At Freigeist, we believe startups are a key driver of innovation and progress. Ultimately, startups improve the quality and sustainability of our lives. In our 25 years of founding and supporting startups, we have been through the highest highs and lowest lows. Building a company is a tough challenge, but we can’t think of a better way to spend your professional life.
Besides our money, we bring 20 years of founding experience, our network and a real hands-on mentality to the table. We support our portfolio in Operations, Product, Tech, HR, Fundraising, Finance, Brand, PR and more.
