What our venture partners say about us

Martian & Machine is our trusted partner. We have been collaborating from the start and I can only praise the extensive expertise. Transitioning from Martian & Machine to our internal Urbify engineering also went super swiftly.

Ben

Founder

Urbify

… get ready for very short but precise meetings. After 12 years in corporate environments, I finally experienced, that building fast, means zero bullshit tolerance.

Joachim

Founder

Subezy

After they helped us pivot to clear product-market-fit, it was a much easier internal decision to launch in public and look for external investors.
