Qasar YounisFounder & CEO of Applied Intuition, Former COO & Partner at Y Combinator
Combient exceeded my expectations by leaps and bounds. I wish every company we engaged with had set up something like this -- not only was the process direct and transparent, it was fast. Really impressive.
Natalia RinconCEO at CHAOS
When matching corporates and startups, one of the most time consuming tasks is finding customers’ real needs. Combient Foundry is the first of its kind to connect startups with customers that have a real and concrete needs. If anything, I would recommend startups to forget about accelerators and focus in customer validation, this is something that Combient Foundry excels at. Highly recommended!
Indra den BakkerCo-Founder of Overstory.ai
We would highly recommend other startups to participate in a Venture Client Cycle. When you can address a real and concrete business need for the customer, we would not hesitate to apply!
Kristian RodeCCO at SHUTE Sensing Solutions A/S
We found a good match with KONE’s search for new approaches to predictive maintenance. Combient Foundry has been part of the whole process, from making it easy to join and screening propositions, to hosting the meetings and taking part in facilitating the scoping phase. We have a really good impression of Combient Foundry and their work to help new technology companies meet large industrial companies. In other words, it has been a pleasure working with them.
Jaakko KaidesojaPresident of Imagine Intelligent Materials
The Combient Foundry Cycle is a great forum for a startup to get access to the relevant decision-makers. After two meetings, we already have a plan for a POC and practical steps in further partnership with Stora Enso... This is a very efficient use of time.

We build the best VR solutions for construction space in Europe, USA and Brazil, and it is truly a privilege to work with a global industry-leader such as KONE on this new front. Foundry served as an essential part of forming great connections between us and KONE decision-makers. Thanks Foundry team!

Adam PhillipsVP, Business Development for Sixgill, LLC
By working shoulder-to-shoulder with KONE on the development of a real-world proof of concept, we gained great insight into the Smart Construction market and the solutions our platform can deliver - I would definitely recommend Foundry to other companies.
