Our services

Red Contras is your partner in Crowdventuring and has a participative model for the three success factors of venturing: funding, knowledge and network. The participative model is simpel: it brings individuals and organizations together based on their explicit added value and in proportion to their input they can receive a fee or gain a share in the venture. This way parties can use their expertise and business strength in order to focus on shortening the time to market for nowadays ideas. Our aim is to create companies that improve lives and change industries.

Finance

We invest and seek for investors that push the edge of what’s possible in the fields of technology, life science, healthcare, children's future, education, artificial intelligence, robotics, transportation, data identity & security, gaming and agriculture.

Investors will gain a share depending on the monetization of the venture.

Know-How

The projects we accompany seek specific knowledge, industry experts and progressive leaders in the area of technology, life science, healthcare, children's future, education, artificial intelligence, robotics, transportation, data identity & security, gaming and agriculture. Specific knowledge may also refer to patents, intellectual property, sub-parts of a solution, etc.

Network

Growth isn't something that just happens. It's about making the right choices. Whether you're a tech company trying to nail early paid marketing or a startup looking to differentiate through his strategy, the best way to get up to speed really fast is always the same: re-use network and sales channels from parties who have been there before.
