[lab_heading title=“About us“ el_class=“title“]New business models require new forms of financing[/lab_heading]

Round2 supports outstanding entrepreneurs in driving their business forward without diluting ownership. The way company value is created has undergone fundamental changes. Today value is created by disruptive business models building on immaterial assets, digitization and technological progress. Yet, the way these companies are financed has not changed, bank finance and venture capital are still the same. At Round2 we believe that new business models require a new form of financing and we are providing it.

[lab_heading title=““ el_class=“title“]The Round2Lab[/lab_heading]

Our philosophy is that outstanding entrepreneurs know best what is best for their business. However, even the most talented entrepreneur can never learn enough to get better. That is why we have created Round2Lab, a program with focus on how to drive your business up to scale, where you can debate, reflect and learn from top experts together with other outstanding entrepreneurs.
