How we invest
We invest in success-oriented entrepreneurs who use world-changing technologies to develop disruptive solutions and help them grow through capital, know-how and network.
An active network creates added value
Our goal is to support the growth of the startups in our portfolio in the best way possible. We are aware that every product must first be developed and then successfully positioned on the market. As active investors, we therefore carry out a needs and network analysis as part of the due diligence process and thus evaluate the added value we can offer the founders.
Access to decision makers in the respective target market is a decisive competitive advantage. Our startups have access to a wide range of experienced industry experts. They provide support with their know-how and open up their network to multipliers and potential customers.
It is important that startups avoid making mistakes that others have already done. So why not learn from each other without losing entrepreneurial freedom. We promote the exchange within our portfolio as well as to established entrepreneurs from our network, who have already gone the way from founding to a successful exit.
Founders of startups concentrate best on the success in the operative business. This is why we prepare our portfolio early on for follow-up rounds and open up our investor network to help find strategically relevant investors. Together to a successful exit.

What we stand for
We are honest with ourselves and with others, always with a positive intention. We see the world as it really is, not as we wish it to be.
We have consistency in what we say, what we do and who we are. We always act reliable, responsible, accountable and inventive.
We are a team of teams working hard to support the startup ecosystem in Europe. Trust, mutual motivation and honest reflection are our principles.
We are courageous and see good risks as a necessary part of entrepreneurial action. We understand that this means that we will sometimes fail. We learn from our mistakes, we don't repeat them and we constantly strive to improve ourselves, so that in sum the successes outweigh the failures.
In order to build sustainable success, the long-term has to prevail over the short-term. We see the cooperation with investors, partners and founders as a marathon - not a sprint.
