We back the best European founders with €500k-€5m tickets. We like boring or ‘too small’ markets, atypical business models, or any early-stage business that is simply a little different in one way or another.
Before we invest
↔ Conversation about things you actually care about.
✍🏻 No need to build decks or investor pleasing models, we work with the documents and metrics that you use to steer the business.
📅 Days rather than weeks between first meeting & signed term sheet.
After we have invested
🎯 Deeply committed investor that aims for a 100% hit rate: no spray and pray with us, you will be 1 of the 3 companies we invest in each year.
🤷🏽♀️ A shareholder that dares to say “I don’t know” and lets you run the business in the way you see fit. No pushing for influence or of bad ideas.
🔥 When we do something, we do it well: the best support in hiring, fundraising & target setting.
💸 henQ companies use less funding and dilute less to grow to 10M ARR / annualized net revenue than the average VC backed business.
📌 We are fine if you want to build a sustainable business without ever raising a follow-on round. If you do decide to raise: as a henQ company your chances of raising a proper follow-on round are 2,7x better than the market average.
