Project Flying Elephant

Project Flying Elephant is the incubator of early-stage investor WestTech Ventures and supports teams and founders in their founding stage and early development phases.

You can benefit from a first angel investment as well as from many additional value-adding services in fields such as office hours, access to partner services, discounts & perks, office space and workshops. Through personal mentoring and coaching, you get advice and learn from experienced experts and our team.

We focus on tech-savvy teams which build outstanding products

We love state-of-the-art products designed for consumers and enterprises alike which change the way they interact and work and ultimately help them be more productive. We are looking for strong tech-savvy teams who want to solve real problems with innovative and unique ideas and whose goal is to build sustainable companies. With the new batch of this year, we will combine the topics of the last two batches of Flying Elephant, DeepTech, and MediaTech, and merge them into one, more open program. The teams can focus on e.g. B2B, SaaS-related software, and other tech topics as well as on media technology, education, health, and others. There is one condition though: the teams must be able to build and /or oversee their technology in their own team.

Our Vision

“We want to make elephants fly!” – and take founders to the next level! We fully believe in forward thinking concepts and the minds behind them. We want to give you the chance to make them happen and be part of the ongoing digital revolution.
