Our philosophy

TheFactory has made a conscious choice to specialize in industry verticals so that we can facilitate the best possible collaboration between the industry and the founders.  By collaborating with our partners, several early stage startups have made their first sales or enter into agreements of starting pilot projects.

Through earlier programs, we have found that when our startups work with our industrial partners, the likelihood of success is increasing significantly. Therefore, we are strong believers in power-coupling.
