Investing in start-ups through FIT Verticals programmes
The Foundation has developed FIT Verticals on specific investment sectors, such as the FIT Foodtech Vertical, to leverage and reduce the risks of early stage investments made by third parties, such as - but not limited to - Corporate Ventures (CVs), Venture Capital Funds (VCs) and Family Offices.
Investments are made in the name of the Foundation and a three-year option is granted to the third party. This gives the third party a longer period to observe its potential target and can decide later whether or not to call the option. This value proposition gives the right to different contracts and conditions.
