Our Speedbooting® capability

We have developed a capability we call Speedbooting® – which in a “think big, start small, scale fast” process co-create human-centric solution ideas for the market quickly and efficiently. Through the building of many new ventures and digital companies, we have adopted and adjusted methodologies of entrepreneurship, innovation and co-creation to systematically build new impact ventures together with co-founders and corporates – and help them succeed, grow and create impact.

Active Projects

We build most of our impact ventures in-house, often in a co-creation process with corporates, universities, potential Co-Founders, and/or early-stage founders. Our extensive corporate co-creation community is our unfair advantage we bring to play

Concept: Menopause

Join us at KRING! We’re seeking visionary Co-founders, a Chief Commercial Officer, and a Chief Product Officer to lead our Menopause project. Together, we’ll pioneer innovative solutions for the diverse symptoms of menopause. If you’re passionate about women’s health and ready to make a difference, join us on this transformative journey.

Concept: Fertility

Through leveraging our support framework, and cutting-edge solutions, we empower founders and businesses on their mission to revolutionize the landscape of health and well-being, championing ideas and developing them into success stories.

What does KRING bring to the table?

We are an institutional co-founder with 18 years of experience building digital ventures, and we bring:

  • a robust venture building Speedbooting™ methodology that de-risks investment by ensuring thorough market validation before launch
  • multi-round financing (incubation, pre-seed, seed and take a lead on series A)
  • access to corporates (for co-creation and commercialization)
  • the right talent together - brings together the right team of co-founders (commercial, operating, tech, product, science) to bring idea to market and scale

How does KRING build ventures?

We follow our KRING Speedbooting™ Venture Building Model for everything we do. From market validation tll launch

.

Why not private equity or venture capital?

Venture Building outperforms old world PE and VC models by de-risking through systematic pre-deal validation, multi-round financing, and post-deal support.

.

Venture Building Venture Capital Private Equity

+ Proprietary deal flow through own incubation with founders and parners

+ Higher equity stakes - control from start to exit

+ High survival rates due to i) pre deal validation and ii) post deal support

+ Follow on capital to scale the investments and maximise returns

+ Limited/no agency costs from capital raises until track record

+ Faster time to exit and potential to capitalise on exit from asset scarcity and urge to deploy from "old world models"

+ Growth focused

+ "New world" economy

- Less scaleable

- Lots of opportunities, but mortality rates close to 90%

- Less in-depth/difficult due diligence

- Too much money chasing few deals

- Stakeholder management

+ Highly scaleable

+ Active ownership

+ Toolbox of value creation levers

+ Typical industry knowledge

- Too much money chasing few deals

- Difficult to handle transformation

- Extremely expensive model

- Focus on value distribution instead of value creation

.

The venture building approach is in general achieving better results at a faster pace. asthey build repeatable processes, have skin in the game from day one as an institutional co-founder and provide financial resources.

.

.

Studios are an outperforming asset class because they are able to buy ownership in a capital efficient way and are able to control the growth and scale through a dedicated bench of talent. Due to their high ownership and founding roles, we also believe that studios are less likely to be pushed down or washed out in the waterfall." - Sarah Anderson, Cintrifuse

Where does KRING source ideas for the ventures?
2
3

  • In-house:
    • We focus on building primarily in-house with our cross-functional venture building teams through our Speedbooting™ methodology and hire the right co-founders to take ideas forward alongside KRING
  • External partnerships:
    • Corporate players where C-level and decision makers are committed to building new services or products either for their own employees or customers
    • Existing early-stage ideas/ventures (typically before any external investment) when we find clear synergies between KRING and existing venture to accelerate product-market fit and founders see the value of bringing an institutional co-founder like KRING to run the venture via Speedbooting™ methodology (in exchange of 30-50% of the cap table)
    • University spin-outs

And this is what they say about working with us

We are co-creating Speedboats (companies) together with large corporates to accelerate corporates strategies, customer centricity and business agility. Furthermore, this accelerates the value creation for our sustainable impact companies and gives us an unfair advantage.
