We share our experience, knowledge and networks to support founders in builiding enduring technology companies aimet at disrupting the traditional ways their markets operate.
After we reviewed the documents, we will stet up an initial call with the founders to get to know them better and develop a more profound understanding of their company and their vision.
Initially we screen the documents that you sent to us (e.g. pitch deck, two-pager or business plan) to evaluate whether your company fits our overall investment strategy.
Our team will then have an internal discussion about the potential of your start-up and how our team can contribute to the success of your venture. We then appoint a "deal captain" and the due diligence team who will work closely with you during the rest of the process.
In case we are convinced that your company is a great fit, the deal captain will set up an additional call/meeting to have a more in-depth round of evaluation. During this stage, we invite our industry expert to help validate the potential of your startup.
At this stage, we mutually agree a term sheet which will formulate the main terms and conditions of our partnership.
The investment proposal is followed by an extensive evaluation of your company, undertaken by our investment team. Legal due diligence and background checks we outsource to a specialised firm.
Upon final approval of the investment, we finalise the terms for investment milestones that are reflected in the investment agreement and sign a Shareholder's agreement.

Rather than an Investor only, we see ourselves as long term business partners to our portfolio ventures. To increase the success of our portfolio companies we create an individual development roadmap for each company to capitalize on strengths. To keep track of the roadmap we’ve created a monitoring system for nine core areas and a corresponding development process.

We work side-by-side with entrepreneurs in ups and downs. In times of hardship, we roll up our sleeves, get to the bottom and tackle tough problems together to achieve better outcome. We face challenges with confidence in our expertise and abilities.
We take as much responsibility for the company’s success as the entrepreneur. We do not micro-manage founders nor tell them what to do, rather provide them with resources and expertise to build successful ventures.
We know that a cohesive team with complementary skills is core to any business. Building and fostering a relationship with the right business partner, whose interests and values are aligned to our stakeholders, can make lasting impact.
We honour respect and humility. We communicate openly with founders and investors, while acknowledging personal confidentiality.
