YOUR STARTUP

OUR STARTUP-STUDIO WHERE WE INVEST, CO-FOUND AND INCUBATE STARTUPS
In our Garage we help founders to transform their idea into a great Startup. We are a “one-stop-shop” Startup Studio, where we offer investment, mentoring, end-to-end software development and marketing assistance to startups and early stage companies.

welcome in our garage,
the best place to launch Grow and Scale your startup

Do you have a Startup in mind? Have you already launched it and want to make it grow? Let your startup born , grow and scale in a Start-up Studio .Recent international data indicate that Startups born in a Studio such as FoolFarm have + 70% probability of success (compared to 10/15% of a traditional accelerator or incubator) and financing and exit times reduced by up to 50% . 

 

This is because the Startup was born in a controlled environment, supported by the know-how of a multidisciplinary team that has successful exits behind it and having immediately available financial and technological resources. The difference is that a Startup Studio does not behave as a simple investor, but as a partner of the Startup and has a hands-on approach.
