What we do

Silicon Valley's monopoly on the start-up market is a thing of the past. We know there's great talent to be found everywhere, that's why we've made it our mission to find it and bring the opportunity to start their own company to them.

At Demium we create start-ups from scratch, enabling local entrepreneurs to create valuable and lasting companies. Individuals get support from us throughout their journey, from finding a co-founder to developing an idea into a verified business model and helping to secure seed investment.

The opportunity

Next to incubating start-ups, Demium is in the process of launching several funds over the next few years that will look to invest in our start-ups. We will invest opportunistically in a wide array of start-ups, with a tech focus covering broad swathes of the ecosystem, including AI, travel tech, digital health, fin tech, HR tech, industrial tech, insur tech, prop tech, etc.
