Strategy

We are long-term investors (open-end fund) and have the knowledge to help companies scale up from zero to millions of turnover. As investors with substantial financial risk we understand what it takes to be an entrepreneur. Our strategy is focused on value-based investment, not speculation.
We balance our portfolio with companies in different stages so our portfolio companies can benefit from each other's knowledge and networks. We are constantly expanding our international network of tech hubs within and outside Europe. This network helps our participants to tap into the international growth potential.

Target group
