Sales Support

All of our portfolio companies receive free sales and growth support on topics that startups need most during and after the seed phase. Founders, executives and sales teams receive training on leadership skills, sales development and optimization, recruiting, sales incentives and many other topics.

Our team of in-house sales coaches develops an individual training plan with each of our portfolio companies. At an initial kick-off, we define focus areas together and you determine which topics, when and to what extent the training should take place.

Kick-off workshop & feedback report

Our in-house sales trainers first take stock of your sales structures and experiences and work with you to define the areas in which you may need coaching. To do this, they create a detailed feedback report that provides you with your initial starting points to optimize structures, processes and presentations.

Sales & Marketing

Among the areas we can work on with you to build out the sales and marketing organization, are developing the sales strategy and defining the sales process, pitch training, creating sales documents or sales scripts, communication training, building team structures and recommending suitable CRM and sales tools.

Sales & HR

Our coaches work with you to develop efficient recruiting and onboarding processes, conduct joint interview training, discuss the design of incentive programs and team building, and structure continuous sales training for employees.

CEO & CSO coaching & pitch training

How can I improve my storytelling or optimize the pitch deck for customers and other financing rounds? Together with you we will work on your presentation style and you will learn more about the implementation of successful approaches in the areas of communication, discussion and leadership.


Practice efficient strategies for successful employee management, reflect on your own leadership style, train conflict management and discuss successful team development and composition directly with the trainers based on your startup.

Free and

Every startup that we invest in receives several free sales coaching days on the topics it needs and wants. These can be called up at any time as required, and take place in the premises of the startup, seed + speed Ventures or the entire Maschmeyer Group.

„The entire seed + speed team and even Carsten Maschmeyer personally supported us with sales support, strategy sparring and valuable contacts from their network. That is worth many times more than the pure cash investment.“
