Connector for Investors


How it looks like

The Connector consists of both companies and investors that are actively looking to build long-term relationships and expand their network. They are working on or investing in technologies with the strong belief that this will positively impact the world of tomorrow and that by working together they can build the future.

Our members have a collaborative, founder-first approach, demonstrating integrity and supportive mindset in their way of working. We refer to our investor pledge on how we like to work with investors.
