The HTGF Academy

We listen when founders talk to us. We’ve noticed that they always come to us with the same questions. This is why we founded the HTGF Academy at the beginning of 2019. It is aimed exclusively at our portfolio companies and is tailored precisely to their needs.

The Academy covers a wide range of topics, from leadership to human resources, sales, marketing, business development, finance and legal. All speakers have start-up experience. In addition, we are pleased that successful founders also pass on their knowledge to other start-ups.

In the first year of the Academy’s existence, over 220 participants took advantage of its support services.

Coming from a large corporation, I strongly value continuous development processes. The HTGF Academy implements this in high quality and focuses on the topics of young companies in an ideal way.

Two years after the market launch, the ‘Pricing Excellence’ workshop came at the right time for us to review our pricing model and take the next steps based on profound information.

Further Development Opportunities for Start-ups

Our goal is to provide our portfolio companies with the best possible support on their path to success. This includes transferring know-how. With the Academy, we have created an institution that offers them real added value. In addition, the Academy provides a further opportunity to strengthen valuable dialogue between our portfolio companies on an equal footing. They form a network that is unique in its cross-industry and cross-phase form.
