Digital Factory is a Business Incubator founded by Sabie Valner (founder of Vatera) to help startups build better products, raise funding they need to succeed and ultimately grow more successful, global businesses.
In our Business Incubation programs we employ best practices established by larger, world-leading technology accelerators to give much more than money to our portfolio companies. Thus, we invest “smart money”: financing of up to $500,000 per startup (cash from our own successful exits and government co-financing) and lots of experience from building and selling our own companies. We have bride capacity to work with up to 21 companies per year although we prefer to work with a few large opportunities.
Industry-wise, we are open to any opportunity in digital technology but prefer to concentrate on ‘transactional technologies’ (e-commerce, global marketplaces and related big data/enabling SaaS tools) as this is where our domain expertise lies.
Why Choose Us?
We run 3-6 months long Business Incubation Programs throughout the year. These programs focus on companies with global market potentials and first help them find product-market fit then follow-up financing to penetrate global markets.
We are a globopolitan team of technologists, marketeers and investors. Our 10 people hold 8 different passports, lived in 21 countries and worked or invested in more than 30.
With the opportunity to work alongside with fellow entrepreneurs you can build your professional network, ask for help with business and development questions and get instant feedback about your product.
Usually we have 5-12 companies in our batch. We have the capacity to work with bigger batches but we prefer to work with a few big opportunities.
Our mentors and advisors are experienced entrepreneurs. We not just talking about building businesses we have been there, done that.
