We work closely with universities and research institutions in various ways: most of our cooperation-agreements include our dedication to financial support for research projects that are ready to be turned into startups, working with career centers to hire student graduates and scientists to match them to the needs of our startup portfolio, or exchanging technical insights, expertise, and experience.
We cooperate with many organizations to discuss solutions to the world's big challenges, that impact society in the long-run. Our partnerships with non-profits are usually based on joining efforts to make local and global impacts through innovative, new projects and startups. We are always interested to take advantage of synergies between our partners' and our network.
Most of our partners are from the private sector who support us and our startups. We cooperate with companies from all industries that usually offer our startups discounts and mentors and gain access to investment opportunities and new customers through our portfolio.
IDFEC invests its own funds into the companies in its portfolio. While IDFEC is often one of the first investors in a startup, we always welcome co-investment opportunities. We also work together with private equity companies, other startup accelerators, and incubators to bring more resources to ideas, research, or startups that have the potential to make meaningful impacts.
