APX is Europe’s leading very-early-stage VC. Based in Berlin and backed by Axel Springer and Porsche, we support and partner with the most ambitious pre-seed startups from Europe and beyond - often as their first investor. We're a small, diverse team coming from different places with a shared passion for helping startups become successful and have a positive impact.
We invest up to EUR 500,000 in startups even before a Series A, starting with a quick EUR 50,000 investment, which is followed by further investment tranches, depending on fundraising, traction and speed. Our fund size is EUR 55 Million of which substantial funds are allocated for early follow-on investments.
Our Venture Development team and Platform is designed to provide support across the crucial early-stage pillars of: B2B Customer Discovery and Sales, Digital Marketing, Mental Health, Talent and Follow-On Capital. Our relationship is kicked off with a 6-week Venture Development Sprint, designed to maximize your potential for follow-on capital.
Our team and resources are always available as you generate and approach inflection points in your venture. We give you access to all our extensive online and offline resources, network, curated mentors and campus. This includes our platform APX.network – our own digital product that connects all founders, experts, mentors and follow-on investors in one place.
