Our Q&A is all about helping
🤔 Could you help me out?
We can't work with everyone. But we can always help! Our door is always open for new ideas and meetings. If we can build together that's great, if not we'll share our feedbacks and pieces of advice.
📕 What is your story?
Since 2018, we created a group of impact driven people (mostly French), between 25 and 35 years old, with various experiences in startups.
Our goal is to support founders and launch projects from 0 to series A, and more if affinity.
We're based in Amsterdam and in Paris. Since the end of 2021, we're 30 people in the team.
We like working on any kind of project, public or private, as long as we get the best alignment of interests.
📜 Do you have a manifesto?
As developers, product managers, designers, entrepreneurs, we work to make tomorrow's tech more useful, fairer, less invasive, less consuming.
We are committed to projects that make sense, with actors who contribute positively to our society.
We set up simple, efficient and frictionless experiments.
💰 What do you cost?
We are at the median of the European freelance market. We always want to charge the right price. We cost less and deliver better than any other agency or collective. We are certified by the CIR (French research tax credit) allowing to get tax free.
⚖️ How many shares do you take on projects?
Until now it has always been on a case by case basis. Obviously we don't take shares on the public projects. But for the other business oriented startups, we tried to find the best solutions every time. Our goal is to ensure that the interests of the founders are aligned with those of the studio. We made mistakes, and we are starting to find the best format. We will share our partnership standards in the coming weeks.
🇫🇷 Why isn't your website in French?
If you're asking this question, you probably know that we are a lot of French people in the team and that we work with the French government. We communicate in English because our ambition is to create projects for the largest number of people, at least for all of Europe. For those who can not read in English, send us a message. If there's a lot of you, we will also publish the website in French.
🤷 Can I work with you if I am a freelancer?
Yes for sure! Half of the team is under permanent contract and the other half is freelance. Initially we were all freelancers, but we ended up joining in order to be better structured and to be able to have contracts, especially for real estate purchases.
