We are a venture capital investment holding focused on supporting passionate founders at the early stages of company foundation and growth. We seek emerging, innovative technology and visionary founders who create and lead companies that will thrive in a fast-growing market.
We have crafted a disciplined investment process that aims to reduce risk and produce better, more consistent returns. All investment decisions are evaluated using a process that aims to avoid cognitive biases, identify key drivers of risk and uncertainty, streamline due diligence, and calculate the probability-weighted return for any investment.
When we invest, we commit extensive resources beyond just capital to help companies transition from a seed-stage startup to the growth stage and beyond. After we invest, our team works actively with founders on the strategic, financial and business development elements needed to supplement their growth.
WHAT WE LOOK FOR
Often investing early in the life of a startup, we take risks on brilliant people with the right value proposition in high potential markets. We seek Founder-Market-Innovation fit, where a team of skilled and ambitious people in a large or fast growing market have developed an innovative and scalable solution to succeed.
We are anti-thematic and focus on startups seeking to disrupt large, existing industries or invent new market categories. We invest when we believe a founder has the potential to build a long-lasting, highly successful company and we welcome young or first-time founders who are technical or domain experts.
Lastly, we rarely invest in ideas and we generally ask for evidence of initial market traction. Consequently, we tend not to invest in Medtech and Biotech.
HOW WE INVEST
We prefer to invest early and lead seed rounds, and selectively participate in pre-seed or series A rounds. We invest at fair terms and make initial investments ranging from €150,000 to €500,000.
We like to be active partners supporting our founders to execute on successful business models, and offer advice on how to most effectively deploy capital. Our support extends to key areas of early-stage company building, including:
New market identification and development;
Accounting and budgeting;
We have also cultivated a group of investors that have the networks, influence, and expertise necessary to actively contribute to the success of the companies we back through customer introductions, meaningful connections, and more.
