Does FASTTRACK take equity from startups?

Simple answer - no.

Do I have to move to the premises of a chosen partner?

No, but if you wish the possibility exists to occupy office space or premises at the partner. The miminum requirement is however,that you attend the compulsory events and that you are onsite as often as your project requires to ensure its success.

How does the collaboration in the project phase work?

Initially, the project is jointly defined between yourself and the selected partner. A project plan with milestones and desireddeliverables is then agreed upon. A responsible person from your side and the partner will be defined. In addition to this,a mentor from the operative unit, in which the project will take place, will be assigned to you to facilitate the contactbetween you and the other specialists in the business unit to aid in the successful execution of the project.

Which opportunities do arise after the program?

Everything is possible, but there are no commitments. Our partners are essentially results orientated and future opportunities would depend mainly on the outcome of the project work. Possible cooperation is very variable and can take form of anythingbetween future supplier/customer relationships, production partner, and could even go as far as the partner purchasing equity in your company.The form and extent of any future cooperation will depend on the results of the project and on mutual interests and requirements.

Where do events take place?

The events take place at the Hirschvogel Ventures headquarter, the home base of the FASTTRACK program, in Landsberg am Lech approximately 45km south-west of Munich.
