At STRATOSFARE it’s all about venture clienting: deep cooperations between startups and corporates without transferring equity or IP. We help startups to get a purchase order – to integrate their technology into the corporates’ products, services, internal processes or business models. Based on a proof of concept or prototype, both parties evaluate the potential for further cooperation.
Entrepreneurial courage deserves respect: We appreciate startups as important partners on our path to innovative key technologies, fascinating products and intelligent processes. That’s why our collaborations happen at eye level – regardless of your company size or your age.
While the B2C business unicorns seem to outshine everybody else, it’s easy to forget the power and size of B2B business – especially for manufacturing companies. Use your potential!
