„From my perspective, FTTFs deep-tech expertise combined with an hands-on attitude makes the FTTF the ideal partner for an early-stage startup such as us. I am, therefore, very much looking forward to intensify our relationship.“
„I am very happy to have FTTF as our investors right since start of our journey. They have been always accessible as a partner and were instrumental in finding the right follow-on investor.“
„FTTF has been a fantastic fit for us, when starting our business. We were a small team that had just developed a software in a research environment. FTTF helped us to develop our business model and close a Seed round with additional investors, scaling up our business significantly within the first 24 months.“
„FTTF has been at our side as a reliable partner since our foundation and a short time later also as an investor. Thanks to the fast and straightforward pre-seed financing, we were able to focus 100% on our product and expand our team, thereby acquiring significant customers.“
