We are a leading player in the European Venture Capital market. We focus on the establishment of a sustainable Venture Capital Ecosystem in Europe supporting innovation and entrepreneurship.

We concentrate on building the necessary private sector Venture Capital infrastructure to address market gaps and opportunities with the aim to further enhance the attractiveness of European Venture Capital as an alternative asset class.

How do we achieve this? We work with venture capital funds - acting as our intermediaries – that invest into innovative high-tech SMEs in their early and growth phases. We focus particularly on disruptive early-stage technology enterprises which typically face financing challenges but also provide outstanding investment opportunities.

We have built a strong expertise in the Life Sciences, Cleantech and ICT sectors and in setting-up, managing or advising tailored Fund-of-Funds, mostly with resources entrusted to us by third parties such as the European Investment Bank, the European Commission, national and regional authorities.

Are you a fund manager interested to partner with us?

We aim to make cornerstone investments in venture capital funds focusing the European market managed both by established and emerging teams.
We can offer “smart money”: besides providing funding, we can also help you in shaping and optimising your investment proposal by sharing experience and expertise in all phases and areas of structuring, raising and managing a venture capital fund. Please see how to submit your investment proposal.
