Testimonials

"I was looking for a place where I could use my work experience, meet interesting people and learn something about the startup world. The place where I could give and take at the same time. I found it in Grouport. Participating in the decision-making process on where to invest is interesting. I am part of a team of people with different experiences who evaluate the potential of young people to succeed with their ideas."

Igor Zahradníček

"After the pitch event we were contacted by a number of interested investors including Michal from Grouport Ventures. We spoke regularly over the weeks that followed regarding our business. It was apparent they were professional, reliable and trustworthy. We went through a thorough process of due diligence which gave us opportunity to build a relationship, although remotely."
