Our sweetspot for an initial investment ranges from EUR 2m up to EUR 10m with enough reserves to accompany you in follow-on rounds.
The ticket size range is not set in stone and we are flexible enough for individual investment opportunities.
As every investment opportunity will be evaluated individually, shares might differ. Generally, we prefer to secure a share of 5-10% with our initial investment. Additionally, we offer flexiblity on taking the lead or undertaking co-investments.
We highly value introductions from our network and always give priority to investment opportunities we receive through a referral. Nevertheless, in case you want to contact us directly, feel free to do so. Just keep in mind that we encourage every startup to think about why we are compatible before reaching out to us. Have a look at our investment focus to be sure that there is a fit between us.
