Why is GELITA interested in partnering up with startups?
We've set up the Partnership Program to engage with startups and facilitate collaboration. Working closely together with startups gives us the opportunity to explore new markets. We want to gain insights into cutting edge technologies and learn about innovative ideas – outside our company.
What kind of partnerships do you offer?
Critical to the success of any partnership are aligned incentives. Therefore, we do not have a standardized approach of collaboration – let’s sit together and reflect what works best for you und us. We connect early-stage startups to our innovation projects, to our business sectors for co-development or to our investment team.
Is my startup a fit for GELITA?
We're looking for sustainable products and business models that are connected to our portfolio and add value to customers. We seek committed entrepreneurs who feel passionate about what they do.
Do you take equity?
Yes and no. We act as a long-term oriented and entrepreneurial partner, empowering early-stage startups in the nutrition and technology ecosystem. We offer equity-based and non-equity-based partnership models.
Why should I apply?
We have a profound track record of innovations and we believe in the power of collaboration. Thus, we dedicate our industry-specific experience, skills and network to help you bring ideas to life and grow your company.
How do I apply?
Please apply using our form. We review applications on an ongoing basis and will get back to you as soon as possible.
I have further questions or comments. How can I get in touch?
We will consider all suggestions and feedback concerning our partnership program, as they present highly valuable insights to us. We're happy to answer any questions via email at [email protected].
