With up to EUR 10 million per investment, we can accompany startups into the expansion phase or invest directly in growth financing.
Spin-offs from companies can unleash enormous potential for innovation and returns. We are the specialized partner for organizational structuring and financing.
In addition to innovative ideas and scalable business models, we invest primarily in entrepreneurs.
In many cases, we are the first institutional investor in our portfolio companies. With our investment and hands-on investment management, we support the achievement of ambitious company goals while ensuring financing for at least 18 months. In doing so, we invest alone as lead investor or together with co-investors from our extensive network.
Typically, we invest not only once, but over several financing rounds and, if the company is growing accordingly, we do so several times. We thus enable companies to grow sustainably over time.
