FAQs

Here you will find the answers to the most common questions about us and our Programmes.

Incubation Programme

It is not necessary to have a team. In the Incubation Programme you will meet complementary and like-minded people to create a team with whom to develop a startup from scratch.

Our team will evaluate your project and decide if you can join Demium. In case you join our programme, we will prepare you to present your startup to Demium Capital’s Investment Committee.

No, you don’t. At Demium, we focus on people’s talent. For us, what defines an entrepreneur is his or her ability to carry out any idea and execute it, overcoming all kinds of obstacles. 

Once the Incubation Programme begins, we will help you find a business idea that fits your experience and interests. 

If you already have an idea in mind, we can validate it together during the Incubation Programme – join our AllStartup so we can get to know you!

If you already have a startup incorporated in the commercial registry and with metrics, fill out this form. Tell us more about your startup, where it is right now and how we can help you achieve your goals.

The Incubation Programme is offline and requires a full-time dedication. During 6 months we will help you create a startup from scratch and present it to our fund to get 150.000€ of investment.

Our team will organize dynamics so that you can get to know each other and decide with whom you want to build a startup.

Our team will work with you and help you in everything you need, so we ask for a full time commitment and presence in order to achieve your goal: to create your own startup from scratch.

 

In addition, most of the value of the Programme is related to the dynamics, activities and human relationships that are built between entrepreneurs in the day to day of the offices.

In each of our European locations, and simultaneously: Valencia, Madrid, Barcelona, Malaga, Lisbon, Warsaw and Prague. You will always have access to our entire ecosystem and international contacts.

We will prepare you so that in just six months you can present the project to our fund, Demium Capital, opting for the first €150,000 in the pre-seed round. Our fund can invest up to €500,000 in subsequent rounds.

 

In addition, we will put you in contact with our network of investors, VCs and business angels so you can get more funding.

Acceleration Programme

A complete co-founding team: a minimum of 2 co-founders with full time dedication to carry out the project.

An innovative solution with traction: you have already developed the technology or you already have the intellectual property of a solution to a problem in the sector. You must be in a stage where you already have metrics and traction in the market.

An incorporated company: you must have created -or must have the possibility to create – a limited company registered in Spain or Portugal, which develops the activity of your business proposal.

If we believe your startup has potential but it’s too soon, we’ll evaluate your project to join our Incubation Programme and raise investment in less than 6 months.

No, you can apply from Spain, Portugal, Greece, Czech Republic, Estonia, UK, Poland and Ukraine. Nevertheless, a great value of this Acceleration Programme is related in landing in the Spanish and Portuguese market, so you would benefit the most if you are already, or have expansion plans, in this region.

1. You fill in the form with all the information about your project

2. Our team will review it and decide if it fits with Demium

3. If your project is pre-selected, you’ll work with us during a month, so that you can present your startup to the Investment Committee. If they decide to invest, you’ll start the Programme and receive a first investment of €100,000.

During the programme, we help you prepare the necessary materials to present your startups to investors in the pre-seed/seed round. Our commitment goes further and we will work together to raise the following investment rounds.

You won’t have any kind of cost or commitment with Demium.

It’s only necessary to be offline during the onboarding days and at the closure of the Programme. If you are in Barcelona, Lisbon, Madrid, Málaga, Warsaw or Prague, you can always work from our offices.

The total duration is 12 months + the posterior support after having raised investment from Demium Capital. The Programme is divided into two phases:


1. The first 6 months you’ll have weekly sprints and sessions for a more customized support.


2. During the following 6 months, our team will follow-up with the project in a monthly basis until you close the financing round.

Our coaches are experts in 10 fundamental areas to accelerate your company: Strategy, Sales, Marketing, Performance, Growth Hacking, Product Development, Technology, Operations growth, Financing Modelling, Fundraising, Pitching, Access to public funds and Lean Methodologies.

The responsibility of raising investment is of the CEO and the team, always with our support. By joining the Acceleration Programme, we invest an initial €100,000 in your project, inviting our +1,000 investors network to join the pre-seed round.

Our commitment goes beyond the Programme and the first investment round. Our fund can invest an additional €400,000 in the following rounds, and we will work with you every single time you need us.
