Tecnet Venture Capital now offers SAFE, the Simple Agreement for Future Equity, a rapid and straightforward financing solution for startups directly after their establishment, serving as a precursor to traditional venture capital funding.
This convertible loan of €50,000 specifically targets startups at a very early stage, even before their first seed round, with fixed terms and conditions.
A SAFE is eligible for startups that:
Have a working prototype or proof-of-concept.
Have a clear vision for market entry and product adoption strategy.
Have a scalable business model with the potential for significant growth, even if their business plan is not fully developed.
With SAFE, tecnet caters specifically to young technology companies seeking to establish or have already been founded in Lower Austria.
Every successful endeavor begins with a groundbreaking business idea, an innovation or technology that can be effectively communicated through a well-structured plan. Based on your business plan, we will carefully review it with the tecnet team. Our extensive experience will guide you, as we collaborate with you from the initial personal encounter to identify the opportunities and potential of your project.
In the next phase, tecnet embarks on a comprehensive preliminary assessment, scrutinizing your project's details. If a viable scalable business model emerges, the management is confident, and consensus is achieved on the economic parameters of the envisioned collaboration, tecnet will formally express its intent through a term sheet.
After thorough evaluation, if the project demonstrates a viable scalable business model and the management is confident, tecnet will formally express its intent through a term sheet, marking the initiation of a fruitful partnership.
This partnership paves the way for your company's sustainable and profitable growth. Additionally, our investment managers actively support your company's success with their expertise, extensive network, and strategic insights.
Typically, after an investment period of up to eight years – the duration depends on the company's development and the economic climate – tecnet will seek an exit opportunity. This involves selling the shares held by venture capital investors to a strategic partner ("Trade Sale"), another financial investor ("Secondary Sale"), or through an initial public offering (IPO).
With its extensive experience spanning over two decades, tecnet Venture Capital has established itself as one of Austria's most accomplished venture capital investors.
