We always target independence of our projects and ventures by support to building a self sustaining organisation and business and therefore Axelra will, after a jointly agreed venture building plan, handover the core operations to the built team of the venture.
We work with partners to enable proper operation and the desired growth. To achieve this, we use the combined power and experience of our ecosystem to continuously develop the product and the business.
