Build and grow your startup with Stryber
We grow businesses & products that people use and love
Find a promising venture idea with us within one of our Investment theses as Entrepreneur-in-residence.
Once the idea is validated and has first traction, we carve it out into a separate legal entity and you join as co-founder in a CxO role.
Join as co-founder for one of our portfolio companies.
We ensure we build together a cohesive founder team that is needed for the specific venture and that investors are looking for.
Join our BOOST program
If you are already an existing founder (team) / pre-seed startup with a promising idea, join forces with us to accelerate your startup towards the next funding round.

Join forces with Stryber
We address typical starting problems of (first-time) founders:
no idea, no team, no money, no experience, no network
- IDEA We find an attractive unicorn idea (= big market!), build a first product version and validate the idea in a structured way with real transactions, plus the idea becomes fundable.
- SPEED Our highly professional and experienced in-house team of Venture Architects, Product Owners, Growth Marketers, UX/UI Wizards and Engineers tests hypotheses, gets transactions and achieves significant traction and thus fundability super-fast (= time savings of 12+ months compared to independent founders).
- TEAM We build a kick-ass founders team based on our learnings what skills and experience the exact topic needs and whose individuals complement each other perfectly.
- MONEY We are a founder-friendly company builder who is convinced that an attractive equity package (up to 75% for the founders + ESOP) is needed to ensure long-term incentivisation and fundability. We are Rocket 2.0!
Besides, we cover the starting costs (pre-seed + some cash runway towards seed funding) and enable a small base salary for our founders (= huge cost savings and peace of mind compared to independent founders).

- INVESTORS We help our startups to get in touch with the right seed investors (and we are already one of them!).
- MENTORING One of our experienced senior partners joins the startup board and acts as mentor to advice on things like strategy, team, fundraising and operational topics (OKRs, culture deck, hiring, performance management, etc.).
