How to get funded?

HSIF offers soft investments to student entrepreneurs with promising business ideas from 500 up to 3000 euros. In addition to funding, we offer business coaching to help you grow your business.

We don’t take a share in your company, nor do we give you a loan with a fixed maturity and interest rate.

We believe that our investment should not limit your growth.

We only expect a return if you succeed! That's what we mean by 'together we grow!'
