Disclaimer related to service

We don't promise investment. NSV only invests in companies that has worked with previously through its venture building activities, in order to validate the investment potential.

Financial requirements

The programme fee for the venture building activities ranges depending on each case, but it averages around €50000 package for the 6 months programme. The conditions can be negotiable and we accept part of the payment as a convertible loan. We also reserve the right to invest back (or even more) in the company if we want to continue working with the company afterwards. For EIC participants we are offering the same package for €35000.
