Golden Egg Check – Selecting tomorrow’s winners
Startups are everywhere these days. We separate the wheat from the chaff. We work with and for startups, investors and corporates. Think of us as external analysts that can think like investors. We assess startups on potential and feasibility, and provide strategic insights with this.

We have developed a method to provide insights into the struggles and growth signals of startups. For if you want more than just gut feeling.
