The knowledge platform for the entire start-up ecosystem
Benefit from High-Tech Gründerfonds’ many years of experience: In seminars and training sessions, the HTGF Academy teaches you everything you need to know about founding companies, venture capital and innovation.
How do I achieve product-market fit? What do I need to pay attention to when growing my business? How do I organize remote work and team structure? What legal aspects do I have to consider when it comes to exits or data protection? How do I work together with start-ups as a corporate? For more than 16 years, we have been dealing with these and many other questions at HTGF, advising start-ups and building bridges between start-ups, SMEs and corporations. Now, we are sharing this knowledge through our HTGF Academy.
The HTGF Academy addresses the following target groups, offering exclusive access to relevant workshops and online sessions:
- HTGF portfolio companies
- HTGF fund investors
In addition, the HTGF Academy offers many open formats to all interested parties from the start-up and venture capital ecosystem:
- Start-ups and those interested in setting up their own business
- Corporations and medium-sized businesses
- Network partners
Our goal is to promote the exchange of experiences between start-ups in different phases, investors and established companies on an equal footing to ensure both the transfer of knowledge and further cooperation opportunities.
Many years of experience and a broad network of experts
HTGF’s vast network of experts – including many coaches, trainers, consultants and entrepreneurs – offers participants a diverse range of valuable learning content. Leadership, diversity, human resources, sales, marketing, business development, finance and law are just some of the topics on the agenda. Our investment managers share their vast knowledge and wealth of experience on the most important start-up issues. We’re also really pleased that successful founders from our portfolio are able to pass on their knowledge to other start-ups and reveal how they successfully overcame their challenges.
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.CEO and Founder instagrid GmbH
