We use proprietary software to discover, evaluate and support investments in the most promising European startups.
The best fit between the business idea, the founding team’s DNA and the ability to execute on the
product / technology.
Having worked with hundreds of startups over the years, we have developed extensive experience in strategy, product, technology and operations.
We are passionate about sharing our learnings with you and supporting you during your company building process.
We invest in visionary, hard-working founders
"From networking ships, it was inevitable that Miska would found Kontena: the most user friendly open source container platform for orchestrating applications running on Docker."
"Murat co-founded Marvel in the summer of 2013 as a simple way for designers to showcase interactive prototypes instead of lifeless, static mockups. Since then the vision has grown and now Marvel has its sights set on helping the world bring digital ideas to life."
"Having worked in e-commerce for years, Andrius, his brother Tomas, and co-founders are democratising drop-shipping for online store-owners all over the world."
"Chris and his team have always built companies that give superpowers to normal humans. At Qriously, they are working on predicting the future by serving questions to billions of people all over the world on their smartphones."
"Eduardo founded Returnly in 2014 from a vision of a radically improved online marketplace where all constituents have aligned interests. He's leveraging modern fin-tech to enable stores with simple and transparent ways of processing returns and accelerate the resulting credit issuance to shoppers."
"István has been a massive CAD nerd for years. Finally he decided 'enough is enough' and built his own. Shapr3D is a new way of thinking and designing, and has become one of the flagship iPad Pro apps."
"Carlo has successfully built and sold a number of companies in over 20 years of entrepreneurism. Now he's turned his attention to banking, with a passion to fundamentally change how companies manage their money."
"Aaron co-founded Traitly, the self-learning solution for recurring revenue driven companies. Traitly predicts when customers are going to leave and why. Companies can create custom messages and on-boarding flows based on each of their users’ predicted behaviour."
Coming from an entrepreneurial base, we live as a startup: building technology and products to identify the best investment opportunities in Europe. We strive to be as responsive and supportive as possible. Our relationship with entrepreneurs is our primary focus.
