WHAT WE DO FOR ENTREPRENEURS

Our involvement in the start and scale ups we invest in is above all about the support we can give to the people who run them. This support is characterized by the following qualities. Sharpness: we listen carefully, go in-depth and challenge when needed. Stability: we are long-term partners for our management teams and look for solutions that are mutually desirable. That’s how we have helped to build and exited great companies in the past. We have been in venture capital for over 13 years and know that unexpected things happen and how to go about them. Professionality: we work in a highly professional manner and help our management teams with building a professional and high performing companies themselves. Broad expertise: we use our years of experience in SaaS and PaaS investments, industrial and food processes and equipment and market places to accelerate our companies.
