Founders & Entrepreneurs in Residence

We are constantly seeking founders who are the driving force behind the implementation of business models.
As a company builder, our first task is to assemble an excellent start-up team that best fits the business idea.
The benefit for our founders is that they can fully focus on the business, supported by C.STAR’ knowledge, experience and fundraising expertise.

We are a team of business experts and assist our founders in all the relevant areas. Together, we turn ideas into a concept and create a product. The crucial difference between us and a traditional investor is that we are operationally involved and have the necessary manpower. With us, founders can flexibly integrate the best possible experts – thereby turning fixed costs into variable costs and efficiently achieving outstanding results. Knowledge management is generally our ultimate goal: we coach and advise our founders and share our knowledge with our start-ups.

Ideas are the start of every business model

We turn ideas into business models and validate these using our expertise. Ideas often come to us together with a founder or start-up team. We have also founded extremely successful start-ups in which the person who generated the idea has not assumed an operational role. In such cases, we offer a consultancy role on the start-up’s advisory committee.

Rolling up our sleeves to create value

Our qualified business experts are always ready to support and assist the founders in all relevant areas. Together, we turn ideas into a concept and create a product. The crucial difference between us and a traditional investor is that we are operationally involved and have the necessary manpower.

Efficient fundraising is a competitive advantage

Those who efficiently raise capital, have more time for implementation. For online business models, in particular, speed is a major factor. We work intensively with our founders during funding rounds. After countless fundraising, we know exactly what we need to do.
Our founders can focus on presenting their start-up, while we take care of negotiating terms and drafting contracts.

We work closely with the startup more than normal VC and accelerator.
As serial entrepreneur, we are aware of recurring challenges and constantly adapt the business model together with founders.

Actively involved in implementation as an institutional co-founder

We actively support founders and do our best to achieve the startups goals, and empower them from the level of seed to the exit.
We use our wisdom and experience to give the right advice and build on projects using our qualified team members.

Direct investments and passive commitments via managed funds

Our start-ups generate highly attractive returns for our co-investors. Our concept envisages that the capital with the greatest risk of default (pre-seed) comes from the company builder. From the initial funding round onwards, we organise capital increases with external investors, thereby providing important growth capital.

Subsequent SeaStar Studio investments come from fund vehicles that mirror those of independent investors at the same terms. As well as direct investments in individual start-ups, investors also have the opportunity to participate in the success of our start-ups via funding rounds.
