and business needs along the value chain.
Business domains
Technology domains
These are just some examples of areas we like.

European headquarters
We focus on companies
based in Europe.

This does not mean that you don't service other markets, we just like you and your team to be primarily based in Europe.
We only invest in Business-to-Business focused companies.

If you're looking to build the next consumer brand, we're probably not for you.
Seed and early-stage
Primarily, we invest in seed and early stage companies raising between €0.5m and €5m in total funding.

This can be spread across multiple funding rounds and we prefer to be invested for more than one round.
Stages we invest in
If your value proposition relies on proprietary technology, drives efficiency, increases market share and establishes new business models in the field of Industry 4.0, tell us more about you and your venture.
