founders need a true committment for experience driven advise and coaching, which is complemented with pragmatic early external money
during the first six to nine months after having solidified their idea, funded a company
and developed a MVP, which they can demonstrate to early adopters in their target market.

Over the past thirteen years, SaaSgarage has develop a very unique, success oriented cooperation model, which persuaded more than twenty founders of (by now) well regarded B2B SaaS companies to join forces with SaaSgarage.
