Why invest in start-ups?

A start-up is a young company created to market or develop an innovative product or service. Start-ups are characterized by their innovative nature, their scalability and their potential for rapid growth. That makes them interesting to invest in. What makes investing in a start-up interesting?

  • New and innovative: start-ups are engaged in developing new products, services or technologies that do not yet exist or shake up an existing market with an innovative approach.
  • Scalability: a start-up has the potential to grow rapidly, capture a large market share and seek scalability through their business model, technology or service.
  • Drive: most start-ups are founded by people who are willing to take risks, think innovatively and work hard to realize their vision and market their product or service.
  • Funding: a start-up is usually looking for outside investors to generate or accelerate growth.
  • Focus on growth: start-ups are highly focused on growth and capturing a larger market share.
