A bit about Dreamcraft Ventures:
We are a Copenhagen-based venture capital manager investing in early-stage, tech-driven startups, primarily at seed stage in the Nordics and Germany, where we have a solid brand and network.
Based on our own experiences, we believe companies reach their highest potential with diverse founding teams of high-quality dreamers and crafters as reflected in portfolio companies such as:
- Teamway, a member-owned society of world-class tech professionals, building meaningful products and services
- GRID, an open data platform enabling strong and sustainable growth of the esports industry
- Hiber, an open metaverse platform enabling anyone to create virtual worlds in apps and web browsers.
The founders of Dreamcraft are also the founders as well still the dreamer (CEO) and crafter (COO) of what is now a +1bn USD global and listed company.
