We are...

16 very different people with the same goal: we all want to achieve a lot together with our portfolio companies. In total, we look back on 30 years of experience in the private equity and venture capital landscape 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, digitalisation, AI, etc. and we have a broad network of industry experts, business angels & consultants who are well known to us. 

 

We see ourselves as partners of our portfolio companies, whose founders should always keep the helm in their hands. Our team is full of different personalities, just as every start-up team is different
