your way

WHAT MAKES US UNIQUE?

We will choose 10 idea/pre-seed stage teams for the program and work intensively with them for 12 weeks. You will not work only with us but with chosen top-notch mentors and the most valuable corporate partners, bringing their know-how and much-needed resources to the table. On top of that, the selected 10 companies will each receive a €50 000 investment. Three months of work will culminate on Demo Day, where you will be pitching your idea to a group of investors.

Yet, our journey together will not end on Demo Day: we will follow up on your progress in Q1 /2023, helping you push forward your roadmap for success. If you are an idea/pre-seed stage founder building a sustainable tech company, we would love to hear from you.

Applications will be accepted until 22nd of June. The program will kick off on 6th of October 2022.
