Peter and Heiner sweating for equity
Welcome to the September issue of The Stakeholder from Katalysen and our life as a Long Term Venture Partner. We would like to highlight VenturePort which is an exclusive digital platform for Katalysen’s network of companies, their shareholders and selected investors. VenturePort will make us a better Venture Partner. Participating companies, their shareholders and selected investors will be better equipped with Ventureport to accomplish their main objectives.
Thanks to the Auga tech team and our partnership Fleet St. Technologies AB this is now happening!
As you will see, we are also growing in our new office. It really makes us happy that we attract so good people, companies and partners. It is now obvious that we are at the right place and time with our Venture Partner company. This is only the beginning, but we will always have to sweat to earn our equity.
