No articles this week, but an update on NEXT:
We are proud to announce our first investment in: Cocoon! Cocoon helps you find meaningful jobs at fast growing companies like 3DHubs, SnappCar, Catawiki, Usabilla and many others. Their vision to change the way recruiting is done, focussing on a culture match far more than just a job description that needs to be filled, resonates with us.
We have been working together with Cocoon since they were part of Rockstart’s Web/Mobile 2015 program. We have maintained an advisory relationship ever since and the decision to invest naturally evolved from this relationship. Our investment consists of both money and hands-on, one-on-one coaching and mentorship to accelerate the validation of their business model.
One of our goals at NEXT is to be a truly founder-friendly investor. We are ‘mentors that invest’ more than investors offering ‘value add’. To prove that, we are vesting our shares. Do we not deliver the added value we promise, we don’t get the shares that are promised us. Step by step we work towards a more equal relationship between founder and investor.
