Which founders we are looking for

Entrepreneurial passion is contagious. Engaged founding teams, who stand 100% behind the common idea, are our target group. As far as the idea is concerned, once we are open to everything, it should answer the question: “What solution do you have for what problem? With the funds of Seed Fonds III Aachen & Mönchengladbach and associated co-investors, we can finance startups with our investment, from the product idea to the foundation to the prototype.


S-UBG AG & Seed Fonds

From the outside it looks like one and many founders ask: “Who will be our partner – the S-UBG or the Seed Fonds? The latter is true, we make startup investments with the seed fund, SME investments are the domain of S-UBG. S-UBG invests “off the balance sheet”, i.e. its own capital, in selected companies it invests in. That is why long-term investments are also possible here. As a venture capital fund, the Seed Fund specialises in financing early-stage startups with high risk. For this purpose, money is collected from investors, which is to be repaid with a return at the end of the term. The end of the term is invested in such a way (> 10 years) that we are able to give the start-ups the development time they need to mature.

The seed funds are managed by a team provided by S-UBG.

Private Equity and Mezzanine Capital for Medium-Sized Companies
