  • First Momentum Ventures is one of this generation's most special venture capital funds.
  • We are one of the youngest VCs in Europe, the first European team to build a VC fund while in college, and are now taking off with our second €40-50m fund.
  • Over the last years, we have invested in ~30 pre-seed startups, focusing on B2B and (deep) tech companies, and have become one of the best-known pre-seed and tech investors in Germany.
  • Since then, many of our portfolio companies have raised successful follow-on funding from top European and US investors.
  • With our new fund, we are taking First Momentum Ventures to the next level and continuing to build one of the best pre-seed VCs in Europe!
  • We have built an ecosystem of over 100 startup enthusiasts in Germany, Austria, and Switzerland.

An essential part of First Momentum Ventures is our Venture Scouts, representing FMV in their ecosystems and helping us find the most exciting startups and connect with the teams. We already have over 130 Venture Scouts in various locations in the DACH region and are always looking for energetic reinforcements!
