We are...

14 very different people who share the same goal: we all want to make a difference together with our portfolio companies. We have 30 years of experience in the private equity and venture capital space and know the ups and downs of being an entrepreneur. At the same time, the development of our start-ups gives us good access to knowledge about new technologies, digitization, AI, etc. We are supported by a broad network of industry experts, business angels and consultants well known to us.

We see ourselves as partners of our portfolio companies, whose founders should always be in the driving seat. Our team is made up of different personalities, just as every team and start-up is.
