Grow something
that will last

Seed support and investment for startups. The Seed Starter program supports startups during the Go-To-Market phase, and brings external projects under Česká spořitelna’s wing.

Why are we doing this?

We are a bank that has been in the marketplace for almost 200 years.

 

We believe in honest entrepreneurship and the creation of longstanding value.

 

We have the resources and knowledge to support you.

 

We want to help true entrepreneurs prosper in the long term.

Our philosophy

We’re a different kind of a seed fund. We want to help companies that are built for sustainable and lasting growth. If you just want to be rich and famous, don’t call us. But if you have a brilliant idea, a strong team and a clear plan, we’re here to help, inspire and educate you.

Welcome to the era of long-game entrepreneurs. If you can convince us why your startup will still be here in 200 years, we will invest in you.

Our solution
for long-game startups

Startup Bootcamp
 

Prepare to have your ideas and plans shaken to their foundations.
 

 

Incubation
 

Founding a startup is one thing, making it a thriving company and keeping it on the rise is another. That's why every project gets its own mentor from us.

Investment

We have "smart money" that we will invest in a structured and logical way to create long-term value.

 

Silicon Valley Accelerator

Silicon Valley Accelerator will get you on the path to becoming a long-game entrepreneur and prepare you for your next expansion.

How can get involved

Fintech

Help us expand our financial services portfolio with innovative products in segments where we aren’t yet present, or where our customer services are lagging behind or still have room for growth.

 

Plugin Challenge

Connect your business to George, Česká spořitelna’s banking app. It gives you the potential to reach almost 2 million users.

 

Sustainability
 

Help us achieve a better tomorrow by combining your talent with modern technologies in the field of sustainability.
