Success stories

Jiaqi Pan

Looking back some years ago, when we joined Demium, there’s one thing I still have zero doubts about: the Demium concept is so much more than paddling together to change the world. To the Landbot.io Team and myself, Demium has been a trusty companion in our learning journey and entrepreneurship endeavor.

At Singularu we are proud to be born in the Demium family. We were so lucky to have had Demium guide our every step, redirect our route to the next station, help us pick the best professionals for our team and meet investors. They’ve always been there. Without Demium, Singularu wouldn’t have been possible… and that’s the big truth.

Demium helps talented individuals build balanced teams that are set up for success. If it weren’t for the program, I would have never met my exceptional co-founders.
There’s a community of top-notch mentors and entrepreneurs worldwide that will give you the right support and advice. I can’t overstate the value of having the perspective of seasoned experts to guide you every step of the way. If you’re looking to build a strong foundation for your startup, Demium is the place to be!

Demium was a ‘key factor’ for developing a startup. I’m sure many aspiring entrepreneurs can relate to my story. I moved to Spain having the energy and the experience to create something amazing, and Demium provided what I was missing: a team, guidance and an amazing place to grow as an entrepreneur.
I’m happy that we started this company in Demium, and look forward to all the possibilities that this community has to offer.

Ángel Mayoral

They helped us find the best professionals, heighten our strengths and improve our weaknesses, do things by the book, define a business model, seek investors and mitigate mistakes. We’ve always had their full attention and support. Without a speck of doubt, Demium is your best shot at setting up your business. Take my word for it.

Ricardo Morla

I had already set up two “traditional” companies. But I didn’t know what a startup was. When I first joined Demium I was astounded and amazed at everything I’ve been missing out on, and that I still had a long way to go. So many things have changed since then. From creating Rudo, which currently has 42 employees, to selling and joining Alfatec, a large IT company with 600 employees. None of this would have been made possible, had I not applied to Demium.

Building a startup is a road with many ups and downs, you have to know how to surround yourself with the right people. Demium is the perfect environment to find the right team, work hard together and get ready to start reaching your business goals.

    FAQs

    Do I need a team or idea before I join?

    No, it is not necessary to be on a team to access the programme. Through the AllStartup you will meet complementary and highly-driven people with whom to create a team and develop a startup from scratch. We will help you find the best co-founder for you.
    If you have a colleague with whom you want to create a project, but you are still in the initial phase and don’t have metrics, you must register separately and individually so that we can get to know you through our interviews.

    Do I need to have an idea?

    No, you don’t. At Demium we focus on raw entrepreneurial talent and capabilities rather than the business idea. We believe that what really characterizes an entrepreneur is the ability to move forward with an idea, execute it and overcome all the challenges that arise along the way. Nevertheless, if you have an idea, we will be more than happy to hear it.

    Who decides on the idea?

    Once the programme begins, we analyze and discuss a range of business ideas and market trends in teams. The founding team will then decide what idea to progress with. It’s important that entrepreneurs identify with, and are passionate about, the idea they are going to develop.

    What should I do if I have an idea?

    Apply as an individual and once you’re selected to participate in the incubation programme, you can propose your business idea for evaluation.

    What should I do if I have a startup?

    Simply apply as a startup and let us know more information about your project.

    Can I be an entrepreneur and create a startup while working another job?

    No. We believe that creating a startup from scratch that in just six months achieves its first € 100K of investment is practically impossible without the full dedication of its co-founders.

    Who creates the teams?

    Once the programme begins, Demium will suggest the ideal profiles to complete each team, but it is the founding team that makes the ultimate decisions. We have great success in forming teams at an early stage.

    What are my obligations during the programme?

    You will benefit from the support of the Demium team and our panel of mentors so that your startup grows as quickly as possible
    We will set milestones to achieve the objectives that we agree on, so we count on your full dedication to be able to achieve your first round of investment at the end of the programme.

    Where does the incubation programme take place?

    You will access the programme of the city in which you have submitted your application. During the programme you will have access to our entire ecosystem and international contacts.

    Is Demium going to help me get investment?

    Entrepreneurs will receive mentoring and assistance with their project to best prepare them to qualify for a €100K pre-seed investment with Demium’s asset management company, Think Bigger Capital.

    Demium’s partner fund plans to invest €100K in more than 200 startups over the next 3 years, and reserves an additional 37.5% of the fund for follow-on investments, up to €500K.
