The idea for xdeck grew when we started to build THE SHIP, FOND OF’s new home. We are driven by the desire to create impact and give back to the community. By helping other founders and by educating young people. And at the same time, we believe there are positive spillover effects from having startup founders and new ideas around. We want to give team players at FOND OF and all xdeck partners the opportunity of engaging with startups, of being inspired by entrepreneurs and of committing their time and ideas in working with founders. We are not driven by investment rationales. We do not take equity from founders in our accelerator program. We will not make profits from xdeck. Of course, it is possible that our founders Flo, Oli, Sven later invest in a selected startup from xdeck, but this is not obligatory.
