Aggrator offers Basic and Extended Services to facilitate value creation in the startups and scale ups that configure the companies in our portfolio.
Basic services shall cover immediate needs that almost any startup has, right from the start. These services are included in our fixed, monthly fee and are partially subsidized by SIVA.
Extended Services on the other hand are services that startups or scale ups may need along the way when establishing their operations and growing them.
All startups and scale ups in our portfolio are assigned to an Account Manager and a Mentor, selected according to the company’s specific needs.
Mentors are independent top-class experienced professionals with background from different industries, startups, academia and even investment entities.
A Mentor’s mission is to help entrepreneurs in their decision making process and to contribute to the rapid development of portfolio companies with their competence, experience and their personal network of professionals, investors and potential customers.
Account Managers are Aggrator employees and have the overall responsibility for the successful development and value creation in the startups or scale ups of our portfolio. Our mission is to support these companies and their mentors by providing additional help when needed by removing obstacles, identifying synergies between companies in our portfolio and by any other means.
Portfolio companies, Mentors and Account Managers meet on a regular basis – usually once a month – in order to assess the progress of the portfolio company, discuss next steps, and prepare it for the next investment round.
Account Managers and Mentors are the spine of our organization and the funnel Aggrator uses to deliver all Basic Services:

Access to relevant Portfolio Companies in the incubator, creating synergies
