We believe that strategic partnerships are not only about money but supporting mutually beneficial relationships. We add value beyond capital by leveraging new technologies and digitalization to create solutions towards a cleaner, healthier, and more sustainable future.

Where we focus

The wincubator focuses on companies with forward-looking technologies and innovative business models in the industry and the service sector. More specifically through water, smart building, industry 4.0, and innovative clean technologies. We are looking to invest up to 20 million in strategic partners over the next 4 years.

We are especially interested in companies that demonstrate above-average growth or the potential to achieve this.

Our approach

The wincubator, looks for start-ups that have already entered into the market and have a solid customer base. Our strategic approach means we not only find something to invest in but something that we can contribute to and that can contribute to us.

We work with businesses we know will be long-term strategic partners. We know each company is unique and that is why we do not have a one-size-fits-all approach in helping you reach your goals. We support you where you really need support and will develop this approach together with you.
