We invest €100-500k at idea, pre-seed or seed stage, with seven-digit follow on capacities. Our investment hypotheses focuses on people. Traction is important to us, but not a required criterion for investment. We do not care about hype. Our experience from not taking short-cuts at Audibene, HomeToGo, Packmatic and Brain Capital tells us that longer term consistency creates much higher value for everyone than riding short term volatility.
What particularly excites us are digitally uncontested (blue ocean) markets and products differentiated through excellent customer, sales and marketing journeys. We invest industry-agnostic, with a c. 70:30 split of B2C and B2B models. Our historical expertise, is bundled in digital health platforms, consumer services, B2B Software as a Service, logistics and transportation, as well as financial technology.

"Earliest Stage" investing is our idea of providing strong operational input beyond financial capital to exceptional founders-to-be. This usually is a flexible combination of support in order to derisk product-market fit.
For example, we help to find or validate an idea, to source and bring together an exceptional founder team, set up the first operations or even to hire the first employees. Obviously, we also provide funding for the first 12-18 months of operations, and potential follow-on.
We want to work together with founders, not managers. This is not a structured 'incubation' programm. We know that a clean cap table and founder equity incentivisation is a fundamental value driver, and are flexible to adapt to the specific situation of the founding individual or team.
