We fund companies at Seed and pre-Series A Stage with up to seven-digit investments. In addition to the invested capital, the main value of our involvement results from our experience, active support and collaboration with the founders. Working closely together we help the founders build innovative tech companies that have the potential to make our world a better place.
We support our portfolio startups 360°. We help with product, business development, sales, operations, finance, HR – and everything else that is necessary to help the startups grow. After our investment, we work with the founders on the roadmap for the next 12-24 months in order to achieve specific milestones and secure the required funding with reliable and well-known partner investors. Based on this approach, we only make 1-3 investments per year in order to offer full hands-on support.
Within the next 20 years, our world will change radically. New technologies like AI, Robotics, 5G and Quantum-Computing are moving from research labs into our everyday lives. This is our biggest opportunity to improve quality and sustainability of life. We need to embrace new technology to shape our future.
Startups are a key driver for innovation and progress. At the core this belief and our passion for helping founders change the world for the better inspire us every day. Building a company is insanely tough. With over two decades of experience, we’re here to tackle the challenges of building and scaling your startup together: from creating an outstanding product to marketing, business development, sales, operations, finance and growing your team. We’re your long-term partner in building a European Tech Champion.

WE OPEN UP OUR NETWORK: Not only will we get you on a table with the right business partners, experts and potential customers - we’ll be right there with you on that table.
WE ARE FOUNDERS: Being founders ourselves, we know the challenges that lie ahead and are eager to share our experience and put in the extra hours to help build up your company. We truly do have a hands-on mentality.
TECHNOLOGY COMES FIRST: We understand and are passionate about technology. We don’t just look at KPIs, we first want to get to know the core of your product and are able to offer technical support.
WE ARE PURPOSE-DRIVEN: We believe that technology is our biggest chance to overcome global challenges which is why we are willing to take higher risks for purpose-driven innovations.
