btov, founded as "BrainsToVentures"

btov Partners is a European venture capital firm, managing roughly EUR 510m in institutional funds, partner funds and direct investments of private investors. We have teams in St. Gallen, Zurich, Berlin, Munich and Luxemburg, and work together with seasoned entrepreneurs and business angels to back the most promising start-ups across Europe.

As one of the largest and oldest venture capital firms in Europe, btov Partners was founded in 2000 as an online matching platform named “BrainsToVentures” and has since pioneered venture capital investment solutions for private, corporate and institutional investors. We have the same mindset as the entrepreneurs we support, investing personally in our funds, so that there's always “skin in the game” when we decide to back a venture.
