ABOUT FALKENSTEINER VENTURES

We are an early long-term investor and mentor and, with our know how, network and drive significantly increase the likelihood of your venture becoming a success.

Tourism was booming worldwide. All forecasts predicted ‘growth’. And current research confirms this will return very soon! Many traditional business models, however, are at the end of their lifecycles. Thus, it's your chance to whirl up the market with your startup and leave your footprints - together with us!

INNOVATION CENTER FOR STARTUPS

In our hubs in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy we bring your concepts, products and services on one table together with the specific know how of experienced professionals and potential partner firms. We link ideas, challenge business models and business plans, in order to ignite the next stage. We get on your schedule and do not march in cohorts like in accelerator programs.

MENTORING & NETWORK FOR STARTUPS

We support you with the right fit of mentors and door openers. Our network provides quality time. We understand mentoring as smart hands-on work, not as a lifestyle. We let founders be entrepreneurs or coach you on your path to become great leaders.

SEED FUNDING FOR STARTUPS

We invest up to € 500k of our own money per case in brilliant teams and business models. In return we receive company shares and then want to work with you to develop your business and add value.
